Large-scale energy storage solution provider LS Energy Solutions has released a new AC-coupled lithium energy storage system called AiON-ESS. The solution is available in two models for one-hour and two- to four-hour applications.
“The AiON-ESS builds on our previous-generation solution to provide our customers with a factory-produced and integrated product that eliminates the need for complex on-site labor. The AiON-ESS container includes everything needed for fast and seamless installation, while the different storage configurations can meet a variety of energy needs,” said Steve Fludder, CEO of LS Energy Solutions.
The AiON-ESS Power Series is for one-hour applications, and the AiON-ESS Energy Series is for two- to four-hour applications. Both models combine the company’s fourth-generation String Inverter System (SIS) with lithium-ion batteries in a modular format that enables configurations for a number of applications. The two models offer flexibility for applications that range from smaller-scale C&I storage systems to multi-hundred-megawatt utility applications.
In addition to its innovative String Inverter System architecture, the AiON-ESS includes LS-ES’s comprehensive Energy Management System (EMS), a software solution that maximizes the benefit of energy storage in supporting all possible operating modes, from basic power quality control for grid interface to fully automated energy management controls. The company says it contracts with Tier 1 battery manufacturers, but does not disclose what chemistry.
