Designed with sustainability in mind, these units are suitable for noise-sensitive locations, dramatically reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions during operation.
Compact and light compared with traditional alternatives, these cutting-edge energy storage systems are ideal for applications with a high energy demand and variable load profiles, accounting for both low loads and peaks. They can work standalone and synchronized, as the heart of decentralized hybrid systems with several energy inputs, like the grid, power generators and renewable energies. At events, construction sites, telecom, manufacturing, mining, oil and gas and rental applications, among other applications, these models provide resilient and sustainable energy on demand, helping you meet regulations and cut costs.
These battery-based energy units help rental companies and end-users deploy flexible, reliable power. By combining an energy storage system and an integrated ECO ControllerTM —Atlas Copco's Energy Management System (EMS)— with low-emission modular assets, such as solar and other renawable sources, you can decarbonize your operations, while achieving significant fuel, energy and lifecycle savings.
Energy Storage Systems frequently asked questions
Battery energy storage systems are transforming the power supply sector by becoming the heart of energy efficient solutions. They are used in off-grid applications or to boost the limited grid available by efficiently storing and delivering energy to match the load demand.
Weather it is as a standalone solution, in hybrid mode —with the grid, renewable energies or power generators— or as the central piece of a microgrid, energy storage systems help operators to increase their overall operational productivity, by optimizing energy consumption and cutting costs. Additionally, being battery-based, they are suitable for noise-sensitive environments, meeting regulations.
In a Li-ion battery, the electrolytes carry positively charged lithium ions between the anodes and the cathodes though the separator. When the battery is powering a device, the anode releases lithium ions to the cathode, creating a flow of electrons. In rechargeable batteries, this flow reverses when the battery charges. Then, the lithium ions are released by the cathode and received by the anode.
With a complete portfolio of energy storage systems, users will now benefit from increased flexibility and versatility in their operations, with both stand-alone and hybrid solutions across their sites.
This battery-based energy solution helps rental companies and end-users deploy flexible, reliable power. Regardless of the operating mode, by combining an energy storage system and an integrated ECO ControllerTM, you can decarbonize your operations, while achieving significant fuel, energy and lifecycle savings. Their versatility translates into a profitable solution with a low Total Cost of Ownership.
Energy storage systems are suitable for noise-sensitive environments, such as events and construction sites, as well as for telecom, manufacturing, mining, oil and gas and rental applications.
They are ideal for applications with a high energy demand and variable load profiles, as they successfully cover both low loads and peaks. For example, they can properly size cranes and other electric motors, and efficiently manage peaks in energy demand for noise-sensitive events and for electric vehicles (EV) recharging stations. Operators can synchronize several models, which can become the heart of any microgrid, storing and delivering energy coming from several energy sources, including renewables.
In addition, when coupled with a power generator, energy storage systems account for low load, reducing the generator running hours by up to 70%. This translates into a longer generator lifetime, five to ten years.
