One Stop Solution of Power Storage Facilities

Energy Storage Facilities at the Core of the Electricity Market


Expanding Need for Energy Storage Facilities in Recent Years

Power Storage Facilities

In recent years, the Japanese government has established a policy of power system reform and is promoting the introduction of power generation from renewable energy sources that contribute to reducing the burden on the environment. On the other hand, the ability of renewable energy to stably generate electricity is an issue, and it is necessary to control energy resources by charging and discharging through energy storage facilities. In addition, there is a growing need to introduce energy storage facilities for the purpose of adjusting the supply and demand of electricity in virtual power plants (VPPs) and for BCP measures during disasters.

* Virtual power plant (VPP): A system that provides the same functions as a power plant by controlling energy resources such as storage batteries owned by businesses.


Providing Energy Storage Facilities through One-stop Service

In Europe, where the electric power market is more advanced than in Japan, NK has been developing business with focus on energy storage facilities.
