June 26 (Renewables Now) - Engie Storage Services NA LLC said Tuesday it will install a 2-MW/4-MWh battery storage system at San Diego International Airport (SAN) as part of the airport’s efficiency and sustainability efforts.

The US energy storage company will deploy its GridSynergy solution and pair it with the airport's solar photovoltaic (PV) arrays totalling 5.5 MW. The storage system will contribute to reducing energy charges during peak demand.

According to Engie Storage, the GridSynergy cloud-based software will analyse past and present energy generation along with usage data at the airport to calculate optimal charge and discharge cycles for the lithium-ion batteries.

The storage system is expected to become operational in early 2020.
