SUSI to provide $94.3 million to back Canadian storage projects


The SUSI Energy Storage Fund will provide financing to NRStor C&I, a subsidiary of Toronto-based NRStor that specializes in storage solutions. The facility will include several unspecified lithium ion battery suppliers, SUSI Partners said.

The fund will be used to support behind-the-meter services for undisclosed Commercial and Industrial (C&I) customers, backed by lithium-ion technology. NRStor C&I will help to bring down grid-wide peaks and smooth out intraday fluctuations related to renewable energy assets, according to an online statement.

Annette Verschuren, chair and chief executive of NRStor, hailed the deal as a “major milestone in the development and expansion of the Canadian energy storage market.” Verschuren added that NRStor C&I will now be able to expedite the deployment of behind-the-meter energy storage solutions for commercial, industrial and institutional customers.
