Energy Storage Systems
Energy storage plays an important part of energy generation and distribution systems, helping to smooth out the intermittency of renewable generation systems and in some cases providing a level of power factor correction, thus ensuring a smooth capable supply for on-grid and off-grid energy networks. An intelligent energy storage system enables the development of smart grids and intelligent appliances allowing demand to be varied according to the availability and cost of power throughout the day, as well as improving the up-time of otherwise intermittent renewable energy systems. For example, the wind doesn’t blow all the time, so it’s important to be able to store excess electricity generated when it’s windy to even out the supply. The same applies to wave and solar power for example. Renewable energy sources do not necessarily produce power when electricity is needed.
