Utility-scale energy storage company Jupiter Power LLC announced its plans of developing six stand-alone, utility-scale battery storage projects this year, totaling 652 megawatt hours of energy storage capacity. The projects consist of three 200-megawatt-hour projects and three smaller projects, each strategically sited and configured at optimized locations. The projects are all expected to be online by Q3 2021. The company was founded in 2017 and this will be the company’s first deployment. The focus of these projects is not just to ensure grid stability and provider back up but the company is aiming to ensure that the cheapest power is available. The company further has around 10GW of battery storage projects under development that it hopes to construct between 2022 and 2026. The company follows an unconventional approach towards projects as it starts developing projects without contracts in place to deliver capacity to the grid or ancillary services like frequency response etc. Instead it focuses on finding the most strategic sites where the deployment of energy storage can most benefit the grid.
