Advanced energy storage technologies are helping transform the electricity grid to more effectively respond to changes in energy generation, utilization and policy. By delivering clean energy storage solutions that strengthen the efficiency, resiliency and reliability of the electricity grid, Altairnano is helping utilities and energy services companies achieve sustainable and economic power and energy management practices.
Creating More Efficient, Resilient and Reliable Electricity Grids
Today, utility and energy services companies respond to rapid and unexpected fluctuations in electricity generation and demand by continually ramping up or ramping down the production of conventional generation, such as coal and natural gas facilities. It’s a process often referred to as frequency regulation or dispatchable demand response.
The ALTI-ESS Energy Storage System is an adaptive, intelligent and scalable power and energy management platform that reduces dependencies on conventional generation required for frequency regulation. Based on advanced lithium-titanate technologies, the ALTI-ESS responds within milliseconds to these fluctuations by releasing or absorbing power from the electricity grid. This helps improve equipment and capacity utilization, strengthen operational efficiencies and reduce carbon emissions.
