PJM RTO Accepts Altairnano Grid-Scale, Battery Energy Storage System

Altair Nanotechnologies Inc.’s one megawatt (MW), 250 kWh lithium-ion battery storage system has met requirements to participate in the PJM Regional Transmission Organization (RTO) control area. This marks the first commercial acceptance of an advanced Lithium-Titanate battery to provide grid regulation services in one of the largest electricity markets in the US.

Altairnano has a joint development agreement with AES Energy Storage LLC, a subsidiary of the AES Corporation, to develop grid-scale energy storage applications. PJM Interconnection is a regional transmission organization (RTO) that coordinates the movement of wholesale electricity in 13 states and the District of Columbia, serving approximately 51 million people.

AES Energy Storage LLC completed the standard acceptance testing for regulation service within the PJM service territory earlier this week. The tests were completed by a one MW energy storage unit incorporating Altairnano’s Lithium-Titanate cells. This unit was part of an earlier AES technology validation effort in Indiana. The unit is now available for commercial operation as a qualified market participant for regulation service by AES Energy Storage.

Earlier this week, AES Energy Storage also installed its first Hybrid Ancillary Power Units (H-APU) from A123Systems. (Earlier post.)



Nice market for Altair to grab a piece of. Their batts should also be powering a test fleet of hybrid buses with route recharging systems. Good for ALTI.


And I have "met the requirments" to become a billionaire.
Unfortunatly I do not have any money.
But I have met the requirements.

Great wordsmithing. When Altair adds PO#s and black ink to thier vocabulary we may start to think that they have something of value.

What about that state of the art prototypeing and devleopment center in Anderson Indiana.

2005 they had plans to put 100 people there.

When I called there in 2008 they only had one employee.
How many people are there now today. Not will be hired. Not future. Today?

Dave Lynch Please show us some PICTURES INSIDE of the facility with actual machines and people there Not some realestate brokers emailed pdf file of the outside of the building that appears in some local online news print.

Now 2008 is doing.
