Assuming Control: The Software Revolution in Energy Storage

Original Webinar Event/Time:

Thursday, August 19, 2021

1:00PM ET -2:00 PM ET

Energy storage technologies offer unprecedented flexibility to power systems—but only if they employ smart software and controls. Safely and effectively operating large grid-connected battery energy storage systems (BESS) requires increasingly sophisticated data processing and parameter prediction to optimize asset performance and value. Software embedded in battery management systems (BMS) directs thousands of individual cells to operate in concert, software that runs power control systems (PCS) enables a BESS to interact with an always-changing grid and bidding algorithms solve complex problems over increasingly narrow intervals to maximize the asset’s value.

As software, algorithms, and continuous data processing increasingly define modern energy storage, the rapid evolution in software and controls has significantly improved energy storage systems.  This webinar will provide a window into recent and expected developments in software and controls that will enable increased performance and value capture of energy storage systems.
