Here’s some background via a press release:

AES has integrated energy storage into eight different power markets and AES’ energy storage solutions represent the world’s largest advanced energy storage fleet, with 116 MW in operation and three million megawatt-hours of delivered service. Advancion is also now powering the largest fleet of advanced energy storage in Europe, with the recent completion of two Advancion arrays in the Netherlands and Northern Ireland.

Advancion is the most proven energy storage solution available and Advancion 4, the latest design introduced in November 2015, has an industry-leading compact footprint, optimized design and a patented distributed control system that enables customers to maximize revenue, reduce operating costs, and meet the highest levels of system reliability.

“With more than 50 years of experience helping customers manage energy and supporting utilities in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Eaton has a long track record of working with its customers to automate, protect and optimize a secure, cost-effective electrical grid,” stated Cyrille Brisson, Vice President of Marketing, for Eaton’s Electrical business in EMEA.

“Together, Eaton and AES will be able to greatly impact the energy landscape in EMEA. By providing market-leading, innovative energy storage systems to commercial, industrial and utility customers, we will be able to mitigate the investment needed for, and the charges and emissions resulting from peak demand infrastructure. The widespread deployment of systems enabling peak capacity, flexible generation and grid services, coupled with the easy consumption of renewables, will help a smarter grid meet environmental targets.”

    While the graphic look like big growth, it is really close to flat. Since it is cum MW hours. Any time the slope is constant means no new systems installed that year. So one add 2008, then in small one in 2011and 2012, then nothing until late 2014 or early 2015. They may be the real deal but the chart say they are growing very slow so far. Maybe 2008-2015 was the time for proving concept and now they will being to sell it. But don’t have the data yet.

    Advancion is the real deal with real world experience. They do peaker or ramp management and source from a variety of battery vendors. They recently partnered with Tesla.
