The Impact of Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) in Temporary Power Applications
Many businesses have been focusing on reducing fuel consumption and their carbon footprint. Various government initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions have accelerated this trend. These initiatives greatly benefit the planet and environment, but they can also leave Sustainability Managers searching for ways to offset their company’s carbon footprint. This demand is quickly driving the adoption of alternative, zero-emission power technology like battery energy storage systems (BESS).
POWR2 is a manufacturer of the POWRBANK, a portable battery energy storage system for temporary power applications. Integrating battery energy storage systems (BESS) with diesel generators can help reduce generator runtime, shrink fuel consumption, and lower CO2 emissions. Rental businesses and construction companies can use the POWRBANK to save fuel costs, improve operational efficiency, and demonstrate commitment to sustainability and environmental responsibility.
Discover How BESS Works in Temporary Power Applications
Battery energy storage systems (BESS) like the POWRBANK work by storing excess power from diesel generators, renewable sources like solar and wind, or the grid. Stored energy then powers the load.
Here’s how a POWRBANK would work on a construction site using a diesel genset. The BESS plus diesel generator creates an ideal hybrid power system:
- The diesel generator supplies power to the site. Excess power charges the POWRBANK.
- The generator switches off when the batteries are full. The POWRBANK provides silent power to the load.
- The POWRBANK restarts the generator when the batteries are almost depleted.
- This seamless cycle repeats automatically.
BESS Off-Grid Applications
POWRBANK industrial energy storage systems provide clean and silent energy for a variety of commercial applications. Here are a few examples:
- Construction Sites
- The POWRBANK is as a temporary power solution during the building process. BESS can power office trailers, HVAC, tools, lighting, security systems, and other equipment, minimizing the need for traditional diesel generators.
- Remote Areas
- The POWRBANK is and ideal temporary power solution in off-grid locations where there is no access to the main grid. This can include remote construction sites, oil rigs, and mining operations, among others.
- Outdoor Events
- The POWRBANK is a portable power solution for outdoor events such as concerts, festivals, and sporting events. This includes powering AV equipment, vendor food refrigeration, ticket counters, and much more. A particular advantage to using the POWRBANK for events is that the power is silent. Event Managers can eliminate the noise from diesel generators, so it doesn’t distract from the main event.
- Remote Agriculture
- The POWRBANK powers agricultural equipment in remote locations when grid access is limited or non-existent. This includes irrigation systems, pumps, and other equipment, allowing farmers to operate more sustainably and efficiently.
