Energy Vault | 1 August 2023

After achieving mechanical completion of the critical power electronic components, commissioning of the newly constructed EVx started in June as planned, and is expected to be fully interconnected to the local state utility grid in the fourth quarter of this year

The system will be the world’s first commercial, grid-scale gravity energy storage system that offers a more economical, scalable and sustainable alternative to existing pumped hydroelectric plants that currently represent ~90% of all energy storage capacity globally

Constructed just outside of Shanghai adjacent to a wind turbine farm, the 25 MW EVx system will be one of the largest long duration energy storage systems in the world

Enabling a sustainable world with renewable energy.
