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.

A large-scale energy storage independent power producer (IPP), 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 100% clean energy by 2030, New York has the largest energy storage target per capita recorded yet by any state. In September of 2019, Key Capture Energy completed the first project under the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority’s (NYSERDA) energy storage incentive program, KCE NY 1. Following that, our KCE NY 11 project received an energy storage incentive award from NYSERDA in January of 2020. As energy storage is gaining a foothold at the forefront of the energy industry, we have expanded our efforts and now have a portfolio of projects in various stages of development across North America and are on track to install multiple projects in 2020. Texas has led the nation for years in installed wind capacity and solar is becoming the state’s fastest-growing electricity source, making the quick response of battery storage a cost-effective solution to provide grid resiliency across the entire Texas footprint. Our Texas energy storage projects help meet Texas’ growing electricity demand.
