UEP CCNY Demonstration

Technology Type Zinc-nickel Oxide Flow Battery
Rated Power 100 kW
URL More about UEP CCNY Demonstration
In partnership with the CUNY Energy Institute, Urban Electric Power (UEP) has recently constructed a 100kW energy storage system utilizing the advanced Zn-NiO battery technology that can undergo over 5,000 deep discharge cycles with a high total system energy efficiency of >85%. The 100kW battery installation in the basement of Steinman Hall at the Grove School of Engineering at CCNY will allow the school to reduce their peak power usage, resulting in significant electrical energy savings. The system is rated for 100kW and is being installed in 2 phases; the first phase, which will be operational in June 2013, will allow the delivery of the rated power for a period of 30 minutes. The second phase will be completed by the end of 2013 and will increase the capacity of the system to 200kWh, allowing the delivery of the rated power over 2 hours.
This data has been validated by project staff through a review of publicly available information about the project, and verified by the project owner.
