SumitomoSumitomo Corporation has announced they are to commence operation of their battery power storage system, Willey Battery Utility, LLC, that they have been constructing in Hamilton County, Ohio since April 2015.

With the rise in the percentage of electricity generated from renewable resources it is becoming increasingly important to balance and manage the difference between actual and forecasted electricity demand, and stabilize the output. Sumitomo has identified this need, and has piloted projects in Japan creating battery storage systems from reused batteries of electric vehicles. These programs were piloted on the islands of Yumeshima, Osaka, Koshiki and Kagoshima in 2013 and 2014, respectively.
