“Today, wind and solar come closest to meeting the growing demand for these clean energy sources. That said, the issue of renewable volatility is still a major concern, making it tough for system operators to consistently balance the electrical supply.”
“We’re delighted the EnergyAware Solution has been recognised for its contribution to powering cities of the future. Eaton identified this issue a number of years’ ago and have been working ever since to create innovative energy storage technologies that help power smarter, cleaner cities by increasing the amount of renewables on the grid through providing much needed stability, whilst still providing a commercial benefit.”
This is the second year in a row Eaton has won the BusinessGreen Future City Technology of the Year Award. In 2018, Eaton won the category for its work on the largest European energy storage system using second-life and new electric vehicle batteries in a commercial building at the Johan Cruijff ArenA in Amsterdam.
