Now Accepting Proposals for Energy Storage Systems

Are you an Energy Storage System(ESS) developer? National Grid may be interested in either partnering with or purchasing from you. Our goal is to demonstrate the potential use of an ESS system to reduce peak demand impacts associated with electric vehicle DC fast charging stations. The ESS will be rated up to 250kW for 2 hours (500 kWh). Depending on the size of the supported DCFC station, smaller systems will be considered. The supported DCFC station must be publicly accessible. RFP submissions are due by April 19. If interested, contact us for more information.

Now accepting proposals from vendors experienced with charging station assessments and installations.

Experienced vendors should submit information on three to five charging station projects including references.  Or contact us  for more information.
