Eguana Technologies upgraded its Elevate energy storage system for C&I applications with Pason Power’s Intelligent Energy Management System (iEMS), which will combine machine-learning with real-time and historical data to optimize the the system’s value streams.
“With the integration of Pason Power’s Intelligent EMS into our Elevate products we now offer our Commercial and Industrial (C&I) storage customers a powerful way to perform financial modeling based on actual equipment performance,” said Brent Harris, CTO of Eguana Technologies Inc. “The computational complexity required to gain meaningful insight into the storage system is far beyond what humans can do, and we are very excited to bring machine learning from Pason Power to our customers.”
What can EMS do?
Pason Power’s Intelligent EMS incorporates Internet of Things sensor data, weather metrics, energy market changes, load and generation data, and related information streams and factors these into its optimization algorithms to make actionable recommendations and predictions about when and how to leverage energy storage. Anyone evaluating Eguana storage systems can easily model their storage needs with Pason Power’s Storage Architect, a tool that allows customers to deploy solar and energy storage with confidence. Storage Architect significantly reduces the risks to asset owners, installers, and financiers of over- or under-building storage systems because it leverages the same data backbone used by production systems.

“Machine learning is ideally suited to perform energy storage value stacking in real-time, and with this integration, Eguana customers can go from pencil-out to power-on very quickly,” said Enrico Ladendorf, managing director of Pason Power. “Intelligent EMS users reap the benefits of complex computational analysis without the need for a data scientist. Storage developers and solar installers can be confident that storage system data modeled by our products accurately represent how their Eguana systems will perform in the field.”
The Elevate energy storage system can be deployed in small commercial and industrial applications. A standard unit contains 15 kW of power and up to 39 kWh of storage within the size of a standard shipping pallet, and multiple units can operate in parallel, providing design flexibility for a range of project sizes. The factory integrated power control system from Pason Power and lithium-ion batteries from LG Chem provide reliability through automated protection and recovery as well as long-term performance with minimal service requirements.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We discuss everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
