Honeywell has announced an agreement with NRStor C&I L.P. to launch the Experion® energy programme, which will create the largest behind–the-meter (BTM) energy storage deployment to date in North America. The agreement will offer energy storage as a service to commercial and industrial customers.
Under the agreement, Honeywell and NRStor will develop and operate 300 MW of BTM battery energy storage systems (BESS) across the US and Canada, starting in early 2020. Operated remotely, these systems will provide customers with electricity cost savings, improved sustainability and resiliency.
“This BTM deployment alone matches North America’s total energy storage deployments in 2018,” said Moe Hajabed, Chief Executive Officer of NRStor. “This collaboration brings Honeywell’s operational excellence, precise equipment and construction to NRStor’s projects and expands the customer base that can take advantage of our energy solutions. This also creates an opportunity for other developers to fund and implement their projects through NRStor’s platform.”
The energy storage systems will be supported by two remote operations centres (ROCs) that use proprietary artificial intelligence-based peak prediction and value stack optimisation algorithms. These centres will automatically start the battery systems to maximise savings for commercial and industrial customers. Honeywell’s control technologies will enable precise battery dispatch along with network security and cybersecurity protection.
