Energy storage is the key to integrating renewable energy into the grid
It is essential to guaranteeing energy stability and reliability to families, communities and companies in the future.
Variable renewable energy resources form a challenge for both power generators and grid operators. While the first ideally seeks to provide power at peak times when the price is high, the latter needs to ensure grid stability.
Energy storage systems allow for greater control and flexibility of electricity usage, enabling energy created by renewables to be stored during periods of low demand or low cost to be utilised in periods of high demand or high cost.
An energy storage system can save cost and improves grid stability at the same time, smartly addressing the increasingly strict rules imposed by grid operators for ramp rates and forecasting, scheduling and dispatch.
