DOSSIER ENERGY STORAGE
Stationary energy storage systems
To reduce our carbon footprint by electrifying society, massive deployment of renewable energy sources has become mandatory. This requires grid-tied energy storage system to balance energy production and consumption demands, to help grid stability.
Here are some highlights:
- Solar micro-inverters - using wide band gap semiconductors to optimize their design
- A second life for EV batteries – maximizing their utilization by assembling them into reconfigurable battery systems
- Using carbon-ion supercapacitors – with a practical method of achieving large-scale, high longevity and high power density energy storage
- Building safety and reliability into battery energy storage systems - from initial design and creation, through manufacturing and operational life, to end-of-life recycling.
