Energy Storage

Energy Storage

Energy storage is the capture of energy produced at one time for use at a later time. It is a combination of hardware and software systems that store and optimize energy that is generated. When solar and other renewable technologies are combined with energy storage, you can future-proof your installation by protecting against changing utility rates, variable energy costs, grid outages or can also provide dependable off-grid energy supply.

Benefits Of Energy Storage


Reduce Demand Charges

Demand charges, based on peak monthly usage, can be reduced with energy storage, which manages and minimizes load spikes.


Shift Load To Off-Peak Periods

Energy storage can be set to charge when electricity rates are low and discharge during peak pricing times, optimizing cost savings.


Boost The Value Of Solar

Pairing solar with storage optimizes energy use, charging batteries during peak solar output, making solar a cost-effective energy choice.


Increase Facility Resiliency

Amidst grid challenges from climate extremes, energy storage aids by alleviating peak demand and offering backup during power outages.

New Age Energy Solutions:

 Pioneering the Battery Revolution

cost-effectiveness and environmentally friendly

Flow Batteries in Renewable Energy

Flow batteries, also known as redox flow batteries (RFBs), are a unique energy storage solution, setting them apart from traditional batteries. Their design involves storing energy in liquid electrolytes rather than solid electrodes.

Key Features

1.Scalability Easily sized to match energy outputs from renewable sources, ensuring no energy is wasted.
2.Longevity Built for resilience, these batteries can handle numerous charge/discharge cycles, making them ideal for daily renewable energy integration.
3.Safety First Their design minimizes the risk of thermal runaway, enhancing their safety profile especially in populated regions.

Lifespan of Flow Batteries

Flow batteries have a notably long cycle life. Depending on the specific design and usage conditions, they can last for 20 years or more. A significant advantage is their ability to undergo numerous charge and discharge cycles with minimal degradation, which means they can be used daily for years without substantial loss of capacity.

Why Flow Batteries Matter in Renewables

Flow batteries offer several compelling advantages over other energy storage solutions, particularly when it comes to integrating with renewable energy sources:


Their energy capacity can be easily increased just by adding more electrolyte, making them flexible for different applications.

Economic Potential

Flow batteries are commonly a quarter of the price compared to lithium composition batteries.

Grid Stability

Flow batteries efficiently stabilize grids, storing surplus energy during high production and releasing it during peak demand.

Remote Power

Flow batteries efficiently stabilize grids, storing surplus energy during high production and releasing it during peak demand.

Reliable Backup

In regions with frequent power disruptions, they provide a dependable backup from renewable sources.

Cost and Eco Benefits

Flow batteries often have lower long-term costs than lithium alternatives and present a greener, more recyclable choice, reducing environmental impact.

Unique class of rechargeable batteries

Nickel-Hydrogen Batteries (NHBs)

Nickel-Hydrogen Batteries, commonly referred to as NiH₂ or NHBs, are a unique class of rechargeable batteries. Historically favored in aerospace and satellite applications, they've earned a reputation for exceptional reliability and longevity, especially in the challenging environment of space.

Key Features

1.Robust Lifespan: NiH₂ batteries boast an impressive cycle life, capable of delivering up to 30,000 charge/discharge cycles in specific conditions.2.Reliability
Their consistent performance, even under demanding conditions, makes them invaluable for missions requiring extended operational periods without the possibility of maintenance.3.Safety First
With a commendable safety record, they present fewer risks compared to some other high-energy battery technologies.
4.Overcharge Resistance: One of their distinct advantages is their resilience to overcharging, which can contribute to their prolonged operational life.
High Energy Density: Especially when compared to other battery types of their era, NiH₂ batteries offer a high energy storage capacity relative to their size.

Lifespan of NHB Batteries

Nickel-Hydrogen batteries are renowned for their extended cycle life, especially in the demanding conditions of space. When properly managed, they can deliver up to 30,000 charge/discharge cycles and expected lifetime of 30 years in satellite applications. Their robustness and reliability have made them a favorite for missions that require extended operational periods without maintenance.

Why Nickel-Hydrogen Batteries Could Be Significant:

NHB's offer several compelling advantages over other energy storage solutions, particularly when it comes to integrating with renewable energy sources:

Economic Potential

Nickel-hydrogen batteries (NHBs) typically cost just 15% of the price of lithium-based batteries.


Historically proven in aerospace, they're known for dependable performance even in challenging conditions.

High Cycle Life

One of the notable strengths of NiH₂ batteries is their ability to handle many charge and discharge cycles, making them suitable for applications where frequent cycling is needed.


These batteries have a good safety record, especially when compared to some other high-energy battery technologies.

Resistance to Overcharge

Unlike some battery chemistries, NiH₂ batteries are less sensitive to overcharging, which can extend their operational life

Potential for Broader Applications

While their primary use has been in space, the characteristics of NiH₂ batteries – especially their long life and reliability – might make them suitable for other demanding applications in the future, especially if production costs can be reduced.
