Capacity Optimization is Critical
Power disturbances are a major cost and concern for today’s utilities and industries as they struggle to cope with growing demand, an aging infrastructure and the challenges of incorporating renewable resources. In fact, over the past 20 years, blackouts have increased 124%. Frequent and potentially destructive disturbances from power grids are also resulting in voltage sags, brownouts, over voltage conditions and power outages.†Stabilizing your power grid means preparing for voltage regulation, frequency regulation, ramp control and peak shaving. Increasingly, utilities are discovering significant benefits through the integration of large battery systems into their power grid architecture. That’s why EnerSys® is proud to offer OptiGrid™ Stored Energy Solutions—a flexible, turnkey, utility-scale capacity optimization system.

EnerSys® OptiGrid™ Stored Energy Solutions is a complete, packaged solution that combines the right battery chemistry, power conditioning system, monitoring system, shelter and installation, as well as full service and engineering to best match your technical and economic requirements. What OptiGrid™ Stored Energy Solutions by EnerSys® can do for you Designed to help manage grid-level storage needs and meet Federal Energy Regulatory Commission rules, OptiGrid Stored Energy Solutions enables users to improve power quality and efficiency, moderate peak demand and effectively integrate energy from renewable resources.
The system can respond to demand response signals from utilities by injecting active power into the grid from stored energy. It maintains uninterrupted power during power outages, utilizes solar to sustain load during daylight hours, and features cutting-edge inverter technology to improve reliability.
Storing power close to the load also relieves strain on the transmission and distribution infrastructure, reducing losses that come from delivering power over congested and thermally limited lines during peak demand times. This provides the opportunity for customers to participate in ancillary utility markets by providing or absorbing power. Service, support and financial flexibility As an end-to-end solution, EnerSys does more than just provide the products you need to optimize capacity. Our experienced experts will evaluate your facility’s needs, recommend the best storage technology and provide a turnkey installation. We also are able to offer unique financing options that include leasing through the EnerSys Financial SolutionsSM Group.
