Schneider Electric Introduces All-In-One BESS 

Schneider Electric announced a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) designed and engineered to be a part of its standardized microgrid system, EcoStruxure™ Microgrid Flex. 

Graybar, a leading distributor of electrical, communications, data networking products, and provider of supply chain management and logistics services, is the inaugural channel partner for the new system. 

“With over two decades of expertise in battery conversion, we are proud to introduce a solution meticulously crafted to serve multiple energy needs,” said Jana Gerber, Schneider Electric’s President of North America Microgrids. “Our aim is to streamline energy expenditures while amplifying the use of renewable resources, including solar PV. Combining our proven track record of innovation with Graybar’s focus on renewable energy solutions will accelerate this mission.” 

Battery energy storage is the distributed energy resource that enables most customer energy-use cases, and includes a battery system, battery management system, power conversion system, and controller. As part of a microgrid system, BESS captures energy from different sources, accumulates this energy, and stores it in rechargeable batteries for later use. 

Schneider Electric’s new BESS has been tested and validated to work as an integral component of Schneider’s flexible, scalable and highly efficient EcoStruxure™ Microgrid Flex and fully integrated into the software suite, which includes EcoStruxure Microgrid Operation, and EcoStruxure Microgrid Advisor.  

There are two connection-ready BESS options available: a small, hybrid 7-feet NEMA 3R Enclosure that is both AC and DC coupled and a medium 20-feet NEMA 3R Enclosure that is AC coupled. Sizes for the family range from 60kW to 2MW in 2h and 4h configurations. 

The stored energy from a BESS can be discharged to supply power to office, industrial and commercial facilities, electric vehicles, or the grid.
