Whether you are looking for application-specific energy management software, battery pack design, stack design solutions, or a turnkey energy storage system, our team of energy storage engineers can create the solutions you require.
Battery Stack Design
In the energy storage industry even the best battery becomes less attractive if the cost of integrating it into an energy storage system is too high. Cost drivers include cables, connectors, thermal management requirements, pack configuration, sense wire integration, and more. For battery manufacturers, being able to provide off-the-shelf battery stack solutions is often key to being selected for a large-scale project. For ESS developers, the deployment of optimized stack solutions lowers project costs and makes the most efficient use of available space. Nuvation Energy engineers design cost- and performance- optimized stack solutions that simplify the integration of different battery configurations into an energy storage system.
Energy Management Controllers
An energy storage system is simply a large battery until it is connected to a power source and a load, and managed by software that executes its intended functions. Energy storage system components can include some level of control software, but there can also be missing pieces, system integration gaps, or other limitations that inhibit one’s ability to deploy or fully leverage the energy storage asset.
Nuvation Energy provides our battery management system clients with the software development support required to close system integration gaps or add new functionality to existing control systems. We also create turnkey energy management systems. Our services include developing application-specific controllers for peak shaving, load shifting, power source prioritization, PV smoothing, and other functions. We also provide custom engineered solutions for component integration, such as the interfacing software between a Battery Management System and Power Conversion System.
An energy storage system consists of a range of complex components that work together to meet the demands of the target application. Environmental controls receive temperature data from batteries, fire suppression systems receive data from environmental controls, the power conversion system coordinates power management with the BMS, and so on. Nuvation Energy’s energy storage engineers can integrate the range of communications and connectivity protocols within your energy storage platform so all of your devices are able to communicate with one another. Our services include developing custom interface solutions that enable proprietary systems to work together.
Design for Stationary Energy Storage Certification
The energy storage landscape has become more highly regulated as safety concerns rise alongside increased deployment. Obtaining a single certification can require compliance with a range of electrical codes and electronic design standards. Before you start building your energy storage system, contact Nuvation for help ensuring that your design will pass all the industry certifications required for field deployment. We will work directly with regulatory agencies such as UL, CSA, TUV, and others to ensure that your energy storage system is market-ready.
There are many off-the shelf energy storage solutions out there, but sometimes you need something unique. Nuvation can specify, design, build, and deliver a turnkey ESS that meets your unique power, size, and use-case requirements. We will also assist with on-site commissioning by running the ESS through field tests to ensure that individual systems are functioning and coordinating with one another, and will troubleshoot any issues that may arise.
Energy Storage Augmentation
As your needs grow, there comes a time when you need to augment your fielded storage system. Nuvation Energy can integrate additional storage into your existing platform and provide solutions that enable you to run the augmented system as a single ESS. This can include introducing a new battery type or chemistry to your platform, and enabling the system to prioritize when to use which chemistry in the hybrid energy storage system. We can also add energy management capabilities such as PV smoothing or load shifting, or enhance remote monitoring and data analytics reporting functions.
