2018 Site Tours
November 6, 2018 - 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
ESNA site tours give attendees the opportunity to see an operational energy storage system in action. Tours will cover several different technologies and applications.
Space in each site tour is limited. Registration for site tours will open on June 25, 2018 and will be available on a first come, first reserved basis. Individuals may register for one tour per person.
Currently ESNA has confirmed the following site tours:
AltaGas Pomona Energy Storage Site
The AltaGas Pomona Energy Storage Site was part of the Aliso Canyon emergency energy storage procurement process and achieved commercial operations in December 2016. AltaGas constructed the 20MW / 80MWh lithium ion battery system facility in less than four months, achieving the industry's fastest deployment of 20 MW storage. The AltaGas facility reflects close collaboration of many leaders in the energy storage space, including Samsung, Parker Hannifin and Greensmith. On this site tour, attendees will have the opportunity to interact with AltaGas staff and view the battery installation.
Distance: 26 miles
Southern California Edison Norwalk Enhanced Gas Turbine (EGT) Storage Site
The Southern California Edison Hybrid Enhanced Gas Turbine (EGT) is located at the Center Peaker Plant in Norwalk, CA. A GE Hybrid EGT is installed on an existing 50 MW natural gas peaker plant. At the heart of this technology is the integration of a GE 10 MW / 4.3MWh lithium ion battery energy storage system with a turbine featuring an advanced emission control system. The EGT is designed to respond immediately to changing energy needs. On this site tour, attendees will observe the unit and learn how this innovative system reduces greenhouse gas emissions, air pollution, fuel and water consumption and maintenance costs.
Distance: 29 miles
Cancellations made less than two (2) days prior to the site tour will incur a 100% charge. Site tour must be paid in full by October 26, 2018 or the registration will be canceled and seat will be made available to other attendees.
