Tokyo-based electronics company Hitachi Ltd. says it has developed a 1 MW, all-in-one, container-type energy storage system as a core energy product for ensuring the stable use of distributed renewable energy, such as wind and solar power, while maintaining power supply-demand balance.

Hitachi notes that the energy storage system - dubbed CrystEna - fuses Hitachi Group's electricity grid control technologies and Hitachi Chemical Co. Ltd.'s lithium-ion batteries and will be offered as a packaged system.

In the beginning of 2014, Hitachi plans to begin a demonstration test of the energy storage system in North America to verify its commercial viability and performance.
