Ryerson graduate students will have access to a research project involving a 150 kilowatt Li-ion battery situated at Dundas and Mutual streets. Research for the Ryerson Battery Energy Storage System project will commence once the battery is connected to the Toronto Hydro grid. Designed and manufactured by Electrovaya, the battery was delivered in early October 2015 and will be the object of a research project aimed at correcting problems from the city’s electricity grid. The project cost about $8 million to fund and it initially launched in 2010, starting with the development of the battery. With Electrovaya, Hydro One, Toronto Hydro and a number of other companies sponsoring the project, Ryerson was enlisted to conduct the research on the battery for one year. Once that year is over, that battery will be sent back to its manufacturers who can then decide to test it at other locations.
This data has been validated by project staff through a review of publicly available information about the project, and verified by the project owner. Information is accurate as of 2016-04-29.
