Alevo selected Nuvation Energy's battery management system to manage the batteries in their 2 MW /1MWh energy storage system. A key reason they chose Nuvation Energy's BMS is because it can measure battery cells from 0 volts and accurately manage the charging process from 0% to 100%. Managing this charging process requires highly accurate current readings and a level of precision that most battery management systems cannot provide. Alevo's high energy density cells had 99% availability and could be safely discharged to zero volts.
Today the Alevo Gridbank ESS pictured here continues to provide frequency regulation services to the PJM interconnect. Nuvation Energy's Multi-Stack Controller provides parallel stack management and enables servicing of individual battery stacks without taking down the ESS.
