Renewable Stabilization

By absorbing fluctuating renewable energy such as wind and solar during off-peak times, NAS batteries can provide additional power during periods of peak demand.

Constant output of wind power
Timeshift of solar power

Fossil Fuel Peaker Plant Replacement

NAS batteries can provide resource adequacy capacity of six hours or more per day, providing a green alternative to fossil fuel peaker plants. Moreover, NAS batteries can also provide on-peak/off-peak price arbitrage, frequency regulation, ramping services, VAR support and other grid functions.
