BATTERY ENERGY STORAGE SYSTEMS

WHAT IS A BATTERY STORAGE SYSTEM?

A Battery Energy Storage System (or BESS for short) is a way of storing electricity by using specially developed batteries. Essentially, the storage system captures energy and stores it so that it can be used at a later time.

Recent advances in battery technology have helped to make Battery Energy Storage System a commercial reality for businesses needing energy storage.

BATTERY ENERGY STORAGE WITH SOLAR

When installing solar panels, a battery energy storage system can be added. Instead of sending excess electricity produced by solar back into the grid, the energy can be stored in a battery and then used to reduce peak demand, or used as backup power during load shedding or power cuts.

A BESS system paired with solar makes an ideal load-shedding solution. And Peak Shaving – reducing a company’s peak demand for electricity by switching to the battery system at peak times – can help a company further reduce their electricity bills.

Modern battery energy storage systems generally include a built-in inverter and computerised control systems. This ensures systems are essentially maintenance and effort free.

TECHNOLOGY ADVANCES OFFERED BY M SQUARED

There are many rapidly evolving innovations in the Battery Energy Storage space at the moment. Increased interest in this technology, along with more competition has led to a number of advances and improvements.

Until recently, the global standard for energy storage has been based on a bank of Lead Acid batteries coupled to an inverter and a rectifier to provide AC power. Today, the market has begun to shift away from Lead Acids and a move towards more efficient storage cells.
