- Thermal energy storage.
In simplest terms, energy storage enables electricity to be saved for a later, when and where it is most needed. This creates efficiencies and capabilities for the electric grid—including the ability to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
An energy storage system that reserves energy for later consumption that is charged by a connected solar system. The stored electricity is consumed after sundown, during energy demand peaks, or during a power outage. Most common on residential or commercial buildings.
Energy Storage Systems are the set of methods and technologies used to store energy. The stored energy can be drawn upon at a later time to perform useful operations. For instance, many renewable energy sources (such as wind, solar energy, or solar energy, and tides) are intermittent.
A catalyst releases the saved energy as heat while returning the molecule to its original shape, ready to be used again. Over the years, researchers have refined the system to the point that it is now possible to store the energy for an incredible 18 years.

Advanced energy storage is a rapidly evolving technology sector critical for 21st-century electricity grids. We are one of the earliest pioneers in advanced energy storage and North America’s leading owner and operator of transformative technology.
In 2022, China connected a battery farm consisting of 800 MWh redox flow batteries with vanadium electrolyte to the grid. With the ability to supply 200 MW of electricity for up to 4 hours, it is the largest battery farm of its kind in the world.
