ESS’s make renewable energy more available, more reliable and more attractive. Given the source & nature of renewable energy be it solar, wind, etc., generation could vary depending on climatic conditions. Renewable energy generated at a point in time in all probability will not be consumed at the same time. Thus storage is a vital aspect to make renewable energy economics viable.
ESS could play a critical role in regulating how energy is stored and consumed and at different points of time depending on power tariff regulations in place. ESS allows the operator to regulate off-grid and on-grid applications seamlessly.
Where renewable energy generation is distributed and off grid ESS provides a great opportunity to minimize the cost and environmental impact of setting up conventional power transmission systems in remote areas and inhospitable terrains.
