Storing clean electricity is a vital component to the global clean energy solution. Both solar and wind produce energy in peaks, and local grid-balancing and provision of a firm frequency response is critical to the viability of consistent energy provision. This is achieved through Energy Storage (ES), and most suitable technologies most commonly involve batteries.
GPCE are committed to providing the best form of ES for our clients and are developing owner-operator systems to marry with legislative frameworks, environmental ideals and lasting technological solutions.
There is no doubt that storage systems will evolve apace moving forwards, but current solutions lie in finding the best compromise between existing battery technologies. Such systems are capital intensive and governments are yet to provide the most attractive incentives for advancing storage systems in our existing markets. However, ES is central to GPCE’s strategy as an Independent Power Producer.
