Why energy storage systems are so important
The global energy landscape is undergoing a profound transformation from relying on traditional fossil energy to pursuing clean and efficient energy. Regardless of whether it is from the total structure of power energy, or from the structure of installed capacity, and the composition of unit power generation costs, clean energy has developed rapidly and has become an important force in the world to accelerate the reform of the energy sector.
As the core support for the development of new energy, the energy storage industry and energy storage technology cover the needs of power sources, power grids, users, and socialized functional energy storage facilities.
The available capacity of a home energy storage system is generally a few kWh or more than a dozen kWh. The capacity of industrial energy storage systems can reach tens, hundreds, or even thousands of MWh.
It can be said that energy storage runs through all the links of new energy development and utilization. It is the core technology of energy conversion and buffering, peak shaving and efficiency improvement, transmission and scheduling, management and application, and it is also the main driving force for the development of emerging industries such as electric vehicles. Strategic value and brilliant industrial prospects.
Taking the power grid as an example, energy storage can provide emergency power, reduce losses caused by various power quality problems, and improve grid safety and reliability; it can reduce the peak-to-valley difference of the grid, improve equipment utilization and grid stability; it can stabilize wind and solar energy Wait for the output power of intermittent renewable energy power generation to improve the capacity of the grid. Energy storage is also an important technical condition for smart grids to achieve two-way interaction of capabilities. Only with the support of reliable energy storage can smart grids be truly realized.
