The firm has actually released TeraStor, a new lithium-ion battery energy storage system (BESS) together with the StorView power administration system (EMS) suite of software and also control hardware for optimising the system's performance.

TeraStor offers 'more than' 7.2 MWh of power storage and 3.5 MW of integrated inverter capacity, i.e. power. The firm claims its pre-made setup implies it can be installed on-site in 6 hours versus weeks or months for a more traditional system.

According to a business datasheet, it has an AC round-trip efficiency of 88-91%, relatively reduced for lithium-ion, and also an operating DC voltage variety of 1150-1560 Vdc. Although not on the datasheet, the firm's internet site states it uses lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries.

American Battery Solutions (ABS) announced its arrival right into the marketplace in 2018 with the procurement of the production and also testing assets for battery systems from Robert Bosch Battery Systems. That consisted of a 16,000 square metre facility in Springboro, Ohio, where Robert Bosch had actually been putting together lithium-ion battery packs for the EV sector considering that 2009.

ABS re-launched the center in April 2022 with added manufacturing capacity, generally for its ALLIANCE Intelligent Battery Series for light commercial as well as heavy-duty EV markets. It also has a development centre in Michigan and also utilizes 175 people.

US head of state Joe Biden recently signed the Inflation Reduction Act which boosted incentives for both upstream and also downstream parts of the country's power storage space value chain.
