A major northeast power producer has chosen CS Energy and Doosan GridTech to design, build and operate a community solar + storage system (PV+S) in New England. This 5.1MW-PV/2.5MW hybrid power system would be one of the first DC-coupled configurations installed under the Massachusetts SMART and Clean Peak Standard (CPS) program.
CS Energy was named the prime contractor to provide the project’s engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services. A leader in solar and storage turnkey execution nationally, the company has integrated over 75MWhs of battery storage under the Massachusetts SMART program. CS Energy worked with Doosan engineers to design the hybrid power system that will lower costs, fulfill MA-SMART and CPS requirements, optimize its financial incentives, and deliver clipped energy recapture. The system will be operational in the fourth quarter of 2021.
Doosan’s energy management solution (EMS) pairs its on-premise Intelligent Controller platform with its cloud-based performance analysis and power plant operation modules. This system is built on open standard communication interfaces and has proven its solar + storage capabilities in both AC- and DC-coupled configurations.
Doosan’s comprehensive EMS will bring:
- power plant control capability to optimize solar & storage output and maximize economic return,
- a suite of intelligent PV+S functionalities that achieve plant targets while minimizing battery degradation,
- high reliability through self-healing capabilities and zero downtime updates, and
- the ability to create custom key performance indicators, benchmarks, and visualizations, including the plant’s historical and forecasted performance – as part of its performance analyzer module.
