Delta Electronics Introduces Innovative Battery Energy Storage Solution
Delta designed this BESS system for smart grid applications
VERSAILLES, France -- June 28, 2014
Delta Electronics (TWSE: 2308), a global leader in power and thermal
management solutions headquartered in Taiwan, announced today the launch of a
new Battery Energy Storage Solution (BESS), at a press conference in Paris.
This innovative energy-saving solution is complementary with renewable energy
production systems in smart grids, and helps managing energy demand to
ultimately reduce or defer the overall costs of grid investment and power
Delta developed this innovative energy storage system designed for smart grid
applications to optimize home energy balance. The system serves as an ‘energy
reservoir’ for electricity generated from the photovoltaic (PV) module. The
electricity which is stored in the batteries in the system can either be used
by the household when there is no sunlight, or be fed into the grid when there
is surplus energy.
Jackie Chang, president and general manager of Delta EMEA, said “thanks to
Delta’s Battery Energy Storage Solution, the system showed a significant
reduction of grid power purchase. This new flexible and modular system helps
managing energy in a grid including intermittent energy sources, such as solar
energy. With this new solution, Delta contributes to smarter and greener
The Delta energy storage and management system is designed to be modular and
flexible in configuration. It can optimize energy consumption and power
dispatch according to customer profiles.
Significant benefits resulted from the Delta energy storage system include 1.
Reducing gird peak power demand; 2. Increasing the utilization of renewable
energy, such as the existing rooftop PV installation; and 3. Reducing
electricity bills by load shift and avoiding high electricity tariffs.
The BESS system is a home energy system consisting of a complete Delta
composition, including rectifier, charger, micro-inverter, Li-ion battery,
controller, sensor module and an energy management system, which can be
remotely-controlled via mobile device. The Delta BESS system will be available
on market in 2015.
