We create innovative supply chain solutions for suppliers and distributors of energy storage systems (ESS) in the residential, commercial and utilities segments.
Our energy storage supply chain programs feature innovative warehousing and inventory management services designed to help energy storage industry participants broaden their market reach and gain a competitive advantage through improved cash flow and working capital optimization.
Modern commercial and residential energy storage systems are built on user-friendly, AI-enabled software platforms designed to deliver superior energy efficiency and flexibility.
By storing electricity for instant access during peak hours and grid outages, they enable home- and business owners to get the most out of their solar installations while reducing their reliance on the grid.
What are Energy Storage Systems?
Energy storage is the capture of energy produced at one time for use at a later time to reduce imbalances between energy demand and energy production.
Energy storage systems provide a wide array of technological approaches to managing our power supply in order to create a more resilient energy infrastructure and bring cost savings to utilities and consumers.
Why is Energy Storage Important?
Traditional energy sources – like coal and natural gas power plants – have to be turned on and off as demand fluctuates, and are almost never operating at peak performance. This means that energy not only costs more, but pollutes more, than is necessary to meet our energy needs.
Wind and solar energy sources are intermittent in nature, producing energy only under certain conditions. By storing the energy produced and delivering it on demand, these clean technologies can continue to power our grid even when the sun has set and the air is still – leveling out jumps in output to create a continuous, reliable stream of power throughout the day.
But warehousing energy from diverse resources for use at a different time is only one of the many applications of energy storage. Storage technologies also improve the quality of power through frequency regulation, allows companies to produce power when it is cheapest and most efficient, and provide an uninterruptible source of power for critical infrastructure and services.
Energy Storage Benefits
Beyond enabling the increased use of renewable electricity generation, energy storage technologies have several benefits:
Grid Resilience | A more efficient electrical grid that is more resistant to disruptions.
Emissions Reductions | Decreased carbon dioxide emissions from a greater use of clean electricity.
Economic Gain | Increase in the economic value of wind and solar power; New income sources for rural landowners and tax revenues for wind and solar development areas; More jobs in supporting sectors such as manufacturing, engineering, construction, transportation and finance.
