Electricity storage around 1902
Peak load capping with electricity storage around 1902

Between 1902 and 1929, an electricity storage system was used to operate the Bremgarten Dietikon Railway. At that time, the railroad drew energy from the Bruggmühle hydroelectric power station. In the winter months, the water level of the Reuss was often too low for sufficient power production. During the night, the 123Ah 1C storage tank was charged in order to power the railroad during the day via the

Emergency power for wastewater treatment plants thanks to BHKW
Emergency power for sewage treatment plants thanks to combined heat and power unit BHKW

Combined heat and power plants (CHP) with gas engines are state of the art at wastewater treatment plants. From the sewage gas (renewable energy), these proven systems generate electricity and heat for the wastewater treatment plants' own needs. The fuel input is utilized up to 100%. In the future, the use of the grid replacement function in case of a grid failure will play an important role Small wastewater treatment plants of municipalities or municipal associations have
