Utilities Middle East - - 2018 PRODUCTS OF THE YEAR -

With a com­mit­ment to de­liver cleaner, more re­li­able power where and when it’s needed most, GE (NYSE: GE) has launched the GE Reser­voir - a com­pre­hen­sive en­ergy stor­age plat­form that de­liv­ers a suite of cus­tomised stor­age so­lu­tions to help cus­tomers ad­dress new chal­lenges and seek new op­por­tu­ni­ties in a rapidly trans­form­ing power grid that is be­com­ing more highly di­ver­si­fied and dis­trib­uted.

The Reser­voir is an ideal fit for the Mid­dle East and North Africa, where re­new­able en­ergy, es­pe­cially so­lar power, is be­com­ing an in­creas­ingly sig­nif­i­cant part of the en­ergy mix. The Reser­voir ex­pands GE’s 10year foot­print in the en­ergy stor­age space and builds upon re­cent suc­cesses and mile­stones.

The 1.2MW, 4 MWh Reser­voir Stor­age Unit is the fun­da­men­tal build­ing block of GE’s Reser­voir plat­form. It is a mod­u­lar so­lu­tion that in­te­grates GE’s Bat­tery Blade de­sign (mod­ule stack de­sign) with key tech­nolo­gies from across the com­pany’s port­fo­lio to achieve an in­dus­try-lead­ing en­ergy den­sity, foot­print and life­time per­for­mance.

GE’s pro­pri­etary Blade Pro­tec­tion Unit (BPU) ac­tively bal­ances the safety, life, and pro­duc­tion of each bat­tery Blade, ex­tend­ing bat­tery life by up to 15% and re­duc­ing fault cur­rents by up to 5X.

“GE’s Reser­voir de­liv­ers the new type of en­ergy sys­tem that cus­tomers are look­ing for to help man­age elec­tric­ity’s next chap­ter,” ac­cord­ing to Rus­sell Stokes, Pres­i­dent & CEO of GE Power.
