The Storage

Within Microgrids, energy storage systems provide much more than just a supportive source of power.

At the utility level, they serve other important functions, such as smoothing intermittent PV power flow, regulate frequency and voltage control.

At the consumer level, they can boost the supply at peak periods (peak shaving) and offer important backup in case of emergencies as described above.

A Microgrid can then engage its stored energy while waiting for the other source of energy to come back online, keeping the lights on.
