Saft battery power back-up systems play a key role in electricity production, distribution, transmission and protection schemes and increasingly, they provide energy storage for decentralised grids including renewables. They are essential to a vast range of applications from protecting control and switching systems and supporting UPS installations right through to utility meters and AMR (Automated Meter Reading).
In addition, batteries are used to improve grid stability by acting as a buffer to compensate for the intermittent nature of renewable energy resources.
Saft’s state-of-the-art nickel-cadmium (Ni-Cd), nickel-metal hydride (Ni-MH) and lithium-ion (Li-ion) rechargeable batteries provide the vital last line of defence that enables you to:
- maintain critical loads
- start alternative generators
- control essential equipment.
Choosing the right Saft solution is effective insurance against power loss – ensuring real peace of mind.
Smooth out the peaks and troughs
Compensating for the inherently intermittent nature of PV (photovoltaic) and wind energy in stand-alone, hybrid power and grid connected installations requires reliable, efficient energy storage systems. These act as a vital buffer while the network switches between generation modes – ensuring continuity of customer supply.
A particular challenge for battery systems in DER (Distributed Energy Resources) and RES (Renewable Energy System) installations is that they are often in remote locations and subjected to harsh temperatures and punishing humidity. Even in these extreme conditions Saft batteries deliver high performance, long service life and low maintenance requirements.
