Evaluating Powerful Batteries for Modular Electric Grid Energy Storage

Sandia has begun lab-based characterization of TransPower’s GridSaver, the largest grid energy storage (ES) system analyzed at Sandia’s Energy Storage Test Pad. Project lead David Rosewater (in Sandia’s Energy Storage Technology and Systems Dept.) said that Sandia will evaluate the 1 MW lithium-ion grid ES system for capacity, power, safety, and reliability and also investigate the [...]
