Industrial battery project advances with the potential to limit blackouts due to lack of generation

He Puerto Rico Energy Bureau (NEPR) gave initial approval to an industrial-scale battery storage (BESS) project that, if realized, would have the potential to eliminate three out of every four load relays that the country is currently experiencing.

The installation and interconnection of the batteries, in accordance with the projections of LUMA Energy –which proposed the initiative–, could begin at the end of 2024, which would allow its first phase to come into operation by 2025. As presented to the NEPR, the batteries would store up to 360 megawatts (MW) of energy, which could be dispatched for periods four hours and serve as support to the network during peak consumption times, which usually occur between 6:00 and 10:00 p.m.

The first phase of “Accelerated Additional Storage Project” (ASAP, in English), which will include the installation of 185 MW, will focus on the interconnection of batteries in locations that do not require improvements to the transmission network to accommodate new generation.
