Go Electric Inc., a provider of energy resiliency and microgrid solutions, announced it successfully completed technology validation testing at the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) for the Wells Fargo Innovation Incubator (IN2) program.
Wells Fargo Foundation funded the validation testing through a grant provided by their IN2 program, and testing was accomplished in the state-of-the-art Energy Systems Integration Facility (ESIF), located at NREL. NREL validated four key capabilities of Go Electric’s LYNC DR energy resiliency solution: providing blip-less uninterruptible power; maintaining photovoltaics systems from tripping after a grid interruption event; compliance to IEEE1547 and Hawaiian Electric interconnection requirements; and demonstration of automated demand response dispatch. These capabilities ensure a facility has resilient power without any interruptions during a grid outage and from any energy resource, including renewables. LYNC DR also supports grid resiliency through demand response and other ancillary services.
“We are delighted with the results of the validation testing,” said Lisa Laughner, CEO of Go Electric. “The Wells Fargo IN2 program has been a critical part of Go Electric’s commercialization journey and we are pleased to demonstrate LYNC DR’s capabilities, especially the ability to integrate renewables into an energy resiliency solution and keep them operating during a grid outage.”
“Go Electric’s LYNC DR demonstrated unique capabilities for energy resiliency,” said Ramsey Huntley, Environmental Affairs Program Officer at Wells Fargo. “These capabilities not only reduce the energy impact of facilities, they also provide resilient power to sustain facilities and help them serve communities during a grid outage.”
Go Electric and Wells Fargo are looking forward to exploring an additional opportunity in the IN2 program deploying a LYNC DR system at a Wells Fargo facility.
