Innovative solutions for renewable integration and grid stability

As the global need for electricity increases, so does the expectation for clean, reliable power. Utilities are under pressure from both governments and the public to reduce CO2 emissions by integrating renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar, into the grid. One of the major challenges is that renewable energy production can be unpredictable, making network operators hesitant to become dependent on elements they cannot control.

In parallel, networks are ageing and more decentralized, becoming less efficient and more congested as the quantity of energy circulating on the lines increases with the energy demand. Transmission System Operators (TSOs), Distribution Network Operators (DNOs/DSOs), and Independent Power Producers (IPPs) need innovative ways of improving the grid's flexibility, reliability and efficiency.

GE's Battery Energy Storage Solution (BESS) is a integrated turnkey offering that includes the battery system, power electronics, substation control, grid connection and network managements systems. GE's BESS is equipped with a power converter and real-time control software to efficiently match energy supply to demand. It stores surplus energy into a battery, and releases it into the grid when needed.

Key Benefits:

  • Connects with major types of battery technologies
  • Plug and play solution
  • Avoids extending AC substations and adds vital flexibility to networks
  • Improves efficiency and reliability of intermittent renewable energy sources

Applications:

  • Hybrid Grid Connection
  • Hybrid Renewables
  • Hybrid Electric Gas Turbines
