from demand-response
initiative in which a 144kW
battery bank discharges at
peak hours to support the
electricity grid when under
stress; re-charges at

power; another advantage
is battery is able to serve
as generator in the event
of power outages, notes
Logical Buildings.
In July, battery participated
in a two-hour demand-response
event called
by Con Edison. The building
provided ~100kW from
discharging battery and
~50kW by reducing demand
from other systems, such as
cooling and lighting,
demonstrating how battery
could contribute to grid
stability when demand is
highest. In addition, program
provides signifi cant savings in
utility costs and carbon emissions
at the building level.
