As a battery technology, lithium ion (Li-ion) has several advantages. Firstly, because it can react quickly to changing supply and demand, Li-ion is particularly well suited to riding out variations in wind output from seconds to hours, matching the intermittent breaks and gusts in wind power. Li-ion performs predictably over a large number of charge and discharge cycles. This translates into a calendar life of 10 years or more.
In addition, its high energy density combined with the low weight of lithium means that Li-ion batteries are relatively small and lightweight, providing close to 1 MWh of energy in a single six-metre container and with a power capability of up to 2 MW. Intensium Max containers can also be shipped fully assembled and factory tested, thus minimizing the work that has to be performed on-site.
