The AES Corporation (AES) was presented with the Edison Electric Institute’s (EEI) 2019 Edison Award. This award is reserved for electric power producers who innovate in their field. AES was selected for this honor after having completed its large-scale solar and energy storage project in Hawaii. The project consists of 28 MW of solar photovoltaic (PV) and a 100 MWh five-hour duration energy storage system. This system will provide about 11% of Kaua’i’s electricity needs. This is an enormous step forward as it demonstrates the viability of large-scale renewable energy projects, especially when paired with energy storage. Read the full story here.
