Eos Energy to supply 240 MWh of energy storage capacity to Bridgelink
Eos Energy Enterprises, a leading zinc-based energy storage systems supplier, has announced the signing of a master supply agreement with Bridgelink Commodities, LLC for proposed storage projects across Texas in the US.
Bridge link has committed to purchase 240 MWh of energy storage capacity powered by Eos's 'Znyth' zinc-based technology, accompanied by an option to purchase long-term maintenance support along with an additional option to expand to a total of 500 MWh over a term of 3 years. This represents an order value of about $150 million in total.
The company has over 8 GW of renewable generation projects in development and will rely on Eos technology to support energy curtailment recapture, thereby providing resilience to the local power grid overseen by the Electric Reliability Council of Texas ("ERCOT").
"We continue to be excited about our ability to deliver flexible energy storage solutions to the market", said Joe Mastrangelo, Chief Executive Officer of Eos. "We take great pride in being able to partner with Bridgelink to help build the energy infrastructure of the future and are confident that our agreement will be the beginning of a fruitful partnership for many years to come."
William Flaherty, Managing Director at Bridgelink, said, "ERCOT is a dynamic market that requires long-duration storage technology to achieve success in this evolving environment".
"Eos' zinc-based battery is a perfect solution for Bridgelink thanks to their U.S.-made, safe, and low OPEX technology. Together, Eos and Bridgelink look forward to supporting the next paradigm of a reliable ERCOT grid while adding manufacturing jobs in the U.S", he added.
The latest order for Eos follows the recent announcement on the expansion of its Pittsburgh manufacturing facility to more than triple output to 800 MWh by year-end to meet production demand for its 'Znyth' aqueous zinc batteries. The expansion is expected to create more than 125 green jobs and increase the facility to nearly 100,000 square feet.
"With this partnership, our backlog grows to more than $200 million and is rapidly approaching 1 GWh. We continue to make real progress towards our $400 million booked order target for 2022 with a commercial opportunity pipeline of more than $4 billion," said Balki Iyer, Chief Commercial Officer of Eos.
