Hawaiian Electric Companies (HECO) awards Open Access Technology International, Inc. (OATI) contract to demonstrate how HECO can harness grid services to enhance Hawaii’s renewable portfolio.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) February 01, 2017
OATI is pleased to announce its Regulation Reserves Demonstration Project with HECO, Hawaii’s largest electric utility. OATI will provide HECO with a project demonstrating how Grid Services can utilize Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) to enhance grid operations.
Hawaii’s renewable market is poised to grow significantly over the next few decades. First launched in 2008, Hawaii and the U.S Department of Energy’s Clean Energy Initiative aims to achieve 100 percent clean energy for the state by 2045. To support this objective, OATI will securely command and control field assets from residential to commercial sites across multiple islands, enabling HECO to use the assets for grid services. These grid services will include regulating reserves, along with frequency response and capacity.
“OATI is excited to showcase how our solutions blend with multiple field assets,” said Ali Ipakchi, Senior Vice President, Smart Grid and Green Power at OATI. “This project will provide increased appreciation of grid services and help HECO achieve their renewable goals.”
