Energy storage evens out peaks and provides stability
The transition to renewable energy gives the world the opportunity to rapidly phase out fossil fuels and their enormous climate impact. Production capacity of renewable energy sources varies over time, depending on weather and wind. An effective way to handle this is battery energy storage. This way, the peaks in energy production can be balanced, while at the same time the battery storage contributes to the critical stability in the electricity grid. Ingrid Capacity builds the necessary infrastructure for large-scale energy storage.
The technology for energy storage and electricity distribution is both challenging and complex, but the basic principles are easy to understand. A strategically located battery energy storage will support both the local society and the national grid. Ingrid Capacity uses both second life batteries and new batteries, depending on site optimization.
- Increasing the amount of renewable energy in the power grid poses a big challenge to power system stability
- There is both a high demand for and a shortage of energy storage that can balance and contribute to stability in the electricity grid
- Municipalities’ local electricity networks can be supported with peak shaving, which means that more homes and businesses can be developed without the need to rebuild the electricity grid
- Safe and reliable electricity supply is a cornerstone of Swedish security policy and defense ability
- Significantly reduced costs for battery storage technology
