Convergent Energy and Power has won a contract from Ford to meet its power needs at a plant Essex Engine Plant in Windsor, Ontario with a 4 MW / 8MWh battery energy storage system (BESS).

At the Essex Engine Plant, Convergent’s AI-powered energy storage system reduces the facility’s electricity consumption, reducing its costs and carbon footprint while supporting the long-term sustainability of the grid.

“The battery storage system provided by Convergent Energy and Power is a strong example of how batteries can support the auto industry at the plant level while also supporting the electric grid serving Ford and the surrounding community,” said Thomas Reeber, Plant Manager at the Ford Essex Plant.

Convergent has over $500 million invested in or committed to projects in operation or under development across North America.
