On the grid, our Energy Storage Systems are able to operate as a peak-shaving application and Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) system. This application helps communities and companies put buffers in place for swiftly and vigorously accommodating electricity peaks, impurities and power failures. This means business continuity is guaranteed around the clock. We prefer linking our Energy Storage Systems to renewable energy solutions based on solar, wind and water. That way, economic progress and sustainability coincide for a cleaner future.
The fuel-savings and environmental gains are considerable. NOx and CO2 emissions reduced to little or nothing, and unpleasant odours and noise pollution are also diminished for employees, the environment, residents and the natural world. This means anyone, anywhere in the world can benefit from clean, safe and powerful energy thanks to our Blue Elephant® Energy Storage Systems.
On the grid: clean stability and certainty
We are becoming increasingly dependent on electricity, putting pressure on the capacity of most grids. This applies to prosperous countries and emerging countries alike, with examples of this including the continuing rise of electric cars and the increasing demand from production locations and communities. The demand for power from server parks and data centres is also undergoing considerable growth. Moreover, the grids in emerging countries in Africa, Asia and South America are also characterised by their increasing need for capacity, but likewise their regular outages.
Existing electricity networks are being increasingly burdened, experiencing unprecedented high peaks. This is leading to instability and power failures are becoming ever more frequent. For companies, this means loss of production and higher costs, since generators are required to run for additional hours, for instance.
Clean and powerful Energy Storage Systems
This rising demand for electricity requires a different way of storing energy. Simply expanding and extending the existing grid is not always possible technically or economically, meaning energy storage for stabilisation and in emergencies is essential. Fortunately, also on the rise is the realisation that storage must be achieved in a sustainable manner. Our Energy Storage Systems are a commercially economical and sustainable solution for temporary peak loads (peak-shaving application) and emergency power provision (UPS application). The clean energy from our Blue Elephant lithium polymer batteries is safe, powerful and reliable. Linked to the grid, it provides operational security, which means there is no need to use environmentally friendly generators requiring considerable maintenance, and you save on the cost of fossil fuels.
Linking sustainable energy sources
The great thing about our battery solutions is that besides being linked to the grid, they are perfectly compatible with local systems for solar, wind, hydro and biogas energy. The sustainable energy is generated locally and stored in our batteries. That way, it jointly forms a perfect supplement to the grid’s fluctuations and outages, and any production environment that has to be operational around the clock can have a reliable, clean and cost-effective energy supply.
