Markets and Applications
The energy system is subdivided into generation, distribution and consumption sections. Energy storage is set to become the established fourth section.
CMBlu’s organic flow battery is particularly suitable for applications, like stationary ones, where weight and size are no disadvantage.
It is a foundation on which industrial and commercial applications can be built. In market trading terms it enables spot market trading, arbitrage, discard and reserve energy trading as well as balancing group management. As far as usage is concerned, it forms the basis for self-consumption enhancement, demand peak capping, interruption-free power supply, electromobility charging infrastructure and standalone operations.
A diverse range of stationary applications can be actioned for onshore and offshore wind parks, for large-scale PV plants, for conventional power station locations, for electromobility providers and for operators of residential districts. Battery systems for ships featuring electric propulsion are developed and sold in the maritime segment.
The adoption of electromobility requires the comprehensive provision of charging points. A particular challenge is being able to fast-charge several electric vehicles in parallel, a process that is frequently hindered by existing delivery rates. An organic flow battery makes simultaneous fast-charging feasible.
Bulk power stores
Power stations are integrated into regional and transregional electricity grids, and are required to perform grid stabilization tasks or provide district heating in addition to their core task of providing electricity. Stationary bulk power batteries play an important role in power stations’ transformation processes.
Wind / PV power storage
Conventional power stations that are based on the combustion of primary energy sources are increasingly giving way to renewable energy-based power stations. To ensure a uniform energy supply, the latter require stationary energy stores.
Residential districts have the potential to become self-sufficient in electricity supply terms, which requires stationary bulk power stores that can also meet the requirements of an “all electric world” featuring, for example, connection facilities for electrically powered bikes and cars, and that are above all safe to operate.
CO2 neutrality will need to be achieved in many essential sectors of industry in the coming years and decades. Stationary bulk power stores in combination with renewable energies are set to play a key role in helping to achieve this objective.
