Power management company Eaton and AES Corp. subsidiary AES Energy Storage have reached an agreement under which Eaton will offer AES’ Advancion energy storage platform as part of Eaton’s grid-scale, integrated energy storage systems throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA).
“Together, Eaton and AES will be able to greatly impact the energy landscape in EMEA,” Cyrille Brisson, Vice President of Marketing, Eaton electrical business in EMEA, said in a statement. “By providing market-leading, innovative energy storage systems to commercial, industrial and utility customers, we will be able to mitigate the investment needed for, and the charges and emissions resulting from, peak demand infrastructure.”
Brisson added that the widespread deployment of systems enabling peak capacity, flexible generation and grid services, coupled with the easy consumption of renewables, will help a smarter grid meet environmental targets.
Eaton will supply the energy storage systems, provide support and ensure long-term operation directly to utilities, industrial and commercial customers, independent power producers and power system operators.
