The Basic accumulator stores a limited amount of energy when available production exceeds demand, and releases it in the opposite case. The basic accumulator stores up to 5 MJ of energy. Charge/Discharge rate is 300 kW maximum.

Req. Technology: Electric energy accumulators |-

See How to switch off steam engines in the night, when enough accumulator capacity is available?

  • When discharged above maximum speed by multiple unconnected poles, will distribute energy unequally (some may get 100% demand, others 0%)
  • May be used to provide limited amount of power (multiples of maximum charge rate) to a section of the grid
  • Produces light when charging and discharging
