Hybrid Energy Storage 

FES could be easily integrated with batteries to form a hybrid storage system with improved efficiency and durability:

  • Given the unlimited number of cycles FES could be used to manage shorter more frequent events, reserving batteries for longer ones, thus extending their service life

  • Single FES unit could provide as much power as several batteries, meaning that fewer batteries should be kept in reserve to accommodate high-power events, thus reducing the size and cost of the system

  • A hybrid mode could be used to deliver the best of the two types of storage: batteries could be used for longer-term storage, while FES could be used to deliver high power or  to accommodate frequent requests

Ultra-fast electric refueling

The use of «FES»  with electric charging stations will allow:

  • Extend the service life of charging stations in places with high traffic (up to 25 years)

  • Expand coverage areas to remote areas through the accumulation of energy from renewable energy sources or low-voltage power lines

  • Reduce the cost of installing and operating gas stations

  • There is a reserve for the development of batteries in a car that can be charged in a few minutes

  • Build a fleet of mobile superfast EV charging stations that charge vehicles outside of stationary charging points (e.g. carsharing ark on the streets)

«Kinetic» System for Port Cranes’ Energy Recovery

Significant amount of wasted energy could be recovered using «Kinetic»

  • «KEST» offers energy recovery and peak power reduction solution for cranes based on the innovative Kinetic Energy Storage System  

  • With «Kinetic» system 40% of the electricity consumed by cranes could be saved by capturing wasted potential energy of lowering cargo and reusing it to power the equipment

  • «Kinetic» system could reduce crane’s CO2 emission by 50% by reducing energy consumption and enabling downsizing of the diesel generators

  • «Kinetic» system is compatible with most of the modern cranes and could be easily integrated with both the externally connected gird, isolated girds, and cranes powered by generators

«Kinetic» System for for electric rail vehicles Energy Recovery

Unlimited number of cycles, high power, and fast response make FES perfect for electric grid applications, including:

  • Frequency regulation by serving as Primary Reserve (Frequency Containment Reserve)

  • Support for smart grids through energy control and redistribution

  • Peak shaving by absorbing excess energy and releasing it to meet the demand 

  • Grid balancing

Renewable and Distributed Energy Sources

FES could facilitate integration and broader adoption of renewable energy sources by improving the quality and reliability of energy supply, including:

  • Frequency and voltage regulation

  • Intraday supply/demand balancing (especially in the isolated grids)

  • Absorption of excess capacity (spikes in generation)

 

«KEST» for an uninterruptible power supply system

The use of the «Kinetic» system will allow:

  • Provide fast response (less than 10 ms) and maintain power supply before starting the backup power source (diesel generators)

  • Reduce the number of starts of standby power supplies during short-term emergency outages and extend their service life

  • Increase the peak power of the fuel cells to the required level

Virtual Power Plants

FES’s ability to momentarily switch between charging and discharging, while flexibly controlling power and improving quality of electricity make it an ideal foundation for the VPP :

  • VPP  implements principles of transactive energy by connecting distributed consumers, producer, and prosumers (e.g. consumer with solar panels on a roof) allowing them to trade and exchange energy directly

  • Connected to each other and FES system, smaller consumers and producers can trade with each other and gain access to the energy market 

  • FES serves as a buffer and a 'place' for energy exchange, while automated control system tracks the energy and financial flows between the members
