Younicos Inc. has entered into an agreement with leading solar power supplier OCI Solar Power to provide a turnkey battery storage system at one of OCI Solar Power’s projects in Texas. The system will be the first integrated grid-scale solar-plus-storage project to be deployed in the ERCOT market.

Younicos will be responsible for design, engineering, integration and construction of the 1 MW system, which is expected to come online in early 2016. It will also be the first use of LG Chem battery technology in ERCOT. Younicos’s own proprietary control software will manage system performance within the ERCOT market in conjunction with operation of the solar farm.
