Energy Storage

The pro­gres­si­ve cost reduc­tion of rene­wa­ble ener­gy tech­no­lo­gies has crea­ted an unstopp­a­ble growth in the demand for Rene­wa­ble Ener­gy Sources (RESs) at a glo­bal level. The inter­mit­tent natu­re of RESs, howe­ver, cau­ses net­work plan­ning and net­work sta­bi­li­ty issu­es for ener­gy sys­tem ope­ra­tors. To over­co­me the­se issu­es, new ener­gy sto­rage faci­li­ties are required.

Today, a varie­ty of dif­fe­rent tech­no­lo­gies, such as mecha­ni­cal, ther­mal, che­mi­cal, elec­tro­che­mi­cal, and electri­cal sto­rage sys­tems, are being fur­ther deve­lo­ped and are alrea­dy com­pe­ting on the short‑, medi­um- and long-term ener­gy sto­rage device markets.

While Pum­ped Hydro Sto­rage (PHS) still con­sti­tu­tes a 95 % share of the cur­r­ent­ly instal­led sto­rage capa­ci­ty, electri­cal, elec­tro­che­mi­cal and mecha­ni­cal tech­no­lo­gies, which cover dif­fe­rent sto­rage dura­ti­ons and fre­quen­ci­es of power sup­ply, are expe­ri­en­cing rapid growth and con­se­quent­ly a drop in pri­ce. Having a wealth of impres­si­ve refe­ren­ces gathe­red over two deca­des, ILF is among the key play­ers on the pum­ped hydro sto­rage mar­ket, as well as in the emer­ging tech­no­lo­gies mar­ket, whe­re ILF uses its vast expe­ri­ence in hand­ling gases and power genera­ti­on applications.

ILF is invol­ved in the lar­gest Li-Ion bat­te­ry pro­ject to date for fre­quen­cy regu­la­ti­on, demand shif­ting and peak shaving, as well as in the plan­ning of an advan­ced power-to-hydro­gen faci­li­ty. ILF offers the com­ple­te packa­ge of engi­nee­ring ser­vices, from the ear­ly sta­ges of pro­ject app­rai­sal, selec­tion of the opti­mal solu­ti­on, to pro­ject execution.

ILF also has expe­ri­ence in deve­lo­ping tech­no­lo­gies such as gra­vi­ty sto­rage and liquid air ener­gy sto­rage. ILF ren­ders all the ser­vices requi­red for the suc­cess­ful imple­men­ta­ti­on of ener­gy sto­rage projects.
