Energy Storage

Extending the Horizons of Clean Energy


The role of energy storage can be summed up in two words: grid empowerment. No matter how you consider the evolution of distributed energy, it’s clear that this technology will play an integral part in the growth of a clean energy ecosystem for decades to come.

At its heart, energy storage delivers flexibility, range and responsiveness to smart grids.

Thanks to its versatility, energy storage plays many roles in today’s smart grid applications. In one application, this technology can be harnessed to provide grid balancing services, offering a reliable and consistent flow of electricity to consumers.

Energy storage also smooths out variable generation from solar panels as weather systems pass overhead. Or, in another application, it provides the necessary security and independence required to operate microgrids.

Utilities across the nation are realizing the potential of this versatile technology and deploying it in unique ways. From community solar arrays to microgrids, customer-sited energy storage and electric vehicle charging stations, utilities and businesses are finding new and creative ways to harness this smart energy technology.
