Energy storage works by capturing electricity produced by both renewable and non-renewable resources and storing it for discharge when required. The solution allows users to come off the grid and switch to stored electricity, at a time most beneficial, giving greater flexibility and control of electrical usage.
At times of unexpected increases in demand on the grid, energy storage can be used to discharge power back to the electrical supply network very quickly to provide additional supply to help meet demand. By businesses contributing to this process of balancing the demand it alleviates the pressure from the grid and for this assistance contracts are offered.
Driven by advances in technology, the traditional model of electricity provision is being replaced by a smart, flexible energy smart grid powered by energy storage, demand side response and inter-connectivity.
eNERGY One-stop solution at grid level, energy storage reduces stress on the electrical network infrastructure, increases the proportion of renewable on the grid and increases reliability of renewable generation. It also provides efficient demand balancing options for the grid and reduces the need for backup demand generation.
