What is energy storage?


Energy storage

It simply put, is to store the generated electricity and use it when it is needed.

The approximate process that electricity goes through from production to final use is:

Home energy storage battery
Producing electricity (power plants, power stations) — transmitting electricity (grid companies) — using electricity (users). In the above three links, energy storage can be established, so energy storage can be divided according to application scenarios: Energy storage on the power generation side; energy storage on the grid side; energy storage on the user side.

WTech Smart Energy is a high-tech enterprise focusing on new energy power, lithium battery applications, energy storage technology Internet of Things, and artificial intelligence. It is committed to using Internet of Things and artificial intelligence technology to change the new energy power and new energy travel industries.

WTech smart energy storage system products include battery cells, modules/boxes and battery cabinets, etc., which can be used in the fields of power generation, transmission and distribution, and power consumption, covering solar or wind power generation and energy storage facilities, industrial enterprise energy storage, and commercial buildings. And data center energy storage, energy storage charging stations, communication base station backup batteries, home energy storage, etc.

Judging from the current electricity consumption environment dominated by thermal power, occasional use is still the mainstream. That is to say: the power plant generates electricity—transmits it to the grid—transmits it to users for use. There is no energy storage in the middle.

A small number of power grid companies will use pumped hydro storage to regulate peaks and frequency, pumping peaks and filling valleys. That is, when there is surplus electricity at night, electricity (water pumps) are used to pump water from the downstream of the hydropower station to the upstream to generate electricity.

With the updating and upgrading of the energy system and the advancement of the dual-carbon goal, renewable energy sources, led by solar energy and wind energy, have begun to be widely used. Since wind power and photovoltaic power are greatly affected by weather and have great instability, energy storage technology plays a vital role.

Some people believe that the combination of wind, solar and energy storage is likely to become a new energy development trend in the future.

The industry believes that in the next few years, the new energy energy storage industry will continue to “accelerate” and the deployment of long-term energy storage systems that adapt to large-scale needs will be accelerated.
