energy storage system
GE Renewable Energy
Energy storage is an efficient and effective solution to store and use energy on demand, providing flexibility across the grid. Energy storage systems provide a wide range of technologies and approaches to manage power supplies, create a more stabilized energy infrastructure and lower the cost of energy for utility providers and consumers.
*Components of a Battery Storage System:
Energy storage systems are comprised of three main modules:
- The DC battery where energy is stored
- The AC power conversion where the energy is converted from AC to DC
- The control system that manages the operation of GE’s energy storage system
As a battery manufacturer, our team has a deep technical understanding of cells, thermal management and other key battery-related elements that helps us to configure the right DC battery technology to meet our customers' needs.
The AC block is based on GE’s Brilliance* MW inverters that demonstrate reliability and efficiency in thousands of wind turbines deployed around the world.
Our GE controls are based on Mark* VI technology, currently in use by approximately 30% of the world's power generation equipment and with hundreds of thousands of operating hours monitoring and controlling power plant systems.
