E.on's Texas Waves energy storage projects come online

Published 29 January 2018

E.on stated that its Texas Waves energy storage projects, co-located at the existing E.on Pyron and Inadale wind farms in West Texas, have commenced operations.

Texas Waves consists of two 9.9MW short duration energy storage projects using lithium-ion battery technology and are an integral part of the wind farm facilities near Roscoe, Texas.

Texas Waves are designed to provide ancillary services to the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) market and can respond to shifts in power demand more quickly, improving system reliability and efficiency.

E.on North America vice president and energy storage head Mark Frigo said: "We're excited to be able to provide fast-responding, dispatchable generation to help meet the energy demands of one of the fastest growing populations and economies in the country.

"In addition, Texas Waves helps to solidify our position as a leader in the North American energy storage market."

These projects are the second and third grid connected lithium-ion battery systems installed by E.on in North America.

E.on's first grid connected lithium battery system project, Iron Horse, contains a 10MW energy storage facility with an adjacent 2.4MW solar array southeast of Tucson, Arizona, and came online in 2017.

E.on has developed, built, and operates more than 3,600 MW of solar and wind renewable energy generation across the US, with more on the way. E.on also offers O&M and asset management services to third party owner/operators looking for "Service with an Owner's Eye."
