Electrovaya Inc. says it has signed a contract to provide a 1.2 MWh lithium-ion battery energy-storage system for demonstration purposes in support of renewable energy generation in Ontario.
This contract is a part of an Electrovaya-led, $7.6 million project supported by the government of Canada's Clean Energy Fund to investigate the potential use of battery energy-storage systems for clean energy projects, such as wind and solar farms. Partners in the project include Natural Resources Canada, Hydro One and others. Electrovaya is the prime contractor and system designer and will provide the full energy-storage system.
The company's energy-storage system consists of its large-format lithium-ion SuperPolymer cells, proprietary thermal and battery management systems, and all necessary subsystems.
