Neoen's 380 MW/ 4-hour battery project wins tender in Ontario (Canada)

Shift Solar, a wholly owned subsidiary of the renewable project developer Neoen, has been awarded a 380 MW / 4-hour capacity contract in a competitive tender initiated by the Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO), the power grid operator in Ontario (Canada). 

The Grey Owl Storage project will consist in a battery with a total capacity of 400 MW / 1,600 MWh, set to provide the IESO capacity that will contribute to meet Ontario’s growing energy needs once it becomes operational by early 2028 for a 20-year period. Neoen, through Shift Solar, will be the long-term owner and operator of the battery.

Neoen has a battery portfolio of 1,656 MW / 4,169 MWh in operation or under construction. Neoen has developed, owns and operates some of the world’s largest batteries, including: the Victorian Big Battery (300 MW / 450 MWh), the Western Downs Battery (270 MW / 540 MWh), Collie Battery 1 (219 MW / 877 MWh) and 2 (341 MW / 1,363 MWh) and the Hornsdale Power Reserve (150 MW / 193.5 MWh), all located in Australia.
