Energy storage is a central catalyst for modernizing and creating a more resilient, efficient, sustainable and affordable electric grid.
As more large-scale renewable energy projects come online, and intermittent resources are added to the energy mix, it is becoming increasingly important to find ways to keep the electrical grid stable. Energy storage can play a significant role in helping to integrate renewables into the grid while maintaining grid stability, as well as providing firm energy output during periods of peak usage, which prevents system outages during extreme weather conditions.
Key Capture Energy is an independent developer of utility-scale battery storage projects ranging anywhere between 2 to 200 megawatts.
With a focus on meeting the needs of the electric grid, we identify, prospect, develop and deploy energy storage applications that address wholesale market revenues, capacity, energy arbitrage, ancillary services, and non-wires alternatives.
Key Capture Energy was founded in 2016 to develop new projects that would serve the electric grid in New York and surrounding northeastern states. Led by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s clean energy goals of 50% clean energy by 2030, New York has the largest energy storage target per capita recorded yet by any state. As energy storage is gaining a foothold at the forefront of the energy industry, we now have a portfolio of projects in various stages of development across North America and are on track to install multiple projects in 2019.
