Containerised Li-ion battery storage systems are considered the Swiss army pocket knife for the energy transition. Whether for supplying primary control reserve, peak shaving, reactive power compensation at grid level or optimising grid fees and providing emergency power, battery systems in the MW range provide a wide spectrum of potential applications for energy suppliers and industrial enterprises.
The only weakness of batteries is their limited storage capacity. Entelios solves this issue for its customers with own generating capacities by applying Entelios hybrid power plant technology:
- Batteries can follow demand quickly and precisely, but their supply duration is restricted by their limited capacity.
- Generating plants (e.g. gas power plants) have almost unlimited supply capacity thanks to their constant fuel supply, but are limited in their dynamism and precision
- Hybrid power plants, comprising a dual system of batteries and generating installations, unite the advantages of both technologies in that each side balances out the weaknesses of the other, providing optimum efficiency.
The current and future markets for flexibility need increasing precision and dynamism. Entelios‘ hybrid power plant technology can bring in particular older, less dynamic power plants up to speed, enabling them to continue to participate profitably in the flexibility markets in future.
Entelios works with interested clients in industry and the energy supply sector from the initial idea all the way to the implementation: from preparing the concept and developing the project jointly with experienced partners, up to the pre-qualification stage and finally, to profitable commercialisation. If you are interested in a non-binding analysis and concept preparation for batteries or hybrid power plants, please contact our consultants.
