02. Fits in local environments
Wind farms are an effective means of taking advantage of persistent natural phenomena to add clean power to the energy mix. In fact, there are countless inland regions and offshore locations where heavy winds are a prominent feature, both day and night. But like solar, wind is intermittent, and this inconsistency means it can’t be counted on to align with the relatively regular daily demand curve for energy. Further—and sometimes more importantly—wind installation programs often meet resistance from local communities concerned about the impact on prized landscapes.
That’s why Eos zinc-powered storage is the key to a successful wind power project. Like all BESS solutions, Eos systems ensure that power is captured from the strongest winds so that its energy can be transmitted on demand, exactly when—and where—it’s needed most. But unlike others, our inherently non-flammable, non-corrosive Eos Znyth battery technology can be safely housed indoors—in our compact, containerized Eos Cubes, in new, custom-built Eos Hangars, or in Eos Stacks, which can be installed within existing, underused or abandoned buildings. In all cases, in a hybrid wind + Eos storage project, our BESS installation easily blends into the environment, helping alleviate community challenges—and a “Gigawatt Garden” style implementation could even act as a catalyst for local economic and ecological renewal.
