GE's Reservoir Platform… Cleaner, more reliable power where and when it's needed most.GE's Reservoir platform, developed with innovative technology from GE's Global Research Center, is a flexible, compact energy storage solution for AC or DC coupled systems. The Reservoir solution combines GE's advanced technologies and expertise in plant controls, power electronics, battery management systems and electrical balance of plant - all backed by GE's performance guarantees. The ability to tap deep and broad technical expertise from the GRC has integrated unique power and digital technologies that make the Reservoir a truly unique and differentiated solution. "At the GRC, we were able to originate a new idea and then pull from technologies across the Center to rapidly prototype, test and then productize this breakout storage platform," said Keith Longtin, Senior Executive and Product Breakout Leader at GE Global Research. "The Reservoir pulls in digital twins, Edge controls and extensive systems expertise through Global Research that you only will find in this platform." GE Reservoir Storage Unit The 1.2 MW, 4 MWh Reservoir Storage Unit, is the fundamental building block of GE's Reservoir platform. It is a modular solution that integrates GE's Battery Blade design (module stack design) with key technologies from across the company's portfolio to achieve an industry-leading energy density, footprint and lifetime performance. GE's proprietary Blade Protection Unit (BPU) actively balances the safety, life, and production of each battery Blade, extending battery life by up to 15% and reducing fault currents by up to 5X. The modular system has multiple installation and cabling options including pad or pier and is designed to minimize operation and maintenance (O&M) expenses over the life of the project with an all-weather design and high-efficiency cooling system. It is factory built and test to reduce project installation time and costs. A Living, Learning System GE's Reservoir platform leverages Predix and Edge controls technologies to provide data-driven insights that help energy operators enhance their systems. These digital technologies leverage GE's unique and unparalleled technical and industry domain knowledge across the entire energy ecosystem from generation to consumption. Put together, GE's Reservoir delivers the most comprehensive energy storage platform to help meet the energy industry's rapidly changing needs. The ability to offer highly customized solutions through the platform offers customers unprecedented levels of flexibility, resilience and operational efficiency in hybrid generation, grid operation and energy management. GE's Reservoir also enables other diverse applications that include: Managing higher levels of renewable power, grid stabilization, peak demand management and controlling energy flow. By enabling better asset utilization and overall system management, customers can realize new revenue opportunities and cost savings as well.
