Younicos announced on April 18 that it had commissioned a commercial 1-MW/2-MWh lithium-ion battery system in Denver that will serve as a key part of a futuristic solar-plus-storage microgrid – and a smart neighborhood – being tested by Japanese electronics giant Panasonic.
In addition, the project involves a third partner, Xcel Energy, and its subsidiary, Public Service Company of Colorado. Xcel will own the installation and Panasonic will service and operate it.
