How Battery Energy Storage Systems are speeding up the green energy transition.

By using batteries to store electrical energy, Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) can help us decarbonise our grids and balance the intermittent nature of renewable energy sources like wind and solar power. 

What is a battery storage facility?

Battery Energy Storage Systems store extra electricity when there’s not much demand and release it when demand is high. They can also provide backup power during outages or help keep the grid stable during high demand.

Batteries are an efficient and effective means of energy storage. They can store electrical energy as chemical energy and quickly convert it back to electrical power as needed, making them ideal for energy storage systems. Additionally, batteries offer a high degree of scalability, making it possible to design BESS that meet the specific needs of any application, from single homes to entire cities.

Why Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) batteries are the sustainable choice for BESS.

We are proud to soon produce the most sustainable batteries in the world, made in Norway. Our focus for BESS is on delivering Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) batteries that are safe, durable, and as sustainably made as possible.

LFP batteries have a high cycle life, making them a reliable and long-lasting energy storage solution. They also have high safety and thermal stability, making them a safer option for energy storage applications. Their low self-discharge rate means they can retain their charge for extended periods without losing significant amounts of energy. This makes them ideal for backup power applications, where energy storage systems may need to be relied upon for extended periods of time.

Finally, LFP batteries are a cost-effective option for energy storage, as they are made from abundant and low-cost materials, making them a good choice for large BESS projects, like ones used for storing energy on a large scale for the power grid.

Overall, the combination of high cycle life, safety, low self-discharge, and cost-effectiveness make LFP the ideal cell chemistry for BESS.
