Weikko Wirta, AES Southland Director of Operations and Vice President of Southland Energy, walks inside a building with the AES Alamitos Battery Energy Storage System, which provides stored renewable energy to supply electricity during peak demand periods, in Long Beach, California on September 16, 2022. - Dire predictions of blackouts in California during this month's fearsome heat wave never came to pass, with technology -- and a dose of community spirit -- helping the creaking electricity grid through its most testing period ever. "Batteries stepped in and... played a critical role" in rebalancing electricity demand, said Weikko Wirta, director of operations at AES Southland, a 400 megawatt installation at Long Beach near Los Angeles.
