Energy Storage for Microgrids
Energy storage enables microgrids to respond to variability or loss of generation sources. A variety of considerations need to be factored into selecting and integrating the right energy storage system into your microgrid. Getting it wrong is an expensive and dangerous mistake.
S&C has more experience integrating energy storage systems than any other microgrid provider, with 189 MWh of energy storage experience throughout the world. We specialize in guiding you through the complexity of energy storage so your system operates efficiently and adapts to the grid of tomorrow.
