Azelio signs a MoU with Trimark Associates for energy storage projects across North America
Swedish energy storage and transfer developers Azelio AB (formerly Cleanergy AB) has announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with US-based provider of SCADA, metering, and energy storage technology solutions Trimark Associates Inc. (Trimark) that covers a collaboration over 45 MW capacity of Azelio’s energy storage until 2025 on the North American market, where Trimark will be the system integrator.
Azelio’s introduction to the North American market continues with the signing of an MoU with system integrator Trimark. With its expertise in power system controls Trimark will integrate Azelio’s long-duration storage in energy projects. Azelio’s storage solution can be coupled to solar PV, wind, or any other energy source to cost-efficiently supply renewable power 24/7.
The first projects are targeting 150 kW in 2021, followed by 3 MW in 2022, 6 MW in 2023, 12 MW in 2024, and 24 MW in 2025. In addition to this MoU, the parties anticipate an extended project pipeline once the first projects are initiated.
At Azelio we are excited to work closely together with one of the industry’s most experienced companies. Trimark’s innovative approach to energy system controls will help us develop a fully integrated storage solution. It will contribute to improving resiliency and reliability for end-users, said Jonas Eklind CEO of Azelio.
Trimark is based in California, US, and offers a fully integrated portfolio of services, ranging from hardware and software products to field installation, integration, testing, and ongoing maintenance of power plants.
The company is contributing to “greening the grid”, supporting the reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. The aim of the collaboration with Azelio is to position Trimark as one of Azelio’s regional partners for the integration of Azelio’s long-duration storage in renewable energy projects within North America.
All of the Trimark team is excited about working with Azelio on their forward-looking technology. Long-duration energy storage is not only the vision of the California Control Area Operator, it also aligns with Trimark’s vison of Greening the Grid. Our developed Vantage control system has been successfully implemented for controlling Lithium-Ion storage systems. I am confident that Azelio’s Storage technology will also be effectively controlled with Vantage, said Mark J. Morosky, CEO of Trimark.
