BESS – A Battery Energy Storage System.
Our flagship energy storage container, providing power when you need it most.

A Containerized Battery Energy Storage System.

Powin Energy’s Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) is a complete energy storage system that integrates battery storage, advanced battery management, power conversion (both charging and generation), and energy management in a fully integrated, turnkey solution. With the ability to monitor and manage the system remotely from an ordinary web browser, BESS provides a scalable, cost-effective, reliable and versatile energy storage solution for a wide range of energy generation, distribution and consumption applications.

BESS has a modular and scalable architecture that supports using best-of-breed energy storage and conversion solutions. The versatile architecture with system-level integration makes it possible to customize BESS to accommodate unique needs, enabling the system to integrate more easily with and operate dependably in virtually any existing power system.

Energy Storage

Being architecturally agnostic with respect to energy storage makes it possible to utilize any battery technology, and Powin currently uses Lithium Ion Phosphate chemistry configured into 3kWh battery packs. This technology affords the energy density, rapid charging and other characteristics needed in demanding applications, and is also guaranteed to deliver low-maintenance service for 10 years.

Power Conversion

The power conversion system (PCS) provides both battery charging (AC to DC) and power generation (DC to AC) in a single unit. Being architecturally agnostic with respect to power conversion enables BESS to be optimized for different use cases. For example, the commercial and industrial (C&I) configurations are designed to provide highly efficient DC charging to restore generating capacity cost-effectively. The PCS also has a fully adjustable power factor (zero to unity) with priority given to power rating, and supports positive, negative or neutral AC grounding.

“Lower costs, improved technology, and the advent of transparent energy markets have spurred an energy storage renaissance.”

- Dr. Ramteen Sioshansi, Ohio State University

BESS on the road

BESS is configurable to match your power and energy needs. We tailor the final solution through comprehensive analysis and full understanding of the unique energy problems that each of our customers face.

We deploy energy storage in various power and battery capacity configurations, scalable to multi-megawatt systems that can supply partial to several hours of charge and discharge. As your power and energy demand grows, BESS can be scaled to keep pace, allowing for continual expansion that adapts to need rather than forced large upfront commitments.

Applicable to any situation, BESS is a versatile energy storage solution. Whether your need is voltage regulation, peak demand reduction, enhancing the quality of renewable energy supply or balancing generation and demand, there is now BESS system that maximizes the returns for any power and infrastructure investment.

Flexible to need, BESS is capable of automatically dispatching multiple use cases at various times per day. BESS prioritizes which use case will generate the most economic benefit to ensure optimum results for our customers. BESS extends the accessibility of quality electricity to the most remote regions of the world and can even add value to the most developed of energy networks.
