Energy management technology player Delta Electronics is to launch a battery energy storage solution (BESS) designed to help utilities manage energy demand and reduce the costs of grid investment.

The technology can be used in conjunction with renewable energy production systems in smart grids and will store electricity that can be used by households when there is no sunlight or fed back into the grid when there is a surplus of energy.

“This new flexible and modular system helps managing energy in a grid including intermittent energy sources, such as solar energy,” said Jackie Chang, the president and general manager of Delta EMEA.

Delta (Taipei, Taiwan) says the energy storage and management system is modular and can “optimize” energy consumption and power dispatch according to customer profiles.

Besides reducing grid peak power demand, it can help to increase the use of renewable energy, such as existing rooftop photovoltaic installations, and reduce consumer electricity bills.

The BESS system includes a controller, sensor module and an energy management system that can be remotely controlled using a mobile device.

Delta says the product will become available on the market in 2015.
