ArcLight Capital & Elevate to build 60MWh New York battery

June 3, 2024

ArcLight Capital Partners and battery storage developer Elevate Renewables are to build a  15 MW / 60 MWh battery storage infrastructure project at the Arthur Kill Power Station in Staten Island, New York.

The 15 MW/60 MWh distribution-level project will replace existing generation scheduled to retire in 2025. Elevate is a wholly owned subsidiary of a fund managed by ArcLight.

Once completed, the project will be the largest battery storage installation in New York City, a statement said. The facility will be able to power more than 10,000 households during peak demand periods.

Eric Cherniss, head of development at Elevate Renewables, said: “The Arthur Kill re-development project will install the latest energy storage technology on the site of a former power generation plant. This project is illustrative of Elevate’s battery expertise, significant development pipeline, and ability to help enable strategic battery storage infrastructure to help meet New York State’s energy storage target of 6GW by 2030. It further demonstrates our ability to catalyse large-scale battery storage projects and help provide low-cost renewable power with increased grid reliability to consumers.”

Dan Revers, founder & partner at ArcLight, added: “We believe battery storage infrastructure has the potential to be transformative and will be necessary to help meet the growing power needs from electrification and data centers, and is also a complement to the ongoing build-out of wind and solar renewable infrastructure. ArcLight is well positioned to capitalise on the renewable infrastructure mega trend. This project builds upon ArcLight’s extensive track record within the power and renewable infrastructure sectors over the past 20 years.”
