A Battery Energy Storage System (often referred to as ‘BESS’) – is a subset of renewable energy.
They can capture, store and supply power on-demand to any construction worksite using chemical and battery technology. One of the most common types of chemical solutions to achieve this is lithium-ion chemistry.
Essentially, a BESS works to input and output energy without relying on diesel fuel. It will source energy from the main grid connection or renewable source, charge the battery to 100% and store it for later use. When the demand is called upon, it will leverage this power from the battery together with any energy source for stable, reliable power output.
Using batteries and advanced software means the unit can provide almost instantaneous response times to help maintain a strong, consistent grid connection.
While there are many smaller energy storage systems emerging on the market for recreational or home use, units like the 300KW AMPD Enertainer are set to power the next generation of construction projects.
While energy storage solutions are applicable across many industries, their design and purpose are unique to the application.
For construction and mining applications, it’s all about understanding the demand for energy and being able to deliver an innovative solution. A BESS ensures the efficient, continuous supply of energy with the lowest possible emission output.
