Fluence, the leading global energy storage technology, software and services provider, today announced that its A.I.-powered Trading Platform has been selected to provide optimization and market bidding services for Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s 182.5 MW, 730 MWh battery energy storage system in Moss Landing, Calif. Using artificial intelligence, advanced price forecasting, portfolio optimization and market bidding algorithms, the software will ensure the system is responding optimally to market and reliability needs in the California Independent System Operator wholesale market.

“This technology-agnostic software provides PG&E with a single tool that can optimize not only the Moss Landing project, but potentially entire portfolios of generation and storage resources to enhance affordability of resources. We are excited to work with PG&E to use advanced technology to improve the efficiency and reliability of the CAISO market and lower costs for California consumers.” The Fluence Digital team – formerly AMS, which was acquired by Fluence in 2020 – is the leading developer of A.I.-enabled optimized bidding software for grid-scale storage and generation assets.

The Trading Platform, which can be used to optimize a variety of energy resources in the CAISO market and in the Australian National Electricity Market, can increase revenue and operational efficiency for battery-based energy storage by 40-50 percent and revenue for standalone renewable energy assets by over 10 percent via optimized wholesale market bidding.
