Storage pioneer partners with the world’s leading provider of modular, mobile power
Aggreko is excited to announce its £40m agreement to acquire Younicos, a global market leader in the development and deployment of integrated energy systems, based on battery storage. This acquisition strengthens our position as global energy markets continue to evolve and is in line with our strategy to invest in technology in order to reduce the cost of energy for our customers.
Younicos delivers smart energy solutions integrating battery storage, which are modular and scalable. Its knowledge of batteries combined with proprietary control systems, enables the seamless integration and management of all forms of power, including thermal, renewable and battery energy resources; this is becoming critical in an increasingly distributed energy market.
Global energy markets are changing: decarbonising and becoming more decentralised and digital. As renewables penetration increases, intermittency becomes a more difficult issue to manage across grid systems. Integration and control of thermal, renewable and battery systems will be increasingly required to ensure power stability and reliability are maintained. Off grid and microgrid energy solutions are ever more integrating renewable generation, whilst industrial and commercial customers are also taking advantage of opportunities for renewable integration and demand-side management.
