Saft, a designer and manufacturer of industrial batteries, will supply lithium-ion batteries to Green Charge Networks (GCN) as part of a $92 million smart grid demonstration project that is being led by Consolidated Edison Inc. (Con Edison).

GCN's scope of work includes the installation and operation of a network of smart storage and generation units in the distribution grid that communicate directly with Con Edison. Site selections include several convenience stores, car rental locations, hotels and parking garages, all in the New York City area.

Saft will be supplying energy-storage systems totaling close to 1 MWh, utilizing the Synerion 24M high-energy lithium-ion batteries. Installation is slated to begin in March.

Con Edison initiated the multi-year demonstration project in 2010 after receiving a U.S. Department of Energy award to identify, develop and test new technologies within the electric delivery system.
