Lion Energy’s LionESS is the newest entrant in the energy storage system market

Lion Sanctuary Wall

Lion Energy officially launched LionESS last week, with the goal of storing any type of renewable power generated (solar, wind, hydro and thermal), as well non-renewable sources (utility grid and generators).

Back in May, Lion Energy signed an off-take agreement with American Battery Factory Inc. (ABF), which is developing a U.S.-based network of Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) cell giga-factories, for 18 GWh of LFP battery cells — high-capacity prismatic cells offering 50 and 300 Ah outputs. Lion Energy will initially receive 1.2 GWh of cells annually, growing to 6 GWh over a five-year period.

Lion Energy products, all of which are designed and engineered in the U.S., range from small handheld power devices and portable solar generators to home, business and industrial custom solutions. With LionESS, customers can deploy peak energy shaving, time of use shifts, energy backup power, energy arbitrage functions and critical-start via two main solutions:

Lion Sanctuary: A powerful solar inverter and energy storage system that harnesses energy from a variety of sources to power homes, cabins, houseboats, and light offices and can be used as energy backup. The system features ant 8 kW hybrid inverter/charger with a 13.5 kWh LFP battery and is expandable.

Lion POWERsave: Available in a series of different sizes, Lion POWERsave can be used indoor and outdoor, with power and capacity ranging from 30kW/50kWh to 1.5MW/2.2MWh. Custom POWERsave solutions can be used in a variety of settings and industries including utilities, police, military, hospitals, airports, schools, railroads and data centers.

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.

“LionESS simplifies storing and utilizing energy, which enables customers to manage energy usage digitally at their fingertips,” said Zhenfang “Jim” Ge, Lion Energy founder and Chairman of the Board. “With LionESS, renewable energy and energy independence has never been easier or more viable as customers are able to determine the preferred source of energy as well as the best time to use stored energy for maximum efficiency, savings and green impact.”

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've discusses 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.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
