MICROGRIDS

Energy storage is key to realizing the full potential of microgrids and eliminating dependence on fossil fuel systems for power supply and power quality. It strengthens your grid by providing critical system services to buffer the impact of fluctuating power demand and supply. This reduces the runtime on aging and expensive back-up diesel generation.

WHY BATTERY STORAGE ?

INTEGRATE UP TO 100 PERCENT RENEWABLES
Younicos microgrid solutions ensure the reliable grid integration of variable, intermittent renewable energy sources of up to 100 percent. Simulated at our MW-scale technology centers, proven on Graciosa. Truly game-changing!
REDUCE YOUR GENERATION COSTS
By operating your generator solely as a backup power source, you will save a lot on fuel. At the same time, you increase your generator’s lifespan and decrease O&M costs by running it mainly at optimal loading and reduced cycling.
POWER QUALITY AND RELIABILITY
A weak grid increases the risk of load losses and may require additional investment in electrical infrastructure. Our microgrid solutions not only manage multiple resources, but also strengthen your grid by providing grid services within milliseconds, with highest precision and the utmost reliability.
FROM ISLAND TO MAINLAND MICROGRIDS
We have taken our island grid expertize and applied it to successful grid-forming solutions on mainland and urban networks. Based on our experience of a decade of R&D and project realization, we have all the tools needed to construct an efficient and reliable local microgrid.

HOW CAN WE SUPPORT YOU ?

Our energy storage solution for microgrids is simulated in our state-of-the-art technology centers and proven in our operating projects. Based upon unmatched expertise drawn from over a decade of R&D, we will provide you with a complete solution: from need analysis and system design, to project specification, to deployment and operations.

#1

NEEDS ANALYSIS AND
SYSTEM DESIGN

 

Using sophisticated in-house modelling tools developed specifically for Microgrid scenarios, we quantify a range of options incorporating different resource capacity factors and load flow scenarios..  Based upon your input on local operating conditions, we assess the energy storage size needed to maintain grid stability under different scenarios.   

#2

PROJECT SPECIFICATION & TESTING

 

Using chosen battery technology and power electronics, as well as actual power lines and transmission switches, we test the entire Microgrid design under real conditions in our Technology Center. To test the interaction between resources, we use our onsite diesel generator and renewable generation simulators to recreate energy flows based on weather data.

#3

PROJECT DEPLOYMENT & OPERATION

 

Along with installation of the storage system, our engineering team oversees implementation of the microgrid Energy Management System (‘EMS’). The EMS is specifically configured to ensure all critical grid services are provided by the specified microgrid resource mix – incorporating renewables, energy storage and conventional generation.
