Why Energy Storage
Energy Storage is a crucial enabler for the energy transition as the world’s electricity systems move away from baseload coal and gas, to intermittent solar and wind. The ability to store energy allows us to bridge the gap from when renewable energy is generated to when it is needed. In addition to energy shifting, batteries are also highly efficient at supporting the grid during times of stress, thus enhancing frequency control and general grid reliability.
