How to keep your energy storage system flexible in times of changing market conditions

This webinar explored:

  • Three tactics that ESS operators can deploy to remain flexible: specifying an ESS solution that can adapt to changing operational profiles; scalability to increase energy and power over time; and securing guarantees that are flexible enough to cover your ESS as its operation pattern evolves
  • Saft’s experience of utility-scale ESS installations to show how operators can implement these solutions
  • Key factors providing certainty in the operational capabilities and limits of an ESS and power conversion equipment working in unison. Flexible performance requires a good understanding and control of interdependent performance factors such as available State of Charge (SOC) range, power over lifetime, energy throughput and energy efficiency
  • The technical challenge in combining new and existing strings of batteries and how to achieve this with electronic control
  • The role of system modelling to anticipate the ageing of batteries in the field and the use of remote monitoring to evaluate lifetime performance
  • The design philosophy behind France’s largest battery energy storage project providing 25 MWh energy storage capacity and 25 MW power
  • How Saft has configured the ESS to respond to different use cases during its life
