AES presented its Energy Storage solutions in front of the Ministry of Energy, represented by the deputy-Minister Nikolay Nikolov, Energy System Operator, Bulgarian Energy Holding, National Electricity Company and Maritza East II TPP. The vice president of AES Europe Steve Corwell explained the main advantages that Energy Storage could bring to the grid to mitigate daily variability of renewable energy generators and in the field of frequency control. Following the meeting, AES said that the “experts were very interested in the solutions” presented and decided to continue the discussion in the future in order to define the conditions for its application in Bulgaria.

On July 15th, 2015 AES began construction on its first advanced, battery-based energy storage facility in Europe. The Netherlands AdvancionTM Energy Storage Array will provide 10 MW of interconnected energy storage, equivalent to 20 MW of flexible resource. It is expected to begin operations by the end of 2015.
The array will help balance supply and demand by providing Primary Control Reserve (PCR) from the Netherlands. It will support the European transmission grid via transmission system operator, TenneT. The Advancion array will also enhance European power supply, enable more efficient dispatch of existing generation assets, and increase the ability to integrate renewable power sources in Europe.

On July, 20th AES announced that it has begun construction of its first advanced, battery-based energy storage facility in the United Kingdom. The Kilroot AdvancionTM Energy Storage Array will provide 10 MW of interconnected energy storage, equivalent to 20 MW of flexible resource. The array is expected to begin operations by the end of 2015.

AES’ Advancion solution is built with pre-qualified battery technology from best-in-class suppliers and incorporates AES’ eight years of commercial experience with advanced energy storage and more than 30 years of experience in serving utilities around the world. Advancion is continuously available, without burning fuel, and is designed as a scalable resource, offering the ability to grow over time to meet future power needs.

AES currently has 86 MW of interconnected battery-based energy storage, which is equivalent to 172 MW of flexible resource in commercial operation in the United States and Chile.
