Generac says its new zero-emission SBE line of fixed storage systems is available from 200 kWh to 1,000 kWh.
Generac Industrial Power, the Wisconsin-based power generation unit of Generac Power Systems, has announced the zero-emission SBE series of stationary battery energy storage systems (BESS) for commercial and industrial (C&I) applications.
The SBE series combines with on-site solar power and Generac gas and diesel generators to provide resilience during power outages. The new fixed battery energy storage systems (BESS) are available from 200 kWh to 1,000 kWh. Delivered in a 20-foot enclosure, the company says it can help C&I customers save on energy costs by reducing peak loads and taking advantage of benefits. from the prices of the useful life. The systems also provide site flexibility when the grid is down or suffers from power quality issues.
SBE systems offer a local data server, HMI interface, cloud-based monitoring, multi-level security authentication and more. The company announces that it supports Ethernet-based communication and compatibility with third-party EMS, SCADA systems
“Energy management today increasingly means balancing a combination of carbon reduction, energy conservation and energy resilience goals,” said Erik Wilde, Generac’s director of industrial operations, Americas. “Our SBE range showcases advanced energy technology from a leading company with over 60 years of experience delivering energy solutions.”
The SBE series is offered as stand-alone energy storage products and paired with Generac’s existing generators and power enabling products and technologies, including transfer switches, circuit breakers, remote connectivity solutions and the Concerto distributed energy resource management system. The company reports that the SBE series will be available later this year.
