We Help Grids Catch
Balancing momentary mismatches between power being generated and power being used is a critical system requirement, made more complex by the increasing amounts of intermittent power generation from wind and solar. Temporal’s high performance flywheel technology is built to help utilities efficiently operate and effectively stabilize their power systems with confidence. Grid balancing has historically been achieved by conventional power generators that can ramp up or down their power output to support the power systems changing requirements. The speed at which a generator is able to ramp up and down dictates the value being provided to help the grid get back to balance as quickly and efficiently as possible. While traditional generators can take many minutes to ramp to desired power output levels, Temporal flywheels can ramp in milliseconds, delivering more energy precisely when it is required.
