HyPES systems are robust and sustainable solution mainly intended to provide clean energy efficiency and autonomy to electricity consumers in replacement to electrochemical batteries and diesel generators, and to enhance the exploitation of intermittent renewable sources like wind and photovoltaic sources.
HyPES systems offer many competitive advantages over electrochemical batteries:
- Effective environmental Friendliness: use of air, water, steel as main material.
- Simplicity and performance capacity: turnkey, integrated storage and management.
- Long service life: 20+ years with very low maintenance.
Cost competitiveness: Levelized cost of storage LCOS in the range 250 – 1’000 $/MWh
