Electrical energy cannot be stored directly, but it can be stored in other forms and then converted back to electricity when needed.
Storing electrical energy efficiently
With our range of dynamic Battery Energy Storage Systems, ABB has developed an effective and efficient approach that enables energy produced by either conventional thermal generation or renewable sources to be stored and then made available as required.
As a major contribution to achieving stringent environmental targets, our battery systems do not emit any CO2 emissions. They also maximize the efficient use of renewable energy sources by reducing their inherent intermittency, facilitating integration into the power chain.
