Energy Storage

Energy Storage Systems (ESS) provide a multitude of advantages to both renewable and fossil fuel generation systems. Energy storage can turn Solar PV and Wind generation into a dispatchable power source. Power quality, reduced generation costs, peak shaving, and frequency control are also provided with energy storage systems.

Battery Storage

With continuing battery technology innovations and price reductions, battery technology is becoming a dominant design choice for many commercial, industrial, and utility applications. Battery technologies are selected based upon the application, budget, and generating system. Capital costs, operation and maintenance costs, roundtrip efficiency, lifespan, and load profiles are all considerations in selecting the appropriate solution. Deep-Cycle lead acid, lithium ion, sodium-sulphur, and flow batteries each have their advantages and disadvantages in energy storage. We specialize in the design, installation, commissioning, and O&M services for large commercial, industrial, and utility level Battery Energy Storage Systems. Tropitech is an approved engineering firm for Tesla Powerpack and Megapack Systems. We provide operation and maintenance of these system as approved Tesla 3rd Party Service Provider.
