Energy Storage Containers in Chicago

ottobre 6, 2014

Here an example of mass production of lithium ion cells for energy storage facilities under development by Glidepath. Three 20-megawatthour facilities would be located in McHenry, Joliet and West Chicago.

Each facility will be made up of nine containers that house the battery power components. They will sit on about 4 acres and work with traditional power plants by switching from charge to discharge mode as needed to provide customers with a stable power supply.


The containers are similar in size to a storage or shipping container. They house all of the racks collecting lithium ion batteries. They are equipped with a climate control system and monitors to track performance.


Inside each container holds 20 to 30 energy storage racks stacked much like a computer server.


The container hold about 80,000 lithium-based batteries, each battery are about 1.5 times the length of a D cell battery.
