In 2018, the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) committed to meeting 23 percent of its primary energy needs from renewable sources by 2025. This target has encouraged the region to leverage its abundant wind and solar resources as a means of reducing its reliance on fossil fuels. This latest W√§rtsil√§ energy storage project will help provide the flexibility and reliability required in supporting the region’s transition to renewable energy, and to deliver important grid support as electricity demand increases along with economic development.
W√§rtsil√§’s GEMS platform can react almost instantaneously to smooth the integration of renewables, thereby enabling the grid to become more responsive and stable. With GEMS, grid operators can rely on renewables for baseload power. W√§rtsil√§ has a strong presence in South East Asia with a total installed capacity above 9000 MW of which 2000 MW were executed as EPC delivery including approximately 300 MW of energy storage.
