Key element of the future energy system

The “Stationary energy storage system” brochure provides detailed information on a range of Bosch solutions:

With the shift from fossil fuels to renewable sources of energy, power generation is also changing. There is a clear move away from large power plants and toward smaller producers. Wind and solar parks, cogeneration units, heat pumps, and biogas plants are already feeding power into the public grid. This has given rise to new challenges for network operators. In contrast to coal-fired power plants, for instance, wind parks cannot consistently generate the same amount of power, and thus cannot guarantee a reliable power supply.

Stationary energy storage systems can offset this volatility. On particularly windy days, they store power surpluses and feed them into the grid at a later point in time. In this way, the giant high-performance batteries contribute to better integrating renewable sources of energy in the existing power generation system. This increases the market value of power generated with renewable sources of energy. Thanks to energy storage systems, operators can always feed power from renewable sources into the grid whenever supply is low, and this helps keep prices on the energy markets high.

Bosch offers a range of comprehensive energy storage solutions for residential, commercial, or industrial applications. The stationary batteries can have capacities ranging from several hundred kilowatts to several megawatts. Depending on their size, they can supply power to a household, a company, or even a whole community.
