Flex, the Sketch-to-Scale™ solutions provider that designs and builds intelligent products for a connected world, has just launched a new technological advancement that addresses a solution to the issue of integrating wind and solar power into an energy grid.
The latest innovation, Advanced Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) is billed as an important step in aiding the renewable energy sector by storing energy when production exceeds demand and by providing services, such as frequency control, to the grid.
The solution announced through a press release by Flex can support multiple cells and is designed in a way which can help to maximize energy and power density of BESS deployments.
“In designing our energy storage solution, we stressed ease-of-installation, minimizing complexity and facilitating rapid deployments,” said Scott Graybeal, senior vice president of Flex Energy Solutions.
Designed to maximize energy
“By introducing a standardized, cost-effective and easily-deployed solution, we are enabling wide-scale implementation, with the hopes of further stimulating growth of the renewable energy industry.”
Flex collaborated with Renewable Energy Systems (RES) – one of the top battery energy storage integrators and renewable energy companies in North America to help engineer this energy solution.
Battery Energy Storage Solution: Breaking Ground
This means Flex has completed the first ever successful deployment of an energy storage solution for the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) at its National Wind Technology Center (NWTC) in Boulder, Colorado.
