Energy storage at Substations allows greater utilization and flexibility – especially at existing facilities. Storage is also essential for integrating renewable energy and managing its distribution.
The Aestus system is compact and highly efficient, and can provide up to 20 MWh+ of storage in various configurations.
Benefits of energy storage for Substations:
- On-site storage flexibility
- Improved service reliability
- Back-up power
- Renewable energy integration
Peaker Plant Replacement
As an alternative, or supplement, to Peaker Plants, Aestus Energy Storage can provide the same increased capacity – to meet peak demand – at a lower total cost.
The system is also safer – an important consideration in urban areas. It has none of the fire hazard or chemical issues found in battery storage.
Aestus is scalable, and the modular installation process makes it possible to complete critical projects faster.
The distinct advantages of Aestus make it a better choice for using energy storage to eliminate congestion and distribution issues of Transmission Systems.
Scalable to up to grid-level needs, the Aestus system is a cost-effective solution – allowing transmission projects to meet new requirements without major investment in grid infrastructure.
Benefits of energy storage for Transmission:
- Increased utilization and resiliency
- Renewable energy integration
- Backflow prevention
Renewable Energy projects require storage – to provide predictable quality of electricity for the grid, and to make the energy available when needed. Storage allows improvements in the processes of smoothing, ramping, firming, and shifting.
With many advantages over battery storage, Aestus increases the value of a renewable energy project in terms of costs and its ability to integrate effectively into local and regional networks.
Benefits of energy storage for Renewable Energy:
- Optimized grid interconnection
- Management of supply and ramping issues
- Control of release periods
Microgrids depend on energy storage to support reliability and stability of independent power systems. It’s also critical for emergency back-up.
Aestus is a smarter choice for Microgrids in any industry: longer use-life, longer duration, safer, and a significantly better ROI.
Benefits of energy storage for Microgrids:
- For dedicated/connected and off-grid systems
- Ramping support to meet peak demand
- Self-leveling power output
- Back-up power supply
Island Grids require an efficient and cost-effective energy storage system – to integrate renewable energy, and to replace current and expensive solutions using diesel fuel.
The Aestus low-cost and energy-dense alternative is ideal for Island Grids – sustainable, reliable and able to meet large-scale storage capacity. Implementation is also easy, with a modular and compact system.
Additionally, Aestus can provide the longer discharge durations needed by Island Grids – up to 10 hours.
Commercial & Industrial
More industries and commercial operations see benefits in energy storage – to provide critical back-up power, control self-generated wind and solar, and reduce peak-demand energy costs.
Aestus can provide Behind-the-Meter energy storage cost-effectively, and more safely, sustainably, and reliably.
The Aestus system can be scaled-up in size to meet future needs, and is safe enough to place within a building facility.
Military / Security
Aestus Energy Storage meets all the strict requirements for defense-based and emergency installations.
The heat-to-power system is low-noise, long-life, and reliable – providing energy-dense and compact storage capacity, scalable up to 20 MWh+. Higher-efficiency reduces use of diesel fuel and extends renewable energy sources.
The Aestus system is also free of the degradation, charging, and safety issues of battery systems – including no dangers from fire or potential explosion.
