Solutions for Energy Storage

With the growth of renewable energy generation and the imperative to reduce carbon emissions, the need for large-scale energy storage has never been greater. But few companies offer much experience in designing and deploying energy storage systems that can meet these objectives.

S&C, a leader at integrating energy storage into the grid, draws on real-world expertise to ensure your energy storage project is a success, from the earliest stages of project evaluation and design to system commissioning and life-cycle maintenance. Our energy storage systems use S&C’s field-proven power electronics technology to provide rapid response to changing system conditions. S&C’s PureWave® Storage Management System currently connects more than 90% of the grid-scale sodium-sulfur batteries installed in the United States. The PureWave® Community Energy Storage System provides distributed stored energy at the residential level and can support numerous smart grid goals, including peak shaving, load leveling, power factor correction and improved reliability.
