Grid integration provider Merit Controls announced that utility-scale solar and energy storage developer Clēnera will work to accelerate the deployment of the Merit Controls solution in the U.S. through their partnership. The partnership is unique in that Merit Controls provides a secure, programmatic, scalable, standardized and integrated approach to interconnection and control of U.S. renewable energy deployment.
“A new decade brings a new generation of technologies enabling a secure, reliable, valuable grid with clean energy access for all. Clēnera is seizing the opportunity to leverage its scale to realize this,” Tom Kuster, CEO of Merit Controls, said. “Merit Controls’ mission is to serve our clients via innovation, as evidenced by this deep, trusted partnership. Our capacity to innovate, while making the economics work for Clēnera’s extensive portfolio, enables our shared strategy and vision of reducing fossil fuel dependence and addressing climate change. We look forward to working together with Clēnera, and other developers, to proliferate our solutions and ultimately accelerate the clean energy transition.”
As Clēnera and Merit Controls work together to digitize the grid, they will enable economically efficient, dispatchable renewable energy generators and storage systems to replace fossil fuel use.
“In light of the demand for Clēnera’s renewable energy projects, we require a partner with a scalable, standardized controls solution. Merit Controls meets our needs and enables our rapid expansion in the North American market,” Clēnera co-founder and COO Adam Pishl, said. “We are confident in Merit’s team and their shared vision for the future of utility-scale solar and energy storage.”
