EVLO to deploy a 20-MWh battery energy storage system during transmission line work

Project Energy Storage in Parent

EVLO Energy Storage Inc. announced today that it will deploy a 4-MW / 20-MWh battery energy storage system on the Hydro-Québec grid based on the lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery technology. The system will be deployed in the municipality of Parent as part of the work being carried out on a transmission line and will supply the region’s residential and commercial customers for the entire duration of the work. It will be the largest energy storage system deployed in Quebec. Once the work is completed, the system will remain in place to manage peaks on the grid and serve as an auxiliary source in the event of an outage. The installation of the energy storage system will greatly improve service continuity in this remote community, which is supplied by a single line, and will lead to a 3,500-tonne reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

The various storage system components will be delivered in fall 2021 and the system is expected to be in service by spring 2022. As part of the project, EVLO will also provide its advanced software solution, which can be used to carry out the operating and storage system management activities remotely.

EVLO will also soon be delivering two other storage systems: one 2-MW system in La Prairie, Québec, as part of the solar generating station project and a 9-MW system in Joux-la-Ville, France, as part of the Tonnerre project in collaboration with Innergex.

This project builds on the success of other systems deployed by EVLO, namely in Quaqtaq in Northern Québec, Hemmingford and Blainville, as well as in Lac-Mégantic as part of the town’s microgrid project.
