Batteries Go Big

More powerful and efficient large-scale energy storage technology is beginning to develop at an accelerating pace. It’s expected to play a major role in making the conversion to an all-clean energy economy possible, and it’s getting a kickstart right here in North Carolina with an advanced utility-scale battery project at Duke Energy’s Mount Holly facility.

Duke field-testing a new technology designed to provide safer, longer storage and release of electricity produced by solar and wind power, plugging supply gaps that could otherwise impact the power grid. Duke and battery manufacturer Honeywell “will test the battery for its deployment capabilities at scale, utilizing wind and solar to reduce carbon emissions and lower overall costs.”
