Date: 2019-06-01
Toronto-based energy storage specialist NRStor Inc. is reporting its acquisition of a 5MW connected energy storage facility, located in Clear Creek, Ontario. The Clear Creek facility was originally built by Mississauga-based Temporal Power to showcase its industry-leading flywheel energy storage technology. With this acquisition, NRStor expands its flywheel energy storage portfolio, which already includes Canada's first grid-scale flywheel energy storage facility in Minto, Ontario. NRStor expects to have the full hybrid battery and flywheel system operational in 2020.

The facility is optimally located adjacent to a 20 megawatt (MW) wind farm and existing Hydro One electrical infrastructure. With support from Sustainable Development Technology Canada (SDTC) and Hydro One, the facility originally demonstrated the effectiveness of distributed energy resources (DERs) and successfully completed reactive power validation and power quality testing. Ten 500 kilowatt (kW) flywheels were deployed in a modular arrangement to deliver 10 MW of flexible range (+/-5 MW) to the Ontario grid.
