With over 45 years’ expertise in energy conversion and more than 90 years in electrical protections, Socomec is now launching Energy Storage System (ESS) for on grid and off grid application with typical loads between 33 kW and 1 MW.

What is Socomec’s Energy Storage Solution? Socomec solution offers all the components of an ESS: batteries (lithium-ion and lead-acid), AC and DC protections and distribution cabinets (using Socomec wide products range), Power Conversion Systems SUNSYS PCS² and control systems. In case of microgrid applications with several sources of energy (Grid, Diesel Genset, Energy Storage…), Socomec also provides a paralleling cabinet to connect and synchronize these sources and to ensure continuity and quality of supply

Three frames of SUNSYS PCS² are available, with a power of 33, 66 or 100 KVA per unit. It is a scalable solution that can be put in parallel to reach MW scale installations, such as in the USA where the UL version is used in the largest indoor ESS installation. The SUNSYS PCS² can work with or without a grid connection. In case there is no grid, the SUNSYS PCS² IM for Islanding Mode will act as a voltage generator for the microgrid.

DHYBRID, the leading German solution provider for PV hybrid, energy storage and smart-grid projects, has announced its partnership with QOS Energy, the data intelligence cloud specialist, to monitor PV hybrid and energy storage plants. DHYBRID will benefit from the versatility of QOS Energy’s monitoring software, which is unique in its ability to aggregate data from all types of energy sources onto one single analytics platform.

ABB’s new REACT 2 inverter and energy storage solution includes a high-voltage Li-ion battery with a long life and a storage capacity of up to 12 kWh. The modular solution can grow with the needs of any household from 4 kWh to 12 kWh and significantly reduce electricity charges thanks to an achievable energy self-reliance of up to 90 percent.

Hurricane Maria swept through Puerto Rico over 90 days ago and many residents are still without power making this the longest major blackout in U.S. history. Officials have estimated it could take four to six months to restore the power grid to full functionality. Schneider Electric is supporting the rebuild of several major solar and energy storage plants and aiding the locals by rapidly deploying off-grid products to regain power to their homes.

Small-scale, grid-connected energy storage solutions – or “community batteries” – can have a viable business case, supporting the ongoing growth of decentralized energy generation resources. This is one of the key findings of a feasibility study published today by DNV GL, based on work by an industry-wide consortium that includes energy storage firm Alfen and flexibility aggregator Peeeks. The study finds that – given current costs for lithium-ion battery technology and grid expansion projects – community storage can be both economically and socially viable. Furthermore, it outlines a decision-making framework to help grid operators and other stakeholders identify and optimize business models and revenue streams for community storage in any market.
