On 17 October 2019, the Public Service Commission (PSC) granted a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity (CPCN) for LS Power's proposed 316 MW battery energy storage project at the Ravenswood Generating Station in Long Island, New York, US.
The Ravenswood storage project was accepted in the New York Independent System Operator (NYISO) 2019 interconnection facility study process and is therefore well positioned to be able to meet a 2022 in-service requirement.
As noted by the US Energy Information Agency in July 2019, utility-scale battery energy storage capacity in the US has more than quadrupled from the end of 2014 (214 MW) through to March 2019 (899 MW).
When fully constructed, the Ravenswood battery energy storage project will represent over 10% of the state's storage goal of 3000 MW/s by 2030, and mark New York as one of the US leaders in large-scale battery storage.
