Grid Applications

Reliable and efficient energy storage is the future of grid
  • Power Generation
  • Securing alternative power sources is becoming a huge issue in many countries. The topic is being raised due to the finite nature of non-renewable energy sources and the increasingly pronounced effects of climate change. Wind energy can make a difference. Due to the unpredictable nature of wind, electric power generated by wind turbines is highly erratic and may affect both the power quality and the planning of power systems. Ultracapacitor energy storage systems may play an important role in wind power applications by controlling wind power plant output and providing ancillary services to the power system.

  • Transmission & Distribution
  • Efficient transfer of electrical energy — from generating power plants to electrical substations and then to consumers — has to be efficient and reliable. Blackouts can happen anytime without warning. Some of the largest companies in the world have suffered losses of up to hundreds of millions of dollars due to disturbances lasting for a few seconds or even milliseconds. Ultracapacitor energy storage can be the ideal solution for different power quality issues, including magnitude, flicker, dip, swell, and interruption events, because of their ability to react practically instantly.

  • Industrial (>500kW)
  • Blackouts can happen anytime without warning.  We can currently offer ultracapacitor-based energy storage solutions either by supplying ultracapacitor modules to be integrated into a larger system or to be delivered as a large turn-key solution in partnership with System Integrators. The grid systems can reach high levels of complexity and become quite daunting to control. Within them, there can be an array of different applications with various means of energy storage associated to them. Ultracapacitors as an energy storage medium can provide big benefits such as instant response to demand surge and improved energy delivery quality.
