Glenwood Bringing Distributed Energy Storage To Luxury Buildings In NYC

One of the top developers of luxury rental properties in Manhattan — Glenwood — will soon be adding a full megawatt of distributed energy storage systems to its network of properties in the New York City area, according to a recent press release sent to CleanTechnica.

The energy storage systems — which are expected to be operational in time for the peak load season in the summer — will start being installed at chosen properties this month. The systems will reportedly support the Indian Point Demand Management Program being offered to commercial customers by Con Ed and NYSERDA.


“We all need to work together to manage our electric grid and intelligently manage load growth in NYC, and this pioneering technology offers a viable solution,” stated Josh London, VP of Management for Glenwood. “In our mission to expand sustainable practices within the Glenwood portfolio, energy storage is an ideal solution that helps ConEd and NYSERDA solve real and pressing problems in managing the grid, while simultaneously elevating the quality of life at our properties.”

The new energy storage systems follow on earlier moves towards the technology by the developer — including the installation of a system at its Barclay Tower property.

According to London: “We’ve had a great experience and gained tremendous insights into how we can enhance our building operations through Demand Energy’s cloud-based management platform, building analytics and operational models for behind-the-meter (BTM) energy storage. We are eager to deploy their technology across our entire portfolio.”

The new systems will be provided by the top battery solutions firm EnerSys — which will also install and operate them.

“EnerSys brings more than 100 years of experience in the battery industry, a full range of integrated support services and the deep technical expertise needed to deliver the long life and performance required to assure both building and grid system reliability and resiliency,” stated Ed Stein, Manager of Business Development for EnerSys.
