Grid & UPS Energy Storage

The evolution of electricity supply, demand, efficiency and reliability is driving significant infrastructural and operational improvements of electrical grids worldwide.

Grid energy storage systems store and release power when and where it is required within grids to maintain their stability and maximize efficiency. Energy storage systems can balance and increase grid flexibility when managing multiple energy generation resources, integrating a high level of intermittent renewable energy, or operating a micro grid. AEP Hybrid Power ultracapacitor modules provide cost-effective and reliable instantaneous power. The long life, high power and superior charge/discharge cycling of ultracapacitors make them the ideal energy storage solution for utility scale, microgrid, or commercial applications.

Ultracapacitors can be used as a standalone solution or in combination with other energy storage technologies such as batteries. By combining two complementary technologies, ultracapacitors can extend battery life and reduce overall operating cost, providing fast response as well as backup capacity. With ultracapacitors, it is easy to design scalable systems with lifetimes of up to a million charge/discharge cycles at 100% depth of discharge.
