URL More about Axion PowerCube for PJM (New Castle, PA)
Axion Power International, Inc., the developer of advanced lead-carbon PbC® batteries and energy storage systems, on November 22, 2011, integrated its PowerCube™ battery energy storage and battery system as a power resource for the PJM Regulation Market, which serves 58 million people in all or parts of 13 states and the District of Columbia. The use of PowerCube on the PJM market marks the first time an external energy storage system has been integrated into a major power grid. Axion Power, working in partnership with Philadelphia-based Viridity Energy on this and other projects, is initially participating in the PJM market as a 100 kw resource that will soon be ramped to higher kw levels. As a curtailment service provider in PJM, Viridity Energy will be managing the Axion PowerCube, a highly mobile and scalable 500kw/250kw Battery Energy Storage System.
