Never Again Without Energy
Increasingly Common and Affordable
The large-scale production of battery systems allows storage to take hold faster, guaranteeing higher levels of performance.
Toward the Energy Transition
With storage systems, renewables can shift gears, making the process of the energy transition faster and more ready for the future.
Storage allows for new services for electrical system security (static reserve, regulation of frequency, voltage and restarting), previously the exclusive terrain of conventional sources.
Frequently asked questions about battery storage systems
By 2050, nearly 50% of the electricity fed into the grid will be generated from renewable sources. However, their intermittent nature means that solutions must be found to match electricity production with demand. In this respect BESS (Battery Energy Storage Systems) are highly effective. They use batteries (mostly lithium-ion) to store energy and then release it as needed. Here are a series of answers to the main questions about these devices.
Frequently asked questions on energy storage in USA and Canada
As renewable energy continues to grow in the US and Canada, so does the demand to install utility-scale battery energy storage systems (BESS). The market’s demands for system flexibility combined with decreasing costs in battery technology is leading BESS to play a more important role than ever in the energy market. By 2023, an additional 3.6 GW of large scale battery storage is planned to be operational in the US.
