Driven by societal demand, emerging business opportunities, and the need to protect our environment by introducing sustainable technologies and energy sources, a revolution and evolution for energy storage has been heralded in. These advanced energy storage systems enable the industry to develop innovative concepts that tackle many of the challenges we are facing.
Some of these concepts, such as grid connected storage, plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) and the electric vehicle (EV) are on the verge of large scale market introduction, receiving growing awareness and attention. We envision electricity storage becoming a vital component of the future grid, electricity value chain, and the personal mobility landscape of the future, just as it is already central to personal communication.
Integration of advanced energy sources into complex infrastruc-tures and demanding applications has great potential benefits, and at the same time, raises the awareness that more insights are needed to understand and manage integration issues. Typically these integration issues need to be addressed on regulatory, process, technical, safety and environmental levels.
DNV KEMA is uniquely qualified to assess these emerging technologies. With our testing facilities in Europe and the U.S, Research & Innovation, and Consulting services, DNV KEMA is able to provide services across the entire storage value chain. Our energy storage solutions are based on hands-on experience in developing advanced storage technologies and dynamic simulation models.
