What is a battery?

A battery stores energy and converts it into electrical energy. Batteries can help meet peaks and troughs in electricity demand, making the power grid more stable. Batteries come in different sizes and capacities, from small cells in electronic devices to large energy storage systems that support businesses and keep energy supplies stable.

Battery solutions, for whom?

Developers and investors in a battery
  • Financial return: potential for high returns on battery investments
  • Sustainable investment: contributing to the transition to renewable energy

  • What is congestion?

    To become more sustainable, many companies have begun to electrify their processes, this creates capacity problems in the power grid, often referred to as congestion. Effective methods of energy storage and flexible adjustments to generation are crucial to reducing congestion and ensuring a reliable energy supply. These approaches are necessary not only for the current grid, but also for the future stability and sustainability of the power grid.
