From Chemistry to Electricity
Bridging the Energy Gap and Lowering Carbon Intensity
BESS Integrates with The Grid
Intermittent renewables like wind and solar need a reliable back up — and high-capacity BESS bridge the gap. BESS can also be used to create new revenue streams through peak shaving or generate energy savings by capitalizing on the volatility of the electricity market.
BESS Enhances Microgrids
Isolated microgrids perform better with BESS by buffering generation from multiple energy sources. Customers and communities can maximize efficiencies and minimize carbon intensity.
BESS is Simple: Charge, Discharge and Support the Grid
The idea behind BESS is simple. Battery cells are charged with electricity from the grid or microgrid when power is abundant and inexpensive. The energy is stored until electricity is scarce, expensive, and urgently needed. Then the batteries are discharged.
BESS can discharge its energy over 1, 2 or 4 hours. C ratings of 1.0C, 0.5C and 0.25C describe the ratio between output over energy storage capacity. For example, a 1 MW power discharge from 2 MWh of energy storage capacity is a 0.5C BESS.
