Progress report: Some more of US’ biggest battery projects taking shape
Energy Storage News
After the successful expansion of Moss Landing Energy Storage Facility — the biggest battery project in world to date — was reported last week, progress milestones have been recorded for three more major solar-plus-storage and standalone battery storage projects in California, Hawaii and Florida in the past couple of weeks.
