Energy storage is critical to decarbonizing the power system and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It's also essential to build resilient, reliable, and affordable electricity grids that can handle the variable nature of renewable energy sources like wind and solar. There are different energy storage solutions available today, but lithium-ion batteries are currently the technology of choice due to their cost-effectiveness and high efficiency.
What are BESS?
Battery Energy Storage Systems, or BESS, are rechargeable batteries that can store energy from different sources and discharge it when needed. BESS consist of one or more batteries and can be used to balance the electric grid, provide backup power and improve grid stability.
What are the benefits of BESS?Battery storage systems offer many benefits over traditional grid storage solutions, such as:
From renewable energy producers, conventional thermal power plant operators and grid operators to industrial electricity consumers, and offshore drilling platforms or vessels, BESS offer highly efficient and cost-effective energy storage solutions.
With BESS, you can even generate new revenue streams as it allows energy arbitrage or directly reduce your electricity bill via peak shaving.
