Solutions For the Grid

Enhanced grid reliability.  Brought to you by energy storage.

As electricity grids around the world evolve, the ability to manage power ‘on demand’ is decreasing.  Our solutions will enable a sustainable grid with no compromise on getting power when you need it, how you need it, and where you need it.


Benefits of Grid Energy Storage.

For Renewables

Enable More Renewables – Energy storage helps to prepare the grid to allow easy integration of more renewable generation like photovoltaic (PV) solar power and wind power.

  • Compensate for changing energy output from wind and solar
  • Get firm generating capacity from renewables
  • Shift stored renewable energy for later use

For Resiliency

Toughen the Grid – Resiliency is becoming more and more important in today’s changing environments.  Energy storage makes the grid tougher and harder to break.

For Reinforcement

Flexibility and Dispatchability – Energy storage has the power to impart incredible flexibility to the electric grid.

  • Vertical power ramp rate (from -100% to +100% output within milliseconds)
  • Fast response time (under 100 ms)
  • Run at zero (can be idle with no start/stop penalty)

Introducing The GSS®

NEC Energy Solutions has developed the GSS® to provide the benefits of energy storage to the grid. It is a safe, reliable and fully-integrated Grid Storage Solution, making it simple to get storage onto the grid in almost any location.
