• What is home energy storage?
    May 31, 2023
    Home energy storage consists of a battery that allows you to store surplus electricity for later consumption, and when combined with solar power generated by your photovoltaic system, the batteries allow you to store energy generated during the day for use around the clock. Since battery energy storage systems are capable of optimizing the use of electricity, they ensure the most effective operation of your home solar power system. At the same time, they also guarantee continuity in case of temporary disruptions in the power supply, with extremely low response times. Home energy storage further supports energy self-consumption: the surplus energy produced during the daytime from a renewable source can be stored locally to use at a later time, thus reducing the degree of dependency on the electricity grid. An energy storage battery therefore makes self-consumption more effective. Home battery storage systems can be included with a solar power system at installation, or added to an already existing system. Since they make solar power more reliable, these storage systems are becoming increasingly widespread as the falling prices and environmental advantages of solar power make it become an increasingly common alternative to traditional power generation.   How does a home battery energy storage system work? Lithium-ion battery systems, the most commonly used type, are made up of several parts: Battery cells, manufactured by battery suppliers and assembled in battery modules (the smallest unit of an integrated battery system). Battery racks, made up of connected modules that generate a DC current. These can be arranged in multiple racks. An inverter that converts a battery’s DC output to an AC output. A Battery Management System (BMS) controls the battery, and is usually integrated with factory-made battery modules. In general, solar power battery storage works like this: the solar panel is connected to a controller, which in turn is connected to the battery racks or banks where it is stored. When needed, the current from the battery must be passed through a small inverter, which transforms it from alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC), or vice versa. Then the current passes through a meter and is supplied to your chosen wall sockets. How much energy can a home battery energy storage system store? Energy storage power is measured in kilowatt hours (kWh). Battery capacity can range from as little as 1 kWh over 10 kWh. Most households opt for a battery with 10 kilowatt hours of storage capacity, which is the battery’s output when it is fully changed (minus a minimum charge that the battery needs to stay on). Considering the question of how much power does a battery store, most homeowners typically chose only their most important appliances to be connected to the battery, such as a refrigerator, a few sockets to charge phones, lights, and the wifi system. In the event of a total  blackout, power stored by a typical 10 kWh battery will last from 10 to 12 hours, depending what the battery is being asked to power. A 10 kWh battery can run a refrigerator for 14 hours, a television for 130 hours, or a single LED light bulb for 1,000 hours.   What are the benefits of home battery storage? Thanks to the home energy storage battery, you can increase the amount of self-produced energy you consume instead of consuming it from the energy grid. This is called self-consumption, meaning the capability of homes or businesses to generate their own power, and is an important concept in today’s energy transition. One of the advantages of self-consumption is that customers use the power grid only when they are not using their own self-generated power, allowing them to save on costs and avoid the risk of power outages. Energy independence from self-consumption or going off the grid means you are not reliant on a utility for your energy needs, and are therefore protected from price spikes, supply fluctuations and blackouts. If one of your main reasons for installing solar panels is to reduce carbon emissions, adding a battery to your system helps you get the maximum performance in terms of reducing your greenhouse gas emissions and your home’s carbon footprint. Home energy storage systems are also cost-effective, since you will be storing  power from a source of clean, renewable energy that is completely free: the sun.

  • What Conditions You should consider when choosing Battery Energy Storage System?
    Jul 26, 2023
      Home energy storage devices store electricity locally, for later consumption. Electrochemical energy storage products, also known as "Battery Energy Storage System" (or "BESS" for short), at their heart are rechargeable batteries, typically based on lithium-ion or lead-acid controlled by computer with intelligent software to handle charging and discharging cycles. Companies are also developing smaller flow battery technology for home use.   As a local energy storage technologies for home use, they are smaller relatives of battery-based grid energy storage and support the concept of distributed generation. When paired with on-site generation, they can virtually eliminate blackouts in an off-the-grid lifestyle.   There are several important conditions to consider how to choose home energy storage system:   1. Capacity and Power Output: Assess your energy needs and determine the capacity and power output required for your home. Consider factors such as your average energy consumption, peak energy demands, and any specific appliances or systems you want to power during outages or peak times.   2. Battery Technology: Different battery technologies have varying characteristics, such as energy density, cycle life, efficiency, and cost. Research and compare battery options, such as lithium-ion, lead-acid, or flow batteries, to find the technology that best suits your needs in terms of performance, lifespan, and cost.    3. Scalability: Consider the scalability of the home energy storage system. Can you expand or add more batteries in the future if your energy needs change? Flexibility in system size ensures you can adapt to evolving energy requirements.   4. Charging and Discharging Rate: Evaluate the charging and discharging rates of the system. A high charging rate allows you to recharge the batteries quickly, while a high discharging rate enables you to power multiple appliances simultaneously or meet peak demand.   5. Warranty and Lifespan: Look for a home energy storage system that offers a reliable warranty and has a long lifespan. Ideally, the system should be designed to last for many years and come with a warranty that provides you with peace of mind.   6. Integration with Renewable Energy: If you have solar panels or other renewable energy sources, consider how well the energy storage system integrates with these sources. Ensure compatibility, efficient energy management, and the ability to maximize self-consumption of renewable energy.   7. Monitoring and Control: Determine the level of monitoring and control provided by the energy storage system. Look for features such as real-time energy monitoring, mobile apps, and remote control capabilities, which can enhance your ability to manage and optimize energy usage.   8. Safety Features: A home energy storage system should have robust safety features to protect against overheating, overcharging, and other potential hazards. Look for systems with built-in safety mechanisms and certifications that adhere to industry standards.   9. Cost and Return on Investment: Consider the upfront cost, including the price of the system, installation, and any necessary additional components. Evaluate the potential return on investment by calculating energy savings, incentives, and the system's ability to offset peak electricity rates or provide backup power during outages.   By carefully considering these conditions, you can choose a home energy storage system that aligns with your energy needs, integrates with your renewable energy sources, and provides long-term value and reliability.   As a professional ESS manufacturer ,Zhuhai Changing Energy Technology CO.,Ltd provide various battery solutions for you,and please feel free to contact us for more website:
