Elevate Renewables is developing battery-energy storage systems (BESS) within existing, aging infrastructure and brownfield sites — areas of land that are abandoned, idle or underused.
Traditional energy infrastructure has relied heavily on thermal generation, resulting in environmental and economic challenges. However, with increasing concerns about climate change and the politicization of fossil fuels, the need for renewable-energy sources has become imperative. Elevate Renewables recognizes this urgency and aims to leverage battery storage integration and brownfield site repurposing as key strategies to accelerate the transition to a decarbonized economy while balancing reliability.
Developing utility-scale battery energy storage systems at existing power plants and brownfield locations offers several significant advantages. Firstly, colocating at existing power plants for energy storage minimizes the need for new land and infrastructure, reducing the environmenta
