Luminate provides comprehensive independent engineering services to the energy storage industry. Our experience includes both electrochemical and mechanically-based energy storage technologies including systems deployed on both sides of the meter. Leveraging extensive experience with energy project finance and resource consulting, we have in-house capabilities to provide technology evaluations, energy storage performance modeling, and independent engineering reviews for standalone and hybrid (e.g. solar, wind, gas turbine) energy storage projects.
Terra-Gen 1,118 MW Solar and 2,165 MWh Energy Storage Project
Luminate serves as independent engineer for Terra-Gen’s financing of its Edwards Sanborn solar + storage project in Kern County, California. Ultimately consisting of 1,118-MW of solar generation and 2,165-MWh of energy storage, the Edwards Sanborn facility will be the largest solar-plus-storage project globally.
Capital Dynamics’ and 8minute Solar Energy’s 400 MW Solar, 300 MW / 1200 MWh Battery Storage Project
Luminate supported Capital Dynamics in establishing its development partnership with 8minute Solar Energy for the Eland solar-plus-storage facility. Upon completion, this 400 MWAC solar and 300 MW/1200 MWh energy storage project will provide record low-cost renewable energy under a long-term PPA with the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.
NextEra 20 MW Solar, 10 MW / 40 MWh Battery Storage Project
Luminate provided independent engineering and consulting services in support of the financing of NextEra’s Pinal solar + storage project in Arizona. This $60 million facility is Arizona’s largest combined solar + storage system and one of the largest solar/storage facilities financed in the US. Pinal is the first of three grid-scale battery storage projects planned to connect to SRP’s system.
