Power packed: Eos Energy Storage’s batteries ease grid demand in brownout-plagued countries
It’s pretty intuitive, really.
Countries that have rolling brownouts on a consistent basis are a good place to operate when you’re in the battery business.
And, just to be clear, we’re not talking about the batteries you put in the flashlights you keep in the drawer of the nightstand.
Philippe Bouchard, of the Edison-based energy company Eos Energy Storage, explained it better.
“During (brownouts), portions of grids can be powered down for about four hours at a time,” he said. “They do that regularly in places such as India and South Africa to prevent a full-scale blackout. That’s typically an indicator of where a battery technology with multiple hours of discharge capability can create a lot of value.”
