Schneider Electric unveils all-in-one BESS for microgrids

Leading digital automation and energy management company, Schneider Electric on Friday (April 26) announced the launch of its latest all-in-one battery energy storage system (BESS) for microgrids.

The new BESS system will be made available in various markets and underpins fully integrated microgrid solutions driven by Schneider Electric's controls, optimization, electrical distribution, and digital and field services.

"Reliable energy supply cannot be taken for granted. With over two decades of expertise in power conversion and batteries, storage is at the core of Schneider Electric's proposition. Now, we are proud to introduce a solution that has been thoroughly designed and tested," said Bala Vinayagam, Senior Vice President of Microgrids at Schneider Electric.

"Our aim is to deliver this cornerstone technology to the market that enables multiple use cases for resilience, sustainability, and energy cost savings. We are providing greater demand-side flexibility at scale to the microgrid sector by enabling our local expert partners to deliver a safe and compatible system."

The BESS is available as a 20-feet NEMA 3R Enclosure that is AC coupled and available from 250kW to 2MW in 2h and 4h configurations.

The BESS comprises battery modules, battery racks, a battery management system, a power conversion unit, and controllers. The BESS has been tested and validated to work as an integral component with Schneider Electric's microgrid systems. Additionally, it can be fully integrated into the software suite, which includes EcoStruxure Microgrid Operation, and EcoStruxure Microgrid Advisor.

"Our new battery energy storage system marks a significant step forward in enabling storage and connection with Distributed Energy Resources that is flexible enough to meet the future energy demand needs," Vinayagam added.
