Innovative energy storage technology for stationary use – Part 1: Overview of energy storage
|Publication Date:||1 August 2017|
This Recommendation identifies the main needs and applications of stationary electrical energy storage for information and communication technology (ICT) sites such as back-up on different grid quality and cyclic use of renewable energy systems. It also provides possible selection criteria for the correct choice for the end system. The topics considered are:
- families of electrical energy storage, such as batteries or supercapacitors;
- technologies types and their main properties;
- adaptation to requirements (e.g., functionalities, technology availability, electrical characteristics, environmental adaptation, maintenance type, cost);
- national or regional rules and regulations.
The Recommendation highlights the need for evaluation methods that are complementary to existing battery standards as they allow different time-frames including shorter tests compared to common energy storage industry tests.
This Recommendation is Part 1 of a series of Recommendations that cover energy storage technologies (e.g., battery, supercapacitor) applicable to stationary telecom/ICT equipment used in telecom networks, data centres and customer premises equipment (CPE).
