The lithium ion battery is very widespread, especially in mobile applications, hence this technology is being offered by more and more manufacturers. Its great advantages are the high energy density, efficiency and good cycle stability as well as a resulting long lifetime. These batteries are easy to scale due to the established modular concept and require only minimal maintenance.
Since this storage technology is versatile and very widespread, we choose it for the majority of our projects. One example of application is the electrification of remote island networks in combination with solar or wind as well as diesel. In one of our projects, the storage facility has to be able to cope with extreme cold and the fluctuating feed-in of wind energy. In another project, the battery has to withstand heat, high humidity and the feed-in of solar energy. The lithium battery is flexible enough to cope with these extreme environmental conditions. We also use this type of storage for our customers’ stand-alone solutions to provide peak shaving.
