Challenges and opportunities
Why energy storage?
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.

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.
