Storage Boosts Hydro Usage for Alaskan Microgrid

Jim McDowall, Saft Senior Technical Advisor, explains how a small salmon fishing town in Alaska has implemented a grid-scale 1MW energy storage system (ESS) to reduce its reliance on diesel generators.

The Future of Energy Storage & Microgrids

As electric utility companies look to drastically reduce their CO2 emissions over the next several decades, significant steps are already being taken to begin modernizing the grid. Microgrids represent a key component of that modernization.

Remote Communities Lead the Way to a Renewables Future

Remote communities often operate without the benefit of a main utility grid and depend on diesel fuel for power generation. This dependence on diesel represents not only economic cost, but also environmental cost in the form of greenhouse gas emissions and noise pollution.

How Smart Microgrids Will Change the Way We Consume Energy

Microgrids are smaller-scale versions of standard grids that can branch out to support local areas. When you add clean energy into the mix, you get smart microgrids.

Electric Cars Take Flight in 2019

EVs stepped on the gas in 2019. With the demand curve hitting no breaks, the battery electric vehicle market is likely to be reaching its tipping point by 2022.

Energy Storage & Microgrids

Besides encouraging more renewable electricity generation, improved energy storage technologies have several benefits, including a more efficient grid that is unaffected by disruptions and less carbon dioxide emissions because the electricity will be greener.

Airports, Microgrids and Resilient Power

Microgrids that combine on-site generation, energy storage, and smart, responsive energy loads, will prove to be an increasingly viable means to address the growing challenges at any airport.

Stat-X® Condensed Aerosol Fire Suppression

Stat-X® Condensed Aerosol Fire Suppression

Stat-X® Condensed Aerosol Fire Suppression is a solution for energy storage systems (ESS) and battery energy storage systems (BESS) applications. This includes in-building, containerized, and in-cabinet applications. The Stat-X product was tested for efficacy in putting out Li-ion battery fires. It was found that the Stat-X agent successfully extinguished single and double cell battery fires. This testing was conducted in parallel with a large battery fire testing program. DNV GL Energy conducted the testing and validated effectiveness of the Stat-X aerosol agent on cell level Li-ion battery fires.
