    NEC Energy Solutions (NEC ES) designs, manufactures, and integrates smart energy storage solutions for the electric grid and applications with critical power needs. Its megawatt-scale energy storage and control systems provide greater stability to the grid while maximizing renewable generation. In telecom, datacenter, and other industrial applications, its high performance lithium-ion battery systems provide better value than traditional lead-acid batteries in tough, critical power applications.

    NEC ES is widely recognized as a pioneer and leader in the market for utility scale energy storage. NEC ES has extensive experience installing and commissioning commercial grid energy storage solutions with power ratings ranging from 50 kW to more than 50 MW at numerous sites around the world. Our GSS® grid energy storage platform has been deployed in commercial revenue service since 2008, with over 250 MW installed, under construction, or in late stages of development. GSS® systems are serving applications globally that include peak shaving, renewable integration (ramp management), frequency response, frequency regulation and voltage regulation.
