BESS Container

A battery energy storage system (BESS) stores energy for later use. It may be charged from the grid or from a renewable energy source like a solar or wind installation. The market for grid-scale battery storage is currently dominated by lithium-iron batteries. Other options, each with its own pros and cons, include lead-acid, redox and molten-salt batteries.

Utility-Scale Battery Storage Systems

Utility-scale battery storage is a straightforward and comparatively inexpensive way to integrate higher levels of variable renewable energy (VRE) in grid systems. Battery-based energy storage makes it possible to store solar or wind energy for use when it’s most needed. This may be at times of peak demand or when grid power supply is disrupted. It can help reduce the need to build additional backup power plants and improve system flexibility.

Utility-scale battery storage costs

The cost of grid-scale battery storage has dropped steadily over the past decade.  According to a Bloomberg report, the average price of lithium-iron batteries fell by 73% just between 2010 and 2016 (Curry, 2017) – and prices continue to drop.

Now, REVOV’s 2nd LiFE batteries are making lithium iron utility battery storage even more affordable. 2nd LiFE batteries are automotive-grade lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries, repurposed as stationary energy storage systems after use in electronic vehicles (EVs).

Because these batteries use superior lithium iron phosphate technology, they offer exceptional life span and energy efficiency as part of their “second lives”. However, they’re much more affordable than other lithium iron batteries.

Featured Products

Cube 800

REVOV CUBE 800 pre-programmed inverter pre-connected batteries and BMS, a 6kW inverter with 7800W MPPT. The entire unit contains all the necessary wiring and correct fusing, thereby making it quick to install and easy to store.
