TROES Applauds Ontario’s Record-Breaking Battery Storage Procurement to Power a Sustainable Future 

The Ontario government has announced the completion of the largest battery storage procurement in Canada’s history, securing 2,195 megawatts (MW) of capacity to meet the province’s energy needs through 2030. This landmark achievement marks a significant milestone in Ontario’s Powering Ontario’s Growth plan, ensuring dependable, clean energy for the province’s growing population and economy. 

The procurement includes 1,784 MW of clean energy storage from ten projects, with capacities ranging from 9 to 390 MW. This addition will bring Ontario’s entire storage fleet to 2,916 MW, surpassing the government’s initial target of 2,500 MW. As a leading innovator in Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) headquartered in Ontario, TROES is thrilled to witness this transformative development. 

Supporting Ontario’s Economic and Environmental Goals 

Todd Smith, Ontario’s Minister of Energy, highlighted the significance of this procurement, stating, “Our government has secured astounding new investments for the province, from electric vehicle and electric vehicle battery manufacturing to green steel, and the good quality jobs that come with them. We have now broken records once again by completing the largest battery storage procurement in Canadian history.” 

This strategic investment ensures a reliable supply of clean energy, supporting Ontario’s long-term economic growth and environmental goals. It provides a solid foundation for major international investments, new housing developments, and industrial growth, aligning with TROES’ mission to advance sustainable energy solutions.
