De-risk deployment & operations of energy storage systems

March 27, 2023

On average battery energy storage systems are only available 82% of the time. Many issues however can already be detected before deployment, in the commissioning phase. The article explains the advantages of digital commissioning, like a quicker analysis and more detailed insights into KPIs and potential manufacturing failures.

Introduction

Battery energy storage systems (BESS) are becoming increasingly popular to store excess energy generated by renewable sources such as solar and wind, as well as to improve the efficiency and operation of the electric grid. The global energy storage system market is expected to grow 15-fold by 2030.

However, energy storage systems come with risks. Average BESS availability is only 82% , meaning asset owners miss out on considerable revenue due to downtime. Furthermore, in the past years, 58% of energy storage failures have happened within the first 2 years of storage life, showing this to be the most critical phase. These failure events can and should be prevented. Many issues can be detected before deployment, in the commissioning phase, to avoid unnecessary and expensive downtime in the operation phase.

TWAICE provides digital commissioning to asset owners, helping them to identify manufacturing (and other) problems before deployment, laying the groundwork for safe, reliable and profitable operations. After deployment of the storage, TWAICE analytics helps asset owners de-risk their storages long term.

The article covers the following topics:

  • What is energy storage system commissioning?
  • De-risking BESS deployment with TWAICE Digital Commissioning
  • De-risking BESS operations with TWAICE in-life analytics
