Energy Storage - GE’s Reservoir Solutions

Energy storage: Unlock new business value with flexible, modular battery solutions

The electricity industry is facing new challenges that have not been seen in 100 years. As consumers become active power producers who demand clean, reliable, and affordable power, the transforming grid needs innovative technical solutions that can unlock new business models and revenue streams.

Why energy storage?
Challenges and opportunities
This change to energy generation and consumption is being driven by three powerful trends: the arrival of increasingly affordable distributed power technologies, decarbonization of the world’s electricity network through the introduction of more renewable energy sources, and the emergence of digital technologies.
decarbonization
Decarbonization
The rapid deployment of low-carbon technologies such as wind and solar is making it increasingly difficult to forecast variable generation, creating challenges around grid stability, congestion and market volatility.
Digitization
Digitization
More connected devices and smart sensors create fast decision-making on dynamic and nodal prices, while intelligent control systems and internet-enabled software optimize power plants and the grid.
Decentralization
Decentralization
The growing penetration of distributed energy resources, including renewables and storage, is creating more “prosumers” and increasing distribution grid complexity.

How can energy storage help me?

A battery energy storage solution offers new application flexibility and unlocks new business value across the energy value chain, from conventional power generation, transmission & distribution, and renewable power, to industrial and commercial sectors. Energy storage supports diverse applications including firming renewable production, stabilizing the electrical grid, controlling energy flow, optimizing asset operation and creating new revenue.

For renewables developers, energy storage offers a faster alternative to a PPA, which may have a lead time of a year or more. For utilities, energy storage offers relevancy with increased distributed generation.

Energy storage can help you increase the dispatchability and predictability of renewables, helping to meet strict code and connection permits.
