- Launches Modular Clean Energy Storage System Scalable from 1- 100MWh
- Allows Storage of Renewable Energy and Replaces Need for Peaker Plants
- Allows Local Distributed Energy in Growing Cities without need for Additional Transmission Lines
TORONTO Jan. 24
For utilities with increasing renewable generation, the Electrovaya system offers a compact, efficient and reliable solution to firm these intermittent generation sources. The Electrovaya product works by storing electrical energy from renewable energy or other sources during off-peak periods and then providing power at periods of peak demand.

Furthermore, for regions with increasing urbanization that require urban Peaker plants and/or added high voltage transmission lines, the Electrovaya product line provides a highly efficient, small footprint cost-competitive solution.
"As electricity demand escalates in growing regions, Electrovaya’s Clean Energy Storage System can deliver peak electricity when new transmission lines are difficult to build and can replace the need for new Peaker Plants," continues Dr. Das Gupta. "This could be a game changer for many regions grappling with the challenges of managing peak power production while reducing emissions and the impact of new infrastructure projects on their communities."
The Energy Storage System is based on Electrovaya’s proprietary Lithium Ion SuperPolymer(R) cell technology which is ideal for Large Scale Energy Storage Applications. Modular and scalable from 1MWh to 100 MWh or more, the Energy Storage system is controlled and monitored by Electrovaya’s iBMS(R), an intelligent battery management system. The Electrovaya system is capable of storing electricity at a round trip efficiency of about 90%. The product line is designed for minimized footprint and can be installed anywhere along the generation, transmission and distribution points of a utility system.
