An energy storage system enables you to manage when and how your energy is used.
Energy Storage Systems (ESS) have emerged as a promising, versatile technology that can provide solutions to many electric-grid challenges. Without the ability to store large amounts of energy, conventional power systems have been reliant on matching supply and demand in real-time. However, with recent advances in storage technology and significant cost reductions, energy storage has never been simpler.
There are a wide-variety of applications for energy storage, including:
- Electric Bill Management
- Consumption of Onsite Generation
- Demand Response
- Backup Power/Microgrid Support
- Ancillary Services
Advanced energy storage systems enable users to store excess energy to be used at a later time. The systems are rechargeable and allow for electrochemical, mechanical, thermal and solar energy storage.
