March 3, 2022 – EVLO launched what it calls its most-advanced battery energy storage system.
The EVLO 1000 is a 1-MWh BESS designed mainly for electricity generators, and transmission providers and distributors. The system suits a variety applications, says EVLO, including renewable energy integration, microgrids, peak shaving, backup power and grid resilience.
The BESS uses no cobalt nor rare earth elements, says EVLO. Instead, it uses patented lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) batteries that promise better thermal and chemical stability than traditional batteries. The EVLO 1000 is fitted with over 200 sensors for real-time temperature monitoring, a hydrogen-emissions detector, ventilation system, and dry-pipe sprinkler system.
The EVLO 1000 system measures 8.84 x 1.82 m, contains “advanced safety systems and a powerful software solution, enabling remote control and monitoring”. Under “specific operational parameters”, the unit can last up to 20 years. At the end, its constituent elements are 99% recyclable.
EVLO is a Hydro-Quebec subsidiary specializing in energy storage systems.
