“Did you know that storing energy using batteries is one of the most efficient ways to utilize electrical energy? Over the past decades, batteries with greater capacity have been developed for use as electrical energy storage devices and incorporated into innovative systems with cutting-edge technology, such as Quartux.

What are electrical devices that store energy?

Among the main electrical devices that store energy are capacitors, which store static or resting charges, and coils or inductors, which are passive components of an electrical circuit where energy is stored through induction.

Other very important energy storage devices due to their use and operation are batteries. The most common ones are lead-acid, nickel-cadmium, and lithium-ion batteries (or Li-ion).

Industrial lithium batteries are electrical devices that store energy in systems that are setting trends for the future, such as the Quartux platform, which allows storing energy for use during peak hours of CFE and generating energy savings with economic benefits for companies and industries.

Industrial batteries: energy and economic savings

The Quartux industrial battery system modifies the consumption of customers by charging electrical energy during off-peak hours and discharging it during peak hours. With this, it not only allows the customer to save but also protects their business from blackouts with stored energy, shielding their business from electrical interruptions.

Furthermore, the Quartux intelligent energy storage system can be installed in all types of industries and users of the electricity market. It is an excellent option for shopping malls, hotels, universities, hospitals, and all those users who are charged with hourly rates by CFE and who pay very high electricity bills due to their consumption during peak hours.

What do we mean by “peak hours”? Electricity costs vary throughout the year according to the region of the country, day, and time. During peak hours, energy consumption is lower, but the cost of the electricity bill increases by 30% to 40%. Therefore, a company that has a higher demand for energy from the grid pays higher costs for the energy used during “peak” periods, which are usually the busiest hours. Commercial and industrial consumers are charged demand fees during peak hours.

Quartux: the best system for storing and saving electrical energy

At Quartux, we use industrial lithium batteries as devices that store electrical energy and design the installation of the electrical storage project according to the needs of each customer. The installation is quick and operates intelligently through control software. Our system helps save up to 40% on the electricity bill and allows real-time monitoring of its operation and the energy parameters of customers in real-time.

The Quartux platform for energy storage is an innovative and cost-effective system, as it imposes charging limits that prevent system degradation and allow its service life to be at least 15 years. Additionally, we provide all our customers with a 10-year warranty from installation, and when the service life of the lithium-ion cell batteries ends, we offer module replacements to upgrade their service.

Industrial lithium-ion batteries: the energy future

Lithium-ion batteries are the future of the energy and energy storage sector. The use of these devices to store electrical energy has increased over the past few years due to their significant advantages, such as excellent charging speed, energy storage in smaller spaces, higher energy density, and longer life cycle. In short, lithium-ion batteries have higher performance for a longer period.

Lithium-ion batteries are 30% more efficient than traditional lead-acid batteries and have greater resistance and power for heavy-duty work. These batteries are examples of how energy storage devices are a specialized solution for all types of companies. Additionally, they do not emit gases, thus avoiding additional costs that systems such as ventilation can incur.

Electricity savings with capacitors

Another electrical device that stores energy is capacitors. These electrical capacitors have the ability to store reactive energy, i.e., surplus energy produced by industrial motors, and distribute it to convert it into electrical energy that can be consumed. This electrical energy storage device allows for energy savings and, therefore, helps reduce the amount of the electricity bill.

Capacitors are useful in industrial sector companies where large amounts of reactive energy are produced. In this sense, they can mean electricity savings as well as savings on your electricity bill.”
