eCAMION-Toronto Hydro Pole Mounted Lithium-Ion Battery ES System

Toronto Hydro, Ryerson University's Centre for Urban Energy and eCAMION have collaborated to demonstrate a pole-mounted energy storage system used to facilitate electric vehicle integration and improve grid stability/reliability.

In this unique project, eCamion’s modular storage solution, mounted on an electricity pole in an urban environment where space is at a premium, has been combined with a smart controller developed by Ryerson researchers and students that communicates with downstream smart meters of connected residences.

The energy storage unit employs lithium-ion batteries which charge during off-peak hours and discharge during peak hours. The province is supporting the project through the Ministry of Energy’s $50-million Smart Grid Fund initiative.
