Holy Name High School is embracing energy storage!

On Thursday, executives with Vionx Energy and National Grid celebrated the completion and commissioning of Vionx’s 3 MWh storage unit at Holy Name Junior/Senior High School in Worcester, Mass. Designed for a lifetime of 20-plus years, the system will store energy from the school’s own wind turbine, as well as other sources of power generation from the surrounding community, and discharge it for up to six hours per day. In turn, power normally lost from intermittent sources will now be stored in the Vionx unit. The system, which was constructed as part of a partnership with Vionx, National Grid and Worcester Polytechnic Institute, will be used to test and operate in 13 specific use-case applications, providing National Grid with data to help optimize its grid operations for renewable energy assets. The battery stack design was developed and engineered by researchers at the ...
