Change peak to relieve transformer stations
As there is an increase in electrical appliances (induction hobs, electrical vehicles, heat pumps) the demand for electric energy increases. A lot of these appliances are used simultaneously, which results in a higher peak in energy consumption. This demand peaks between 6 and 8 PM, causing transformer stations to be overloaded and grid congestion.
Our batteries move power peaks to earlier or later moments. In the event of the peak in power demand (when everyone is going to cook and charge their car) our battery provides additional power at the location of the transformer and lowers the power it must provide.
- Moves power peak
- Provides additional power
- Relieves transformer station
Store generated renewable energy
Due to the energy transition there is an increase in the generation of renewable energy. Such as solar parks, solar panels and wind turbines. At times, when the wind is blowing hard and/or the sun is shining fully, the energy grid in parts of the country cannot handle the power. As a result, it is not possible to use all generated energy. And so, windmills must be stopped and solar panels switched off.
To prevent curtailment of renewable energy, an empty battery is the solution. As soon as supply exceeds the demand, the battery stores the amount of excess energy to release this later.
- Prevents curtailment
- Stores excess energy
- Releases energy later
