Energy Storage System

The mtu EnergyPack battery storage system maximizes energy utilization, improving the reliability and profitability of your microgrid.

Economic growth and growing populations are pushing up electricity demand across the world. Governments and industry are moving away from conventional power plants toward distributed renewable energies, creating challenges for historically centralized grid systems. The mtu EnergyPack is a perfect answer to this changing energy environment, enabling existing power systems to adapt to current trends.

It is creating a range of possibilities involving renewable energy sources such as solar and wind power – all aimed at creating sustainable power delivery systems that are ready for the future. Whether you need a fully autonomous off-grid facility or simply want to manage your power supplies more efficiently – such as engaging in peak shaving, load-shifting or grid stabilization – the mtu EnergyPack is a scalable, all-in-one solution that provides reliable power anytime, anywhere.  

Whatever the capacity, the mtu EnergyPack is the reliable storage solution for microgrids and energy systems.

The mtu EnergyPack is a key component for improving the reliability and profitability of microgrids and energy systems. It stores electricity from any distributed power source – such as gensets, wind turbines or solar panels – and delivers it when needed. The mtu EnergyPack is available in three sizes: QS, QM, and QL, from 60 kVA to 2,000 kVA, and from 70 kWh to 2,200 kWh.

So whatever power and capacity you need, the mtu EnergyPack is the perfect storage solution for your energy needs.

The interiors of the containerized housings are divided into sections – some with outside air contact and some without – to keep the sensitive electrics and batteries protected from any pollution. The mtu EnergyPack QG with scalable capacities up to several hundred megawatt hours offers individual configuration options, for example for energy suppliers or energy trading.

Power density

Thanks to the extremely compact battery system designs and the small footprint of the housings, the mtu EnergyPack is the ideal solution for projects with logistical restrictions and limited space.

Digitally connected

The mtu EnergyPack is equipped with a data logger providing access to our digital solutions, including remote monitoring, fast and reliable service support and – coming soon –operational optimization.

Multilevel safety

A multilevel safety concept monitors and ensures safe operation of batteries, inverters and HVAC systems. The outstanding fire and explosion protection system detects smoke and explosive gases.

Black start

The battery energy storage system (BESS) can be used as a black start unit. It performs black starts without auxiliary voltage, and can form an autonomous grid.

Scalable in size

Storage capacity and type of battery rating can easily be adapted, whatever your individual power and capacity requirements.

Ultra-fast response

By bringing power on-stream immediately, the mtu EnergyPack provides essential fast response capability for power quality, black starts, frequency response, and backup applications.

Flexible use

The mtu EnergyPack can accept customer setpoints or be upgraded with the mtu microgrid controller to support various applications.

Plug-and-play

The mtu EnergyPack comes factory-tested onsite. The highly mobile, fully integrated plug-and-play design ensures fast, easy installation, reducing setup time and costs. Power is available more quickly, and at lower cost.

Compact, flexible, autonomous.

Instant power wherever you need it.

mtu EnergyPack QG

The large-scale storage solution mtu EnergyPack QG is a scalable battery storage system for capacities from a few to several hundred megawatt hours. Battery cabinets, transformers, inverters, switchgear and the intelligent control system mtu EnergetIQ can be flexibly configured. The mtu EnergyPack QG is suitable for grid services, energy trading and the integration of renewable energies, among other things.

mtu EnergyPack QL

The mtu EnergyPack QL is designed for customer applications with power and capacity requirements  of  up to 2,000 kVA and 2,200 kWh and above (multiple units). It is suitable for integrating solar assets  and wind parks, and for  providing  frequency regulation and other ancillary services in the utilities sector. It is  housed in  a standard 40 ft high cube ISO container.

mtu EnergyPack QS

The mtu EnergyPack QS is designed for customer applications with power and capacity requirements of  up to 400 kVA and 550 kWh.  It is suitable for off-grid solutions, for reducing  fuel dependence in small remote communities, and for enabling own-consumption  of  solar power  in the commercial  and  public sectors. It is enclosed in a compact housing.

Multiple Applications

Grid & utility service provider

The mtu EnergyPack can take care of frequency regulation, manage grid congestion and allow the avoidance of significant investment in grid infrastructure, for example to enable a scale-up of electric vehicle charging. It will also make solar and wind power more reliable and instantly dispatchable, while enabling gas or diesel power plants to operate more efficiently when combined with the mtu EnergyPack.

Commercial

Facilities with onsite generation such as solar arrays or combined heat and power (CHP) plants can increase their own-use consumption by adding an mtu EnergyPack to take advantage of time-of-day electricity tariffs by shifting their power draws. If needed, backup power capability can also be provided.

Industrial

Remote industrial operations currently running on diesel power with no grid connections can reduce their fuel consumption and meet legal or company environmental standards more easily by integrating renewable sources with an mtu EnergyPack. When connected to the public grid, the mtu EnergyPack helps reduce demand charges and increase own-use consumption of existing onsite generation to mitigate rising energy costs.

Community

The mtu EnergyPack increases the self-sufficiency of urban areas with local power generation, and provides reliable backup power in the event of grid failure. In areas unconnected to the public grid, adding an mtu EnergyPack to a local microgrid ensures high quality power supplies and allows the integration of renewable energies to reduce carbon footprint and save fuel.

Public sector

Where a grid connection is not reliable, the mtu EnergyPack increases security and quality of supply for public facilities. Stability of existing power plants can be improved by spinning reserve from the mtu EnergyPack, and solar arrays can be built in to reduce fuel consumption. If grid-connected, own-use of solar power can be increased to lower the amount of power drawn from the grid.
