The biggest battery system in New York is now storing electricity at a technology campus north of Albany to help stabilize the state’s power grid and reduce carbon emissions.
The 20-megawatt installation of thousands of lithium-ion batteries will store excess power from the grid and release it when needed. The project, by an Albany-based start-up called Key Capture Energy, received $1.3 million from the state as the first recipient of a $150 million program to help the shift from fossil fuels, according to a statement Thursday.
