Storage system: Greensmith Energy Management Systems, a provider of energy storage solutions and technologies, has announced the launch of a new line of energy storage software and integration services. Although the US-based company with over 22 installations and 14 customers has seen rapid growth by delivering ever-larger, more sophisticated turn-key energy storage solutions for both utility-scale and C&I applications, the recent a la carte offerings are a more defined response to growing demand for Greensmith's advanced software and integration capabilities.
With extensive experience on both sides of the meter developing and delivering systems featuring battery-agnostic software technologies supporting key grid and micro-grid applications at kWh and MWh levels, these new offerings give OEMs, project developers and end users an invaluable path to leverage packaged, ready-to-apply technology and services that avoids custom-shop type risks, costs and lead times to project fulfillment.
The upcoming release of Greensmith's newest software package, called BOS4 (Battery Operating System 4), will include an extensive suite of energy storage applications including frequency regulation, demand management, renewable ramp rate control, and EV charge integration. In addition, Greensmith plans to make its BOS4 software platform even more flexible by offering a standard API to customers so they may write their own proprietary applications.
Greensmith has always sought to fill the critical gap between good hardware - namely battery and inverter technologies - and the actual value derived by customers trying to solve real-world grid congestion problems", said Greensmith CEO, John Jung. "Since our founding in 2008 we viewed energy storage as more than batteries-in-a-box. Accordingly, we invested our capital and resources to build our systems as programmable, distributed computers suited to perform within a changing grid network infrastructure. Sharing these software, data and integration services allows others to benefit from our experience.”
