Battery Energy Storage
Innovative and efficient solution for renewable integration and grid stability
As the global need for electricity increases, so does the expectation for clean, reliable power. Utilities are under pressure from both governments and the public to reduce CO2 emissions by integrating renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar, into the grid. One of the major challenges is that renewable energy production can be unpredictable, making network operators hesitant to become dependent on elements they cannot control.
In parallel, networks are ageing and more decentralized, becoming less efficient and more congested as the quantity of energy circulating on the lines increases with the energy demand. Both TSOs and DSOs need innovative ways of improving the grid’s flexibility, reliability and efficiency.
GE’s MaxSine™ eStorage is a fully integrated turnkey solution including battery systems, power electronics, substation control, grid connection and network managements systems. MaxSine eStorage is equipped with a power converter and real-time control software to efficiently match energy supply to demand. It stores surplus energy into a battery, and releases it into the grid when needed.
