Largest battery to put into operation in Los Angeles by 2021

Los Angeles (USA) authorities expect to bring into effect the most powerful in the world battery by 2021.

The battery will be an array of 18 thousand lithium ion batteries capable of giving a hundred megawatt-hours of electricity for four hours. Its construction is planned in Long Beach to the south of Los Angeles.

The main source of energy for the batteries will be wind power, operating at night. The creators of the giant battery are the US company Southern California Edison and AES.

The battery must reduce the peak load on the gas power plant in Los Angeles attributable to the second half of the day. It should be reminded that the US authorities, Canada and Mexico agreed to establish partnership for environmental preservation in which they intend to increase the share of clean energy in the continent by 2025 to 50% of total production.
