Enfinite has funded and developed two energy storage projects that are now operational and supporting the power grid in Alberta, Canada.
Enfinite’s eReserve3 and eReserve5 projects will increase the reliability of Alberta’s electricity system by utilizing the latest energy storage technology, the company says. The eReserve3 project is a 20 MW battery storage project located in Grande Prairie County in northwestern Alberta. The eReserve5 project is also a 20 MW project located in the Provost district in eastern Alberta.
In addition to these operations, Enfinite currently has four operational battery storage facilities in Alberta, capable of storing 140 MWh of energy.
“We are excited to announce the launch of two more eReserve projects,” said Jason White, Chief Operating Officer of Enfinite. “Overall, our eReserve program will help modernize Alberta’s electricity system, lower electricity transmission costs, provide a solution to renewable energy intermittency and ensure affordability for consumers.”
Enfinite is Canada’s largest battery storage operator, with 315 MWh of storage in use or under construction. Enfinite also has more than 900 MWh of battery inventory and related equipment committed to active projects this year, with a project pipeline of more than 4,000 MWh planned for jurisdictions across Canada. The company is currently developing five energy storage facilities in Alberta, which are expected to be operational by the end of this year.
