Renewable energy is clearly the solution to transition towards carbon-neutrality. But there is one shortfall: how do you meet a 24/7 electricity demand with intermittent and variable renewable energy? The answer: Energy Storage.
Battery-based solutions in particular are: modular, easily scalable, able to match service requirements and relatively quick to deploy.
In South Africa, Battery Storage is a key aspect of the first-of-its-kind hybrid project, Oya. Straddling the Western and Northern Cape Provinces, the hybrid facility will offer 90MW wind and 155MW Solar PV dispatchable power, coupled with 88MW/ 242 MWh battery storage.
