Duke Energy invests in battery storage


CHARLOTTE — Duke Energy’s advancement of battery energy storage technologies in the Carolinas includes $500 million of projects in the company’s 15-year forecast — continuing the company’s industry-leading deployment of the technology.


In the company’s recent Integrated Resource Plan (IRP), Duke Energy outlined plans to deploy $500 million in battery storage projects in the Carolinas over the next 15 years — equal to about 300 megawatts of capacity. Combining battery storage from all utilities, North Carolina has only about 15 megawatts of battery storage capacity in operation, and far less in South Carolina.
