Energy Storage System Coming to KC

KCP&L is piloting a new smart grid energy storage technology in Kansas City.

KCP&L, MRIGlobal, and Exergonix Inc. are running a trial of a new smart grid energy storage technology in Kansas City.

Developed by Exergonix, the new technology features a nano-battery, one-megawatt cell that is being tested in its first live smart grid test. Installed last summer, the battery will support KCP&L’s SmartGrid Demonstration Area.

The battery is being tested for its effectiveness for managing energy on the electric grid. “The battery stores solar energy produced in the Demonstration Area, and is used to support energy delivery during peak demand times of the day.”
