Lion Energy announced the launch of LionESS. LionESS technology enables customers to store virtually any type of renewable power generated (solar, wind, hydro and thermal), as well non-renewable sources (utility grid and generators). The result is an inventory of stored energy from a variety of power sources that can be managed and maximized for the most economical, eco-friendly usage possible.
LionESS technology elements are integral to the design, creation, deployment and support of Lion Energy products, all of which are designed and engineered in the U.S., ranging from small handheld power devices and portable solar generators to home, business and industrial custom solutions. These technologies include the Energy Management System (EMS) software, firmware and infrastructure to oversee the entire process of energy storage and use as well as the Battery Management System (BMS) software and infrastructure to efficiently use and protect the high-grade lithium iron phosphate batteries — the safest, longest-lasting, most reliable and eco-friendly batteries available today — that serve as the core energy storage. The Lion App will communicate with LionESS, providing data and control at the user’s fingertips, making it easy for anyone to control, efficiently store and use energy without having to be technologically savvy.
By using LionESS, customers can deploy the most cutting-edge approaches to energy use such as peak energy shaving, energy shift-time of use, energy backup power, energy arbitrage functions and critical-start.
LionESS offers two home and custom business and industrial solutions:
