Shell Canada to install 21 MWh of energy storage
Shell New Energies will install 21 MWh of industrial battery storage systems at two Shell Canada Products facilities in Ontario as part of a joint venture with Convergent Energy and Power.
“This energy storage offering complements the broader suite of solutions, including energy efficiency and energy management, that we already provide,” says Eric Bradley, global general manager, Connected Energy, Shell New Energies, in a statement. The first two projects under the joint venture are currently in the construction phase at Shell Canada Products facilities in Brockville and Sarnia, Ontario.
“Convergent is focused on building projects that save our customers real money while also increasing the overall sustainability and reliability of electricity,” says Convergent CEO Johannes Rittershausen. “We are proud to launch this joint venture with Shell to create value for a broader group of customers.” By using the energy storage solutions developed and operated by Convergent, commercial and industrial customers can lower their energy bills by decreasing the amount of electricity their facilities consume during grid peak periods, according to the statement.
Convergent is the largest operator of energy storage solutions in Ontario, with 26 MW in service, and Shell Energies North America provides comprehensive power services to industrial customers throughout North America, including Ontario.
Under the partnership agreement, Convergent’s energy storage solutions will be offered to existing Shell Energy North America customers in Canada. Convergent and Shell New Energies intend to collaborate on future projects for customers within and beyond Shell’s affiliated portfolio.
