Energy Storage Systems

Helping to compensate for changes in electrical demand and improve grid reliability and stability

In the coming years, renewable energy and energy storage will significantly grow in importance. Umicore produces materials specifically designed for the requirements of stationary storage systems. Our products help to compensate for imperfections in the energy mix, improving grid reliability and stability.

Li-ion batteries are an important means to store energy. Besides the pure storage function, ESS helps to compensate the imperfections in the energy mix and improves grid reliability and stability. Consequently, this application will give an additional push to the Li-ion market.

Umicore is a trusted partner in this segment. We collaborate with several academic partners as well as industrial integrators and utility companies on projects focused on grid stabilization, back-up power and home energy storage systems for domestic solar panel applications. We can fall back on extensive market knowledge and expertise within the Umicore group. For many years, we have been developing and commercializing electro-optical materials for solar panels.

We offer a dedicated NMC material that we believe to be an excellent trade-off between the different ESS requirements.
