Did you know that there are many benefits to choosing energy storage? It depends on the application and the type of technology that is selected to meet that application’s requirement. Energy storage provides benefits to electricity end-users and to society as a whole. The spectrum of storage benefits can be grouped into six broad application/use categories:

  • Electric supply
  • Electrical grid operations
  • Electrical grid infrastructure
  • End-user
  • Renewables integration
  • Incidental (and other)

They also 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. Five main categories:

  1. Batteries
  2. Thermal
  3. Mechanical Storage
  4. Hydrogen
  5. Pumped Hydropower
