Glenwood Management reveals Manhattan’s first battery-based, intelligent energy storage system, The Joule.System™, designed by Demand Energy Networks, Inc..
The Joule.System™ provides 225 kilowatts (kW) of power with 2 megawatt hours (MWh) of stored energy capacity to Glenwood’s flagship property, Barclay Tower, a 58-story luxury residential high rise on 10 Barclay Street, New York.
This installation is significant because it has the ability to radically alter the way electricity is delivered. It ushers in a new design architecture for city electrical grids, allowing them to become smarter, more adaptable, and operate more efficiently.
Our current grid infrastructure is aging. It lacks intelligence, and is generally inflexible in handling the growing demands of consumers in a rapidly accelerating electronic age. Energy generated from renewable sources is difficult to integrate since it isn’t reliable and doesn’t generate when we need it.
Thus, the adoption of intelligent energy storage as part of the electricity supply chain solves many of these challenges.
