URL More about Battelle Memorial Institute 5 MW / 1.25 MWh Pacific Northwest Smart Grid Demonstration
PGE’s Salem Smart Power Center (SSPC) is an Energy Storage Facility in Salem, Oregon. The project has a 5 MW, 1.25 MWh storage resource designed to increase distribution system reliability, aid renewable resource integration and decrease peak-price risk. The ESF is a key aspect of PGE’s Salem Smart Power project associated with the Pacific Northwest Smart Grid Demonstration Project test phase which began September, 2012. PGE expects demand response and utility-scale storage system use to contribute to decreases in the cost of energy: first, by shifting demand from one market-time-period to another; and finally as a renewable resource optimization technology, where the MW-scale system may be used to follow an intermittent renewable resource, such as solar or wind. (CapEx shown below covers the entire Salem project not the energy storage facility alone)
