GE launches ‘The Reservoir”
The Reservoir allows seamless integration of renewables into the grid
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.
