Battery Energy Storage
Mitigate the impact of renewable generation on the grid through efficient energy storage.
The volatility of the renewable energy sources necessitates the use of highly responsive tools to iron out frequency fluctuations and resulting network instability that could lead to operational disturbances in equipment connected to it.
Battery storage makes it possible to control fluctuations in frequency of the power system, to automate voltage regulation, optimize demand and supply, and provide reliable back-up in blackout or disaster situations. With the help of integrated grid energy storage, either utility- or third party-owned, energy companies will be able to provide multiple services to the grid.
Toshibas’ Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) is gaining traction with major utilities around the world that are aiming to optimize the impact of renewables on the grid in order to maintain high quality and reliable power delivery.
