What Is A Solar Battery Energy Storage System (BESS)

Solar Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) includes the components of  battery storage, solar inverter and pv module. Why we need it?

What is the current state of the energy market?

Since the outbreak of conflict between Russia and Ukraine and the change of climate, the topic of energy has emerged endlessly. On the one hand, Europe wants to reduce its dependence on Russian energy. On the other hand, Europe has become more interested in clean energy amid the crisis of high energy prices.

In recent years, in order to reduce energy pollution to the environment, Europe advocates green energy (especially wind, water and solar energy) and constantly reduce the use of coal. But demand for power generation in Europe has surged because of last year's extreme weather. However, as wind power generation was suspended due to the decrease in wind power, and  the price of natural gas began to rise by more than 10 times.

According to the European Photovoltaic Association, the 27 member states of the European Union added 25.9GW of new photovoltaic installations in 2021, up 34% year on year. Among them, the top three are Germany, Spain and the Netherlands. It is expected that the new photovoltaic installation volume in the whole Europe this year will be more than 47GW. With the continuation and escalation of the European energy crisis, European countries have introduced policies to encourage the development of new energy, and the European photovoltaic market has ushered in a great explosion.

The definition of BESS

So if you’re interested in solar energy market, then read on. BESS means Battery Energy Storage System, which is a type of energy storage device the uses batteries as its underlying storage technology. It is more than just a battery, and requires additional components, such as solar inverter, solar panels,etc, allowing the battery to be connected to an electrical network.

  1. Energy storage battery

When it comes to energy storage battery, most people will choose LiFePO4 battery as the energy storage battery. LiFePO4 Lithium Battery is a newer type of battery gaining recognition in the manufacturing industries for its higher power output, faster charging, lighter weight, and longer life. It is majorly used in RVs, golf cart, marine, boats, and off-grid homes,etc.

  1. Solar inverter

An inverter is one of the most important pieces of equipment in the BESS system. It's a device that converts direct current (DC) electricity to alternating current (AC) electricity. Solar inverters are essential. Without it, your system won't work. Choosing the right options can also have a big impact on the performance of your system. A good inverter can ensure that you get the best system for your house and make it easier to use.

  1. Solar panel

A solar cell panel is a photovoltaic cell module mounted in a frame. Solar panels use sunlight as an energy source to produce direct current electricity. A group of photovoltaic modules is called a photovoltaic panel, and a group of photovoltaic panels is called an array. Arrays of photovoltaic systems provide solar power to electrical equipment.

Why we need BESS?

BESS can provide backup power during power outages or extreme weather events, reducing the need for expensive equipment upgrades or emergency generators. It can also help you with peak power consumption, assist with load balancing and grid support, balance fluctuations in power demand throughout the day, and reduce grid congestion. Therefore, if you get BESS system, there are 2 clear advantages you can see: save your money for energy power; solve the problem of energy shortage.
