Hecate Grid
Hecate Grid is a utility-scale electricity storage project developer, owner, and operator. It was founded by U.S. based renewable energy company Hecate Energy, and InfraRed Capital Partners, a UK based infrastructure fund. Grid storage is a rapidly growing component of the electric power grid, and as penetration of renewable energy generation continues to increase, grid-tied electricity storage will increasingly be used to balance intermittent resources like wind and solar power generation. Hecate Grid develops, owns, and operates a growing network of utility-scale electricity storage projects at key nodes in select electricity markets and is developing proprietary trading strategies and algorithms.
