User Details

Since its first implementation almost one hundred years ago, the concept of Grid-Scale Energy Storage has provided communities with increased energy reliability and lower energy costs. With the growing integration of and preference for renewable energy sources, as well as the growing demand for power in general, the need for energy storage methods to maintain consistent supply and increase efficiency grows as well. Although there are many storage methods currently available, and still more being developed, choosing the best method and successfully implementing a project can be daunting without the right experience.

Join us for our 5th National Grid-Scale Energy Storage Conference, taking place in Albany, New York on the 20th and 21st of November, and learn from the experts how to address these challenges!

Site Visit

The New York Power Authority's Blenheim-Gilboa Pumped Storage Power Project*

Large-scale electricity storage will be a critical part of a clean energy future. But long before engineers sought to store power from intermittent energy sources such as wind or solar, NYPA was already a leader in energy storage. The Blenheim-Gilboa Pumped Storage Power Project, about 60 miles from Albany, uses hydroelectric technology and two large reservoirs at different altitudes to generate up to 1,160,000 kilowatts of electricity. The plant uses power to pump water from the lower reservoir to the upper reservoir. Then it generates power as the water descends through the project's turbine-generators to create electricity, making it like a giant rechargeable battery. The facility provides power to the grid at moments of peak demand and then recharges, restoring itself to readiness when demand and power prices are low. There is no extra charge to attend the site visit, but spaces are limited and will be allocated to conference attendees on a first come, first served basis.

Please register your attendance when booking for the conference.

*Attendance is subject to approval from the facility host. Site visit will take place a day prior to the conference.
