Princeton Power Systems turns on energy storage system for BMW

Princeton Power Systems turns on its energy storage system at BMW Group's Technology Office in Mountain View, California

Princeton, N.J., July 30, 2012 — Princeton Power Systems turns on its energy storage system at BMW Group's Technology Office in Mountain View, California. The ESS uses PPS' new demand response inverter in an integrated system.

The ESS, consisting of a 100 kW demand response inverter (DRI-100) and 30 kWh lithium ion batteries, will be used to store renewable energy from the on-site solar array, reduce peak electricity demand and demonstrate DC fast charging technology for electric vehicles.

The Princeton Power ESS is just one piece of BMW Group Technology Office's USA e-mobility lab, a smart-home and electric vehicle ecosystem demonstration.

PPS' DRI-100 was introduced in 2011 as an advanced bi-directional multi-port inverter with the ability to directly route power through its multiple AC and DC terminals, revolutionizing applications such as electric vehicle charging and demand response.
