Li-Ion Batteries

Lithium-ion batteries are a type of rechargeable battery typically found in mobile phones, computers and also in electric cars. They are popular for their high energy density, low level of self-discharge and long service life. However, the biggest disadvantage is flammability; theycan catch fire or even explode under the wrong conditions. For this reason, you will not find such batteries in FUERGY technologies.

LiFePO4 Batteries

Lithium-iron phosphate batteries have a high energy density, long life and are able to discharge energy faster than traditional lead-acid batteries. This makes them very popular for use in battery storage. Compared to Li-Ion batteries, LiFe are non-flammable and therefore much safer for use in building interiors. LiFePO4 batteries are used in all FUERGY energy storage solutions.

Local distribution system (LDS)

A distribution system with no more than 100,000 delivery points connected. An LDS is usually connected to the superior regional distribution system. LDS operations in the energy sector require a state permit.

Low-carbon economy

A low-carbon economy is an economy that relies on energy sources with low emission of greenhouse gasses. The main goal of a low-carbon economy is to protect the environment and prevent long-term climate changes that could negatively impact human society and natural ecosystems. This model promotes the use of renewable energy sources, energy efficiency, and innovative technologies that reduce the carbon footprint.
