Viridity Energy Enables Large Scale Renewable Energy Storage at Hospitals

Smart grid technology company Viridity Energy announced a partnership with Thomas Jefferson University and Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals (Jefferson) to develop and implement a large-scale energy storage project. The project will allow Jefferson to strategically manage its on-site and renewable energy resources through Viridity's dynamic load control optimization system so that electricity at or near a Jefferson site can be stored for use when it best serves Jefferson's operational needs and economic opportunities. It is hoped that the system will become a replicable model for other hospitals within the Jefferson network as well as throughout the region and country. "Philadelphia is on its way to having one of the first grid-scale urban energy storage systems in the U.S., making it a leader and a model that others will want to emulate," said Audrey Zibelman, Preside...
