Battery energy storage is a proven resource for grid operators

Network Utilization

Changing generation resources and renewable intermittency causes transmission line congestion, which results in asset curtailment and re-dispatching.

Energy storage can be deployed quickly on the grid to increase transmission line capacity through energy shifting or n-1 contingency reserves.

System Stabilization

A growing share of inverter-fed resources and changing load profiles create new system stability issues for grid operators.

Energy storage with advanced grid forming controls supports grid stability and power system operation with complex applications, such as inertia, black start, oscillation damping control, and more.
