The increasing use of renewables
means that electricity grids are experiencing ever larger fluctuations. There
are periods with too much or too little green electricity. Energy storage
solutions solve this problem by storing surplus energy and making it available
again later so that more electricity can be generated. The stored energy can
also be used directly in the form of heat or as synthetic fuel in the transport
sector and shipping. This makes energy storage solutions an important factor in
what is called sector coupling too.
MAN Energy Solutions is
currently concentrating on development of the following energy storage
solutions: battery storage, electrothermal storage, liquid storage and
power-to-gas. “We possess great expertise in various storage technologies and
their key components. This means we can help to find and implement the optimum
storage solution for our customers,” says Dominik Heiss, Head of Energy Storage
Energy storage solutions are an
important element in making MAN Energy Solutions a leading provider of complete
energy solutions. Collaboration across sites and Strategic Business Units will
be key to success in this field.
