Merchandise Mart, located in Chicago, USA, has installed a distributed energy storage technology system from Johnson Controls.

One of the world’s largest commercial buildings, Merchandise Mart selected Johnson Controls to enhance its energy storage capabilities in order to participate in advanced fast response programmes such as frequency regulation to adjust demand in response to changing conditions on the electric grid.

Johnson Controls’ Active Load Management coupled with distributed energy storage, which is being used by the Merchandise Mart, has the potential to reduce a facility’s annual electric spend up to 35%, its developers claim.

Encompassing 4.2 million square feet and hosting nearly 25,000 people each day, the Merchandise Mart identified the need to install a distributed energy storage system through its partnership with the US Environmental Defense Fund Climate Corps Program.
