FlexGen to Provide Middle River Power Projects with 420MWh of Energy Storage

FlexGen to Provide Middle River Power

On January 17, 2023, FlexGen Power Systems, Inc., a top battery energy storage solution and software technology provider, announced its selection for providing energy storage software and technology for 420MW of energy storage across four locations in California to Middle River Power. The energy storage projects are located along the current simple cycle natural gas peaking plants and will have interconnected facilities.

Collocation of the natural gas peaking facilities with battery storage will significantly decrease greenhouse gas emissions while maintaining reliable and flexible reserve capacity. The battery facilities will be utilized to store excess carbon-free power during the day and discharge it in the evening when it is most needed, improving the use of these valuable renewable resources and providing critical ancillary services to the market. Additionally, the gas turbines will dispatch significantly less frequently than they do currently, which will result in reduced emissions, and it will continue to be available even in challenging circumstances.

FlexGen is committed to providing its customers with best-in-class service and performance to its customers who are seeking to ensure safety, resilience, and reliability in any setting where it operates. FlexGen's top HybridOS energy management system platform provides the full stack of energy storage value, which includes capacity, ancillary services, and energy market trading. The Middle River Power projects add to Flexgen's fast-growing fleet of energy storage assets, which are in use throughout the US with Investor-Owned Utilities, Independent Power Producers, and Municipal and Cooperative Utilities.

Mark Kubow, President of Middle River Power, said, "We're thrilled to work with FlexGen to bring these innovative projects to fruition, integrating additional renewable energy while enhancing a resilient grid. The energy storage assets store abundant solar energy in the middle of the day then deploy that energy to the grid during evening peak hours, while maintaining our natural gas facilities as a flexible, reliable backstop." He added, "We are excited to introduce our first tranche of projects that takes such a meaningful step in helping California in the transition to more renewable resources."
