Battery storage, or battery energy storage systems (BESS), are devices that enable energy from renewables, like solar and wind, to be stored and then released when customers need power most.
As the world shifts toward cleaner and more sustainable sources of energy, battery energy storage systems are becoming an increasingly important part of the energy mix. We will explore the benefits of battery energy storage systems and how Northfield Automation Systems can help customers scale up their new battery energy storage technologies.
Sustainable & Stable
Battery energy storage systems are a crucial component of the renewable energy landscape, allowing excess energy generated by sustainable means to be stored for use during times when demand is high, or when there is a temporary drop in renewable energy production. This means that battery energy storage systems can help to stabilize the electricity grid, making it more reliable and reducing the need for fossil fuel-powered backup generators.
Energy storage systems are also being developed that use innovative technologies like flow batteries and compressed air storage. These systems are still in the early stages of development but show great promise for the future of energy storage.
Reducing Carbon Emissions
In addition to the benefits of stabilizing the electricity grid, battery energy storage systems can also help to reduce carbon emissions. By storing excess renewable energy, energy storage systems can help to reduce reliance on fossil fuels.
With the development of new technologies, like solar battery storage systems and flow batteries, energy storage systems are becoming more efficient and effective than ever before. As we continue to shift toward a cleaner and more sustainable energy future, battery energy storage systems will undoubtedly play a crucial role in achieving this goal.
