One of the challenges of a smart grid is ability to cope with intermittent and variable power sources. But this is a must, since power sources such as wind and solar are becoming increasingly important. ABB is meeting this challenge through its energy storage solutions. The newest member of the ABB FACTS family is one such solution, combining SVC Light® and the latest battery energy storage technology. This "marriage" of technologies enables the balancing of power to accommodate large amounts of renewable energy. Likewise, it can help improve stability and power quality in grids with a greater reliance on renewable generation.
