The electric industry before and after the Alamitos Battery Energy Storage System (BESS)
Today, energy storage is an ingrained topic in any renewables conversation. But not too long ago, energy storage was viewed as a potentially risky, not-yet-proven technology that couldn’t compete with traditional peaker plants, and it “certainly” wasn’t ready to be implemented on a mass scale. But, because of the Alamitos BESS created together with Southern California Edison (SCE) and Fluence, the energy storage industry was born.
Don’t just take our word for it. This is why the Edison Electric Institute (EEI) named the AES Alamitos BESS the winner of the 2021 U.S Edison Award.
