Power Factors recently released support for the emerging class of utility-scale battery energy storage system assets in its Drive platform, empowering owners and operators to manage all their clean energy assets, including storage of all sizes, from a single unified platform.

Power Factors’ battery energy storage system (BESS) offering introduces new functionality that enables asset owners and operators to manage state-of-health performance against warranties, view state-of-charge analytics and track battery cycles. Native integration with Power Factors’ enterprise asset management system provides an end-to-end solution for managing all energy storage operations, maintenance and asset management tasks. Future releases for BESS in the Drive platform include advanced analytics, digital twin virtual models and dispatch schedule optimization tools.

Arevon partnered with Power Factors to onboard its Saticoy energy storage site into the Drive asset performance management platform. The 100-MW site — one of the largest energy storage systems operating in North America — is a utility-scale, transmission-grade storage project in Southern California Edison’s service territory and is the first of three similarly-sized assets Arevon will manage using Drive this year.

“Power Factors is our preferred partner because they understand our business and collaborate with us to develop the solutions we need to compete successfully in this emerging space. Saticoy is the first of three large-scale storage sites coming online with Arevon this year, making it more important than ever to be able to manage all our assets from a single unified platform. We’re excited for them to bring their best-in-class data management and analytics to this new asset class,” said Anand Narayanan, VP of asset management at Arevon.
