Our containerized utility scale distributed energy storage systems are built to house a modular configuration of racks that can make up multi-megawatts of storage. All of our systems use the same building block structure (scalability based on Tower/Rack configurations from 1MWh/4MW increments) partnered with its own inverter, a redundant architecture that minimizes the possibility of a single point of failure in the system and a maximized reliability factor. These large-scale systems use a Multi-Tower Power Source Controller to manage the cells across the entire system. This new, unique design that Exergonix is introducing is a novel technology to be used for future grid storage systems in a vast array of applications. The use of nano-based materials allows the battery to have significant increases in power, energy, and cycle life, along with the ability to systematically build 10+ year calendar life, a requirement in grid-tied utility applications. In using our utility scale products, we are able to provide our customers with stand-alone micro-grid capability with distributed inverter implementation for guaranteed up-time, where multi-Tower Power Control Systems maximize efficiency and life – even in remote locations where electrical infrastructure does not exist. This changes how we see energy in the world today.
Our First Generation energy storage platform used a nano-based NMC lithium polymer cell technology to create a one-megawatt-hour system which was installed under a U.S. Department of Energy program at KCP&L’s Kansas City substation. This validated the battery’s effectiveness for managing energy while tied to the grid to support islanding, frequency regulation, peak shaving/load shifting, demand management, micro-grid operations, power quality assistance and EV/PEV recharging. This system stores solar power produced at the installation site and captures excess power from the substation at off-peak hours. The stored energy is then offloaded during peak demand times, while the overall system acts as a buffer to the grid for emergencies and frequency regulation in the transmission process. Exergonix worked with partners like MRI Global, National Renewable Energy Laboratories, and Burns & McDonnell to validate the functionality of the system as it performed the various aspects of grid level operations over 5 years of its operations to date.
