Energy storage systems are the key to unlocking the full potential of renewables, offering a glimpse into a more sustainable future.

Energy storage is essential for modernizing the energy grid and supporting the transition to renewable energy. Energy Storage Systems (ESS) are vital for storing energy and stabilizing electrical performance in large grid installations as well as medium commercial and residential settings. At the core of ESS are lithium-ion batteries, which, along with inverters or Power Conditioning Systems (PCS), manage peak and off-peak power demands for localities or households. In smart homes, residential ESS feature wall-mounted batteries or modules paired with AC/DC inverters. For commercial or industrial use, multiple modules are stacked into racks, and these racks are arranged within containers to form commercial ESS for large smart grids. ESS capture excess power from renewable sources like solar and wind, preventing massive frequency fluctuations and enhancing grid reliability and power quality. Amphenol provides a range of high power connectors and many more advanced interconnects for ESS.
