NCSEA’s Energy Storage Program works to ensure North Carolina will deploy energy storage to deliver affordable, clean, and reliable electricity where and when it is needed.
Examples of Energy Storage May Include:
Batteries are energy storage devices that convert chemical energy into electrical energy through oxidation.
These technologies capture electrical energy with kinetic or gravitational forces until the electricity is needed.
Electric energy is transformed and stored usually as heat. For example, some air conditioning systems produce ice at night which is used to cool buildings the next day as it melts.
Pumped Hydroelectric Storage
Water pumped uphill to a reservoir which can be released through a dam to generate electricity.
