Saturn Power to Partner with Peak Power on Software for Battery System in Ontario
Toronto, ON, August 29th, 2019 – Today, Peak Power Inc. (“Peak”) announced a partnership with Saturn Power (“Saturn”) to provide software services for an upcoming energy storage project in Ontario. Saturn Power has been active in the Battery Storage and Global Adjustment market since 2017 and continues to make advancements in securing Behind the Meter projects in Ontario.
“Given the significant benefits that battery storage projects can provide to our clients, Saturn Power wanted to invest in a software solution that would maximize the value gained from a Battery Energy Storage System.” Said Tai Nguyen, Chief Investment Officer at Saturn Power.
Peak, using it’s AI-powered Synergy™ platform that has been deployed in 4 ISO regions, will optimize battery operation to capture multiple value streams. These include reducing Global Adjustment (“GA”) and Demand Charges for Saturn’s clients, as well as participation in various IESO market programs.
“We’re looking forward to working with Saturn Power on this upcoming battery project in our home market,” said Peak Power CEO, Derek Lim Soo. “This agreement with a fellow Ontario-based company is an ideal step in the growth journey for both of us.”
Peak Power’s software has predicted all IESO GA peaks with a 95% dispatch accuracy since 2017.
