Energy Storage Solutions

 
 

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.

Summary

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 86MW wind and 155MW Solar PV dispatchable power, coupled with 92MW/ 242 MWh battery storage. The project represents a blueprint for a carbon-neutral, renewable future power grid, providing baseload power from renewables for the first time, with potential to power approximately 180,000 South African homes and reduce CO2 emissions by roughly 573,105 tonnes annually.

ENGIE has been providing Saudi Aramco with power and steam through Tihama Combined Heat and Power (CHP) project, located in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. CHP is an energy efficient technology that generates electricity and captures the heat that would otherwise be wasted to provide useful thermal energy —such as steam or hot water—that can be used for space heating, cooling, domestic hot water and industrial processes. By capturing and using heat that would otherwise be wasted, and by avoiding distribution losses, CHP can achieve efficiencies of over 80 percent, compared to 50 percent for typical technologies (i.e., conventional electricity generation and an on-site boiler).
