W Power, LLC & Wellhead Energy, LLC Selected as 2021 S&P Global Platts Global Energy Awards Finalist
Winners to be Announced December 9th at a black-tie gala in New York City
NEW YORK (September 23, 2021) – W Power, LLC & Wellhead Energy, LLC have been named finalists in the 23rd annual S&P Global Platts Global Energy Awards. The 2021 Finalists were announced today by program host S&P Global Platts, the leading global provider of energy and commodities information and spot market benchmarks.
W Power, LLC and Wellhead Energy, LLC were nominated for Commercial Technology of the Year for their state-of-the-art hybrid energy system in Stanton, California.
Often described as “the Oscars of the energy industry”, the S&P Global Platts Global Energy Awards achievements in innovation, leadership, and company performance in 22 categories spanning the entire energy complex.
The Stanton Energy Reliability Center (SERC) project is a new hybrid energy storage system consisting of two GE LM6000 GTs, each integrated with a 10MW/4.3MWh of battery. EGT® refers to the Hybrid technology jointly developed by Wellhead and GE. This technology previously received awards for retrofitting two existing SCE LM6000 peakers from: SCAQMD Innovative Clean Air Technology, Power Magazine, ESNA and the EEI.
SERC is the first green-field EGT® deployment of Hybrid technology. SERC will provide 118 MW of hybrid energy, 98 MW from the GTs and 20 MW from the tightly integrated battery system. SERC provides unique reliability benefits that neither turbines nor batteries can provide on their own. The Hybrid project is highly flexible which allowed it to be deployed in an exceptionally narrow and challenging Southern California site.
Jenny Salinas, Vice President, Marketing, S&P Global Platts commented, “This year’s complement of 196 finalists truly indicates the outstanding innovation and supreme leadership occurring in so many sectors across our industries. Companies are tackling critical issues such as emissions control, digitization, investment to improve the quality of life, and so much more. We are proud to honor these individuals and companies on their achievements.”
The Global Energy Awards’ independent panel of esteemed judges will select winners for each award category from the corresponding group of finalists. The ‘Energy Company of the Year’ will be chosen from the entire list of finalists.
The ‘Climate Leader Award-Power’ is unique as its finalists and winner are selected by S&P Global Sustainable1, which measures the public disclosure of global power companies included in the S&P Global LargeMidcap Index and the annual research engagement of S&P Global Trucost.
The winners will be announced at the S&P Global Platts Global Energy Awards black-tie gala on December 9th in New York City. This year, the event will be held in person at Cipriani Wall Street and will follow all Covid related guidelines. Expected attendance is 400 energy, financial, and business executives.
