World's first large-capacity electric energy storage system and a major leap forward in capacity to provide a stable supply of renewable energy
Drawing on original, highly advanced ceramic technologies, we at NGK were the world's first to commercialize a NAS battery system with the capacity to handle megawatts of electricity.
This NAS battery system boasted an array of superior features, including high capacity, high energy density, and long life.
It's capable of maintaining high electric power output for extended periods, despite being one-third the size of conventional lead batteries.
NAS batteries are ideal for reducing peak electricity use, charging at night when demand is low, and providing power during peak times in the day.
Moreover, the NAS battery system can be used as an emergency power supply during power outages and momentary voltage drops.
NAS batteries can temporarily store and release energy from weather-sensitive power sources like wind and solar power generators, helping to stabilize the supply.
As such, they're drawing interest around the world as useful storage components for the continuing growth of renewable energy and the establishment of next-generation smart-grid transmission networks.
Uncompromising quality and advanced technologies:That's why our insulators are selected to sustain power supply the world over.
By ensuring that transmission lines and steel towers and equipment are completely isolated, insulators play a crucial role in maintaining the safety and stability of our energy lifelines.
Given the magnitude of their task--even the slightest defect can have dramatic consequences--insulators must be reliable beyond doubt.
NGK Insulators, we're insulator specialists; since the company's inception in 1919, we've consistently developed our own unique technologies and created products with the durability and quality needed to perform, even in harsh environments subject to earthquakes, typhoons, and heavy snowfall.
Among the world-beating products we've developed and made are the world's strongest insulators for UHV (1 million volts) power transmission and bushings based on the world's largest hollow insulators.
We also boast the world's largest production capacity--something that comes in handy when your products are used in at least 100 countries.
Backed by uncompromising quality and advanced technologies, our products continue to make power supply both safe and secure.
