Battery storage

Battery storage, often referred to as large-capacity battery storage, accumulator storage or battery energy storage system (BESS), is device used to store electrical energy produced anywhere including from renewable sources such as solar panels. Stored energy can then be used when renewable sources are not available to produce electricity. In the case of solar energy, in the morning or evening hours for example.

An advanced type of battery storage is smart battery storage. Such storage is equipped with advanced technology to manage and optimize its performance and efficiency. These systems include intelligent software platforms to manage the charging and discharging of batteries based on current energy demand, energy prices or the state of the power grid.
