Energy Storage

Battery storage systems are emerging as one of the key solutions to effectively integrate high shares of solar and wind renewables in power systems worldwide. A recent analysis from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) illustrates how electricity storage technologies can be used for a variety of applications in the power sector, from e-mobility and behind-the-meter applications to utility-scale use cases.

Strategically placed energy storage systems throughout the electrical grid can increase the operational performance and reliability of the utility network, better integrate alternative energy sources, balance electricity supply and demand, and ensure that energy is readily available when primary power sources are interrupted. Energy storage benefits the entire power value chain, from generation, transmission and distribution, all the way to users.
