Energy storage battery is the key to the large-scale development of renewable energy
The generalized energy storage battery technology includes heat storage and electricity storage.
In the narrow sense, it is a technology that uses physical or chemical means to store electrical energy and release it when needed.
Solar installer Sunrun said batteries can last anywhere between 5-15 years. That means a replacement likely will be needed during the 20-30 year life of a solar system. Battery life expectancy is mostly driven by usage cycles.
Batteries are devices used to store chemical energy that can be converted to useful and portable electrical energy. They allow for a free flow of electrons in the form of an electric current that can be used to power devices connected to the battery power source.
With the increasing energy demand, the constraints of traditional energy resources such as reserves, environmental pollution, energy efficiency, and cost are becoming increasingly prominent.
It has become a common theme all over the world to seek alternative energy and research and use new energy, which is also the irreversible trend of energy development in the future.
Energy storage technologies include mechanical energy storage, battery energy storage, and electromagnetic energy storage, among which the more mature ones that can be commercialized include pumped energy storage and compressed air energy storage, which are large-scale energy storage technologies.
It is generally believed that the commercial application of energy storage battery is also faced with cost issues, and only in a few areas with high electricity prices, combined with photovoltaic power generation, energy storage technology is economically viable.
With the progress of energy storage battery technology, the cost of battery storage is indeed declining, but it is generally considered that due to high cost or other technical factors, large-scale commercial application is not possible.
The importance of energy storage battery technology
At present, the main way to find new energy is to gradually integrate wind and solar energy into the power system, and occupy an increasing proportion.
Compared with the traditional fossil energy power generation, renewable energy power generation based on wind and solar energy relies on natural conditions and has the characteristics of volatility and intermittency. Large-scale inclusion will greatly impact the security and stability of the power grid.
Some experts believe that for wind power generation, the installed proportion is less than 10% of the system, the traditional technology can ensure the safety and stability of the power grid;
When the proportion of installed wind power exceeds 20%, energy storage means are needed to reduce volatility and intermittency and avoid unbearable impact on the grid. Therefore, the development of energy storage battery technology is a necessary condition for large-scale grid integration of renewable energy generation.
Energy storage Battery is the key to the large-scale development of renewable energy
China is not only the world’s largest electricity consumer but also the world’s largest generator of renewable energy, making it a key player in global renewable energy development.
The biggest problem in the development of renewable energy generation is its intermittency and unpredictability.
Energy storage battery is the most efficient and economical solution to the instability of renewable energy generation.
The advantage of energy storage battery is that it can be large or small and can be easily combined with renewable energy generation of all sizes.
Fast charging and discharging, direct electricity and electricity conversion, and high conversion efficiency. The biggest factor of its limitation lies in the economy, and the charge and discharge efficiency, safety, and life span associated with the cost.
Energy storage battery technology is a key between new energy development and electric vehicles, its technological breakthrough will change the energy pattern of the whole world.
It can be said that energy storage battery technology is the key to the new energy era. Once energy storage battery technology is economically feasible, it will open a door to a new energy era for mankind.
For China, the effective combination of electric vehicles, energy storage technology, and wind power solar energy, in addition to clean development, can also form an effective substitute for oil and ensure energy security.
Therefore, the government should attach importance to the development of energy storage battery technology. For traditional energy enterprises, it is especially necessary to attach importance to the development of energy storage technology.
Recent technological advances have brought energy storage technology closer and closer,
In the foreseeable future, the technical feasibility and economics of energy storage technology will be further enhanced by technological advances,
This change will have the potential to profoundly affect the world’s energy supply and mix,
This will have a huge impact on traditional energy businesses as well as our way of life.
