Xtreme Power, an integrated power management and energy storage solutions provider, has unveiled its new 1 MW, 60-minute system for Texas' Center for the Commercialization of Electric Technologies (CCET).

According to Xtreme Power, the project marks the first time the company's PEAK Series system has used lithium-ion batteries from Samsung SDI - building on a partnership that began earlier this year.

The CCET project in Lubbock, Texas, is a collaborative research and development consortium of state university research centers, energy utilities and electric industry leaders, including institutions such as Texas Tech University, the Southern Plains Electric Cooperative and Group NIRE.

Xtreme says the CCET system will be used to demonstrate energy storage applications, including renewables integration and grid support service. The CCET project is included in a U.S. Department of Energy smart grid demonstration that analyzes the benefits of using energy storage for wind energy integration.
