The adoption of wind and solar renewable energy creates instability in the electric grid due to the intermittent nature of these energy sources, creating opportunities for fault-friendly inverter technology and energy storage to mitigate these fluctuations. Small electric grids or those with high concentrations of heavy-fuel generation can more economically manage frequency control using energy storage technologies. The global market is estimated at $20 billion – 50 billion.
In the electric grid market, Altairnano provides utilities and ISOs and co-ops a scalable energy storage solution that:
- Transitions from full-power charge to full-power discharge at high rates in fewer than 100 milliseconds;
- Provides a reliable replacement for incumbent power technologies at a lower total cost of operation;
- Facilitates grid stability and systems interconnection/integration — with the best ramping rate performance in the industry;
- Is significantly safer than other lithium-ion technologies;
Compared to other technologies, provides the greatest number of cycles based on power and space;
Enables safe deployment of powerful batteries close to the load; and
Easily and safely interconnects the grid with fault-friendly inverter technology.
As a proven leader in grid stability and systems integration, Altairnano provides the best performance and cycle life in the industry – and the lowest total cost of operation for our customers.
We are the only nano lithium-titanate battery system available to the electric grid market today – and this technology allows us to provide the smallest package and highest energy recapture at the lowest cost.
