Critical Power Expo interviewed Nuvation Energy CEO Michael Worry, to learn what inspired him to start an energy storage solutions engineering firm, after 20 years of providing complex electronic design services to a broad range markets.
At Nuvation Energy, we love electric vehicles. We also like saving money. That’s why we built BESSIE. BESSIE is a grid-connected energy storage system that we made using second-life Nissan Leaf batteries and Nuvation battery management system.
If you have worked with or looked at battery systems, you have most likely heard of a battery management system or BMS. The term BMS refers to a wide variety of electronic devices that monitor and protect the battery in some way.
Many systems use batteries for power backup, spanning from several hundred watts for short-term desktop-PC backup, to thousands of watts for specialty vehicles, up to hundreds of kilowatts for grid-scale telecom and data-center backup.
Nuvation Energy announces that their new 11-60 VDC battery management system for applications such as commercial and residential behind-the-meter energy storage, telecom/datacom backup systems, and specialty vehicles begins shipping.
Nuvation launches new brand providing electronic hardware and software solutions for large-scale battery energy storage. We bring over 20 years of power engineering design experience to the industry as well as a field-deployed 4th generation BMS.
Stalwart Power selected Nuvation Energy's BMS to manage their Battery Energy Storage Solution (BESS) for grid-attached and behind-the-meter energy management. Nuvation's BMS was selected due to its design for utility-scale applications.
Alevo selected Nuvation Energy's battery management system to manage their lithium-ion based GridBank containerized energy storage systems. Alevo’s deployment will provide more than 200MW of available power to utility grids.
What makes an ideal battery management system? The first thing is safety. There are many videos and articles out there that show lithium-based batteries venting and/or bursting into flames when pushed past their operating limits.
