Energy Storage for Remote Sites: Ensuring continuity of supply and increasing the penetration of renewables


In this white paper, Saft explains how large-scale energy storage systems (ESS) based on lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery technology can help remote sites make the transition to renewable energy while preserving continuity of supply.

It details the factors that are critical in the early project phases that will enable a successful ESS system, capturing maximum renewable energy along with substantial Opex and emissions savings.


In conclusion, building an energy storage solution for an isolated site is a complex exercise involving several external factors linked to the remote character of the site. It requires optimisation of the energy mix and power flows from multiple, system-specific generation sources, and the addressing of various challenges during project execution. Highly granular, dynamic simulation of all system components, including battery thermal and aging behavior in the early project phases is therefore critical. This approach has already shown that even a modestly sized storage battery [of less than 1 hour storage capacity], when well-designed and correctly implemented, can enable renewable generation sources to make the maximum contribution to a remote site as well as offering substantial Opex and CO2 savings.
