We are currently experiencing a revolution that has changed the way energy is generated, stored and consumed. Our Battery Solutions model is moving towards a decentralized system, in which each consumer will be able to generate the energy they need.
Furthermore, developing a more sustainable electricity grid means that accurate management of energy consumption is a top priority for large and small companies in the industrial sector, as well as for local communities and individuals.
The Industry 4.0 business paradigm reflects the latest trends in decarbonization, electrification, digitization and urbanization. In fact, it is estimated that in 2040 global energy demand will increase by 60%, while by 2050 almost 50% of the installed capacity worldwide will come from renewables.
One of the questions about this change has been how to store the surplus electricity produced by renewable energy sources, such as solar panels, so that it can be used even when the sun is not shining. This is where energy storage solutions come into play , as they allow the energy generated by different sources to be stored and used when it is most needed, as well as ensuring continuity in the event of blackouts or other emergency situations.
How Many Type Of Storage Battery System Are?
There are two types of Battery storage systems : In Front of the Meter , Front of the Meter (FtM), and Behind the Meter , Behind the Meter (BtM). FtM systems are directly connected to the electrical grid and are generally used to provide network services. In contrast, BtM systems are located “behind the counter” of industrial facilities and are often smaller. These systems can provide energy to the grid (if the regulatory framework allows it) but, above all, they can cushion costs and help improve the quality of the local energy supply.
Energy can be stored in different ways: chemical, potential, gravitational or electrical, thermal, and kinetic. Historically, hydroelectric pumping stations have been the main energy storage system. However, since most of the places that lend themselves to it are already in use, new solutions are needed.
Currently the most promising technology for industrial and network applications is battery electrochemical storage . Over the last decade, lithium-ion batteries have covered a wide range of storage applications ranging from a few kW to hundreds of MW and provide power for just a few minutes or for many hours of continuous supply.
Lithium-ion battery systems are made up of several elements: battery cells assembled in modules; racks of batteries that connect these modules to obtain the desired DC current; a containerized battery system formed by different racks connected in parallel; a voltage conversion system to transform the DC output current of the battery into AC output voltage with mains voltage; and a customizable control system that can range from basic levels to check parameters, such as temperature and voltage, to more complex applications that guarantee a higher level of more intelligent control, for example, to optimize the economic part of a storage management system .
What Company Are Focused On Storage Battery System?
One company that has focused on lithium-ion battery storage is JPAC Batteries. Its portfolio of value-added storage solutions includes projects of all sizes in Australia, serving a wide variety of industries and types of customers.
JPAC Batteries has created its own system - the Software Platform for the Optimization of Distributed Energy Sources , known as DER.OS - to monitor and optimize the customer's energy consumption and distributed generation resources, including storage systems, all in real time. DER.OS can also add the energy management of multiple facilities, creating a virtual power plant that operates more efficiently to multiply savings and profits.
What Are Effective Solution Of Storage Batteries?
This is just one part of the JPAC Batteries solutions ecosystem, a one-stop shop for credible, established and innovative systems. An independent storage system allows customers to take advantage of variations in the price of energy, storing it when it is cheap and using it when it is most convenient for them economically or when there is a cut in the grid, for example. The system can be combined with a solar panel installation to generate a clean, renewable, battery-regulated energy supply which, if connected to the grid, can become a source of income. But it can also be combined with a diesel standby generator in a microgrid system, an insurance policy against outages.
JPAC Batteries also works in the field of electric mobility with the installation of battery storage systems that guarantee a more efficient recharging process for fleets of electric business vehicles.
