The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) today announced the completion of Key Capture Energy’s system, the largest battery installation in New York which will serve the state’s electrical system by enhancing power grid performance and reliability and will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The 20-megawatt energy storage system supports Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s Green New Deal, the most aggressive climate change initiative in the nation which mandates New York’s energy storage target of 3,000 megawatts by 2030, the largest target in the country.
Alicia Barton, President and CEO, NYSERDA, said, “Governor Cuomo has set New York on a path to lead the country and the world when it comes to deploying clean energy, and this project is more evidence that New York is not wasting any time getting started. This first project under NYSERDA’s energy storage incentive program — the largest battery installation in the state to date — will enhance our electric system and demonstrate the value of large scale energy storage systems that will accelerate our ability to meet the state’s commitment to a carbon-free electric system by 2040.”
