Batteries for Grid Management

HNEI is involved in a number of collaborative projects with HECO wherein battery energy storage systems (BESS) are being demonstrated by connecting to support electricity grids on Hawaii Island, Oahu, and Molokai.  HNEI's recent test results on Hawaii Island indicate that BESS are able to overcome fluctuations in power frequency at the transmission level.
