Smart Grid Energy storage: UltraCapacitors
Have you already heard of UltraCapacitors to store renewable energy?
UltraCapacitors deliver quick bursts of energy during peak power demands, then quickly store energy and capture excess power that is otherwise lost.
They efficiently complement a primary energy source in today’s applications because they discharge and recharge quickly.
Quick bursts of power
Due to their many benefits, UltraCapacitors are currently being utilized in thousands of different applications, and considered in an equally diverse range of future applications. UltraCapacitors complement a primary energy source which cannot repeatedly provide quick bursts of power, such as an internal combustion engine, fuel cell or battery.
The future horizon looks brilliant for UltraCapacitors, which already rank as a powerful alternative energy resource.
Maxwell developed this rapidly emerging and increasingly applied technology.
Unlike batteries, which produce and store energy by means of a chemical reaction, UltraCapacitors store energy in an electric field.
This electrostatic energy storage mechanism enables UltraCapacitors to charge and discharge in as little as fractions of a second, perform normally over a broad temperature range (-40 degrees Celsius to +65 degrees Celsius), operate reliably through 1 million or more charge/discharge cycles and resist shock and vibration. Maxwell offers UltraCapacitor cells ranging in capacitance from one to 3,400 farads and multi-cell modules ranging from 12 to 160 volts.
Overview FlyWheel Companies and StartUps
ABB offers distributed energy storage modules for grid storage purposes, such as peak shaving, load shifting voltage regulation, renewable integration, and backup power. For distributed grid storage, ABB offers battery energy storage systems that integrate seamlessly into the power network. They employ a variety of battery technologies and non-battery technologies such as flywheels and super capacitors.
