September 5, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

Res energy manageCustomized Energy Solutions (CES) has signed a multi-year agreement with Renewable Energy Systems Americas (RES Americas) to provide operations and dispatch support in optimizing its energy storage projects in the United States and Canada.

In addition, RES Canada, a division of RES Americas, announced final certification of the company’s second energy storage system, Amphora. RES Canada conceived, developed, and constructed the Amphora system, which it will own and operate in Central Strathroy, Ontario. The system is comprised of a +/-4 MW (8MW total range)/ 2.6MWh lithium battery that will provide a service called “frequency regulation” to Ontario’s grid operator, the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO). Amphora will operate under a three-year agreement with the IESO.

CES will work with RES Americas on integrating this project into the Ontario energy grid.
