Electric warehouses are a technological advancement that will replace traditional substations for delivering reliable electric energy. In addition to the components normally found in a substation, electric warehouses will include energy storage modules to store supplemental power. These large-scale units will release energy when power supplied by renewable energy sources drops, such as on a cloudy day.
What is an Electric Warehouse?
An electric warehouse is an emerging concept that includes a collection of components usually found in a substation (incoming lines, transformers, circuit breakers, outgoing lines, etc.), along with some new technologies. To become a warehouse, energy storage modules will be added to substations to provide additional power when supplemental energy is needed.
