Energy demand is expected to grow by more than 2 percent annually through 2030 due to the electricity demands of our growing global population. Renewable energy sources – like solar and wind – are helping to augment the need to build additional power plants thereby reducing our carbon footprint and dependence on fossil fuels. Energy storage solutions help to make these renewable energy resources viable and lithium-ion energy storage solutions offer unique benefits.
In addition, more companies are using lithium-ion energy storage solutions for critical equipment, facility and data center back-up, while utilities are embracing the technology for their peak shaving and load balancing needs.
With proven experience in designing, manufacturing and installing energy storage systems for a variety of residential, commercial and industrial applications, EnerDel’s Secure+ energy storage systems provide greater reliability, scalability and efficiency compared to other battery-based solutions.
EnerDel’s Secure+ energy storage systems can be used for a variety of applications, including:
- Peak shaving
- Frequency regulation
- Bulk energy storage
- Renewable energy storage
- Sub-station equipment back-up
- Community energy storage
- Residential back-up and storage

The US Air Force Research Laboratory and University of Dayton Research institute launched a year-long program in March 2016 to help demonstrate new forms of energy technologies designed to reduce the amount of diesel fuel needed to power remote military installations. EnerDel became involved when its mobile hybrid power system, pictured above, attracted the interest of the two conjoined teams.
The unit was primarily used to demonstrate fuel savings by running the generator at its optimum fuel consumed to power produced level anytime the generator was on. The energy consumed by the load was subtracted from the energy produced with the excess energy directed into the energy storage system (ESS); once the ESS was topped off, the generator would be turned off and the loads supported with power being drawn from the ESS.
The MHPS was developed to cut diesel fuel costs, enhance the safety of the user and be a moveable, functionally, energy storage solution from base to base.
EnerDel sourced Portland General Electric (PGE) with a 5MW energy storage system as part of PGE’s Salem Smart Power Center. The solution, pictured above, is comprised of five 1MW systems featuring EnerDel’s SP90-590 storage system. Customers can benefit from the use of smart-grid systems and technologies that incorporate energy storage for renewable resources, backup power, and peak shaving.
The ESS (Energy Storage System) went live in August of 2013, PGE expects it to be operational for a minimum of 10 years. The project is designed to improve system reliability and support renewable resources.
The ESS is part of the larger PGE power system comprised of five large breakers that bring power in and out of the building allowing the inverters to change the electricity from alternating current (AC) to direct current (DC) during the charging cycle. The direct current electricity is stored in EnerDel’s ESS to be used during peak demand periods, or, as backup power when there is a loss of utility supply. The same power system and inverters convert the clean DC to AC as the grid demands. This reserve electricity can be stored for several weeks at a time and drawn from to support the needs of more than 3,500 residential and business customers.

EnerDel’s grid energy storage system that is featured below, is used as a frequency response in Portland General Electric’s Salem Smart Power Center. When there is a loss of energy supplies to the community, EnerDel’s battery can provide the backup energy that is needed for the grid to help prevent major power outages.
