Dominica To Build A US$50m Battery Storage System For Renewable Energy

A 5-megawatt/2.5 megawatt-hours battery energy storage system is slated to provide the Commonwealth of Dominica the necessary reserve power from existing sources of renewable energy in the island in times of calamities and emergencies.

This battery storage system will be connected to Dominica’s national grid, and is anticipated to encourage the use of renewable energy in the Caribbean nation by harnessing the resources from existing hydropower—and even future geothermal sources.

“The 5MW battery storage system will enable us to move more quickly to the transition from fossil fuel to renewable sources of energy in the electricity sector,” said Dr. Roosevelt Skerrit, Prime Minister of the Commonwealth of Dominica.
