Habitat Energy is optimizing the 50MW/50MWh Byrd Ranch battery storage project on behalf of Glidepath Power Solutions.

Located in Sweeny, Texas, the asset was commissioned in Habitat Energy’s Qualified Scheduling Entity (QSE) in July 2023 and is now providing vital services to help ensure the reliability and stability of the ERCOT grid.

Investment in new grid-scale energy storage capacity is growing rapidly across the United States, set to more than double to 8.9GW / 27GWh in 2023, according to Wood Mackenzie – efficiently integrating renewable generation and adding valuable reliability to the nation’s electricity supply in the face of extreme weather fluctuations.

Habitat Energy is optimizing these assets using a combination of artificial intelligence and machine learning forecasting tools, optimization algorithms, and a full commercial trading team as the “human-in-the-loop” to provide oversight, feedback, and context to the automated platform. This combination of advanced analytics and subject matter expertise ensures the highest returns while complying with each client’s unique market, physical, and commercial preferences.
