Client: Confidential Energy Service Company
Delivery Model: Engineering-procurement and Construction
J.L. Richards & Associates Limited (JLR) was engaged by an energy service company (ESCO) to complete a design feasibility study and an independent revenue assessment for the implementation of a 1 MW/2 MWh battery energy storage system (BESS) on an institutional campus. The purpose of the BESS was for global adjustment cost savings. Provisions were made to be able to expand the BESS to 4 MWh in the future. Following the design feasibility study, JLR was engaged by the ESCO to complete the detailed design for deployment of 1 MW/4 MWh BESS following an engineering-procurement and construction (EPC) delivery model.
JLR provided civil, structural, and electrical/energy system design expertise for both the design feasibility study and the detailed design, including support for regulatory approvals. The prepurchase of major long-lead time items by the client facilitated completion of detailed design and allowed for tight construction timelines to be met.
