Greensmith Energy's GEMS Software Platform Selected by Deltro Energy Inc. for Multimillion Dollar, 53 MWh Energy Storage Partnership

HERNDON, VA--(Marketwired - Jan 20, 2016) - Greensmith Energy, one of the largest providers of energy storage software and integration services, today announced Deltro Energy Inc. selected Greensmith's GEMS software platform to deploy 53 megawatts hours (MWh) of energy storage in 2016 throughout Ontario, Canada.

The IESO, the system operator in Ontario awarded the contracts through a competitive solicitation process in 2014 as part of its Energy Storage Procurement Phase 1 project. The IESO plans to use the energy storage systems to meet its needs for ancillary services. The principal service provided under these contracts is voltage control and reactive power support, an application that's becoming increasingly important for Ontario and other regions with significant amounts of intermittent wind and solar power now on the high voltage transmission networks.

"We selected Greensmith not only because they provided the most advanced software technology, but we were looking to partner with a trusted advisor to deploy energy storage in Canada and around the world," said David Del Mastro, President of Deltro Energy Inc. "Deltro's mission is to be the leader in bringing advanced renewable generation and energy storage to our growing base of customers and partners globally and this key partnership with Greensmith will enable us to do that." 

As part of the 53 MWh project slated to fully deploy in 2016, Greensmith will supply its GEMS5 software technology, an industry-leading platform used to deliver 6 grid-scale systems in 2015 on both sides of the meter. Leclanche� will provide the entire battery storage systems for all the contracted facilities to be built near Toronto, Ontario - Canada. Leclanche� will team up with Deltro Energy Inc. who will procure, design and construct the site facilities balance of plant scope and high voltage connections to the grid.

"We are delighted to start the year by announcing this special partnership with a renewables leader such as Deltro and the first large-scale software-as-a-service agreement in the industry," said Greensmith President & CEO, John Jung. "The energy storage space is beginning to embrace the importance of advanced software and integration, that the difference between success and failure is oftentimes not just about battery selection or any single component. We've always believed that to be effective and deliver lasting ROI, energy storage is best designed and delivered as system-of-systems technology, integrated and managed throughout life. And a growing number of customers are choosing GEMS to achieve superior results as well as a speed-to-market advantage."
