Energy Storage Systems
Stationary batteries, whether large industrial-scale or decentralised home devices, serve as important factors in storing and distributing power for both individual consumers and entire power systems. Such applications are vastly improved using Talga’s green, fast charging and long-lasting anode products.
Keeping the lights on
Fundamental to the shift to renewable energy is a shift in how we think about power distribution. Energy storage and distribution systems allow us to make the best use of the Earth’s vast renewable energy resources.
And we are making use of these resources; renewable energy usage is at an all-time high in the EU. Between 2004 and 2019, the EU’s share of renewable energy doubled to 19.7%, and the goal is to reach 32% by 2030. But as the world shifts from its dependency on fossil fuels and towards renewable energy, new challenges emerge in these systems.
Many forms of renewable energy are intermittent by nature. You can’t generate solar energy at night, and a windless day means motionless wind turbines. Relying on renewable energy alone without adequate storage support could lead to energy distribution issues. However, widespread use of batteries will allow for discharge of renewable energy when the sun isn’t shining, and the wind isn’t blowing.
