Many utilities view the implementation of energy storage as an important way to help meet current and future energy needs. Consider the following when choosing a system for your operation. As utilities face the converging stresses of increased demand, aging infrastructure and greater reliance on renewable energy, their ability to access scalable power has never been more critical. Peak electricity demand in the U.S. has exceeded transmission growth nearly 25 percent every year since 1982, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. In addition, the U.S. Energy Information Administration states that 51 percent of all generating capacity (530 GW) is at least 30 years old.
