By: SGN Staff
Lithium-ion batteries have emerged as possibilities for grid-scale storage, notes David Martin of Innovation Observatory. Potential applications include:
Â· Buffering renewables
Â· Substation-level load balancing and peak shaving
Â· Off-grid recharging of electric vehicle (EV) batteries
Â· Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) for critical applications such as servers or medical facilities
Â· Portable, ancillary and back-up power supply
Â· Distributed smart grid management
In the full article linked below, David reports on lithium-ion's pros and cons and comments on 14 of the top vendors.
