Doosan inks deal for energy storage system in TexasDoosan GridTech, a subsidiary of Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction that primarily works on energy and water generation projects, has inked an order to supply energy storage systems to a substation in Austin, the company said Monday.
It is the company’s first order inked after Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction acquired Seattle-based 1Energy Systems, a software platform provider for energy storage systems, and changed the company name to Doosan GridTech in July.
An energy storage system refers to a facility that stores energy during periods of low energy consumption for flexible use later.
The system has proven necessary for power generation through renewable energy sources like wind and solar.
The Kingsbery substation in Austin will bank on Doosan’s system to develop its solar power generation of 3-megawatt-hour capacity.
