Glass bottle maker takes on Grid Beyond to manage 8MW battery

Glass bottle maker O-I Glass is joining with GridBeyond to install and operate an 8MW battery at O-I’s facility in Alloa, Scotland. The battery and supporting energy management system uses artificial intelligence to enhance energy efficiency, resilience and sustainability.
GridBeyond system will help to stabilise the local electricity grid during peak periods, increase O-I’s resilience against brownouts and improves the grid’s efficiency and sustainability. It allows charging during times of high renewable energy availability and discharging energy to the site at peak hours of demand. In addition, the battery system will increase power resiliency at the Alloa plant by balancing voltage dips on site and helping to prevent production equipment from tripping out.
