EnerSys, the global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications, announced today that it is entering the large-scale energy storage market with its new OptiGrid Stored Energy Solutions, a new turnkey megawatt hour scale energy management system for utilities and large industrial applications.
Power grid stabilization is a prime concern among today’s utilities, as they balance supply and demand and cope with issues such as voltage regulation, frequency regulation, peak management and renewable power integration.
In addition, power disturbances are a major cost and concern today for both utilities and industry. It is estimated that the U.S. economy is losing between $119 billion and $188 billion annually from power outages and power quality issues.
Utilities and industrial users are increasingly discovering that large energy storage systems, such as OptiGrid Stored Energy Solutions, are effective tools for power grid stabilization.
A flexible, turnkey, utility-scale capacity optimization system, OptiGrid Stored Energy Solutions is available in the full range of battery chemistries offered by EnerSys, making it one of the most comprehensive, large-scale energy storage systems available globally.
