Growing energy demands combined with the desire for renewable energy sources continue to drive demand for battery energy storage systems (BESS) throughout North America. Robinson’s decades of experience fabricating and fully integrating packaged systems simplifies customers’ process of sourcing battery energy storage systems.
Battery energy storage systems capture and store energy from renewable sources such as wind and solar, and then releases the stored power when it is needed most. Lithium-ion batteries, the most common choice for energy storage solutions, are housed inside custom metal enclosures to protect them from the elements.
Our team’s ability to support virtually every aspect of battery energy storage systems development enables Robinson to serve as a single point of contact for our customers. This streamlines a process that otherwise can involve multiple service providers, leading to delays and communication challenges. Among our areas of expertise are:
- Automation and controls
- Factory acceptance testing (FAT)
- Systems integration
- Packaged skids shipments
Battery energy storage systems offer peak shaving abilities
A key aspect of ROI for battery energy storage systems comes from the ability to discharge energy to the grid during high-cost peak hours of the day. Peak shaving strategies like this reduce energy bills to consumers and deliver cost-effective opportunities for utility companies seeking to manage peak demand periods.
Microgrids, independent energy systems common in more isolated areas, often rely on battery energy storage systems to deliver a reliable energy supply. A variety of businesses and institutions also integrate microgrids into their energy portfolio to achieve greater independence from the grid and generate renewable energy credits.
Intelligent battery management systems use algorithms to balance energy production with timely release of stored energy. Our automation and controls group ensures the battery energy storage systems we produce are fully integrated and functional during the FAT phase of production. This capability is a key reason why so many customers rely on Robinson to dropship integrated enclosures directly to job site.
