Our contribution to the energy transition
At Uniper, innovation is aimed at improving existing business areas on the one hand, and on the other, developing new areas of business to the point where they can be transferred to existing or new business units. Such tasks are the responsibility of the Uniper Innovation Center ‘Grid Scale Storage’. The Uniper Innovation Center is divided into different innovation areas which operate within existing business units.
After all, the expansion of fluctuating renewable electricity production from wind and solar energy, as well as variable consumption, makes energy storage imperative for the future. In years to come energy storage technologies will make a growing contribution to the energy system. The benefits of storage are particularly evident when it comes to providing power generated from wind and solar resources in the form of electricity, heat or gas at a suitable point in time. Energy storage systems therefore are crucial to the efficient use of energy in an increasingly distributed energy system spanning different industries. Synergies with industry and mobility reduce costs and make a further contribution to climate protection.
The Power to Gas topic has been allocated to Uniper Energy Storage. Activities like these make a major contribution to the energy transition.
