Power and thermal management solutions provider Delta Electronics, has launched new Battery Energy Storage Solution (BESS), designed for smart grid applications to optimize home energy balance.
The energy-saving solution is complementary with renewable energy production systems in smart grids, and helps managing energy demand to ultimately reduce or defer the overall costs of grid investment and power dispatch.
Delta developed this innovative energy storage system designed for smart grid applications to optimize home energy balance. The system serves as an ‘energy reservoir’ for electricity generated from the photovoltaic (PV) module. The electricity which is stored in the batteries in the system can either be used by the household when there is no sunlight, or be fed into the grid when there is surplus energy.
Jackie Chang, president and general manager, Delta said: “The system showed a significant reduction of grid power purchase. This new flexible and modular system helps managing energy in a grid including intermittent energy sources, such as solar energy. With this new solution, Delta contributes to smarter and greener energy management”.
The energy storage and management system is designed to be modular and flexible in configuration. It can optimize energy consumption and power dispatch according to customer profiles. Besides, it increases the utilization of renewable energy such as the existing rooftop PV installation and reduce electricity bills by load shifting and avoiding high electricity tariffs.
The BESS system is a home energy system consisting of a complete Delta composition, including rectifier, charger, micro-inverter, Li-ion battery, controller, sensor module and an energy management system, which can be remotely-controlled via mobile device. The Delta BESS system will be available on market in 2015.
