BESS system integrator FlexGen launches C&I product


US battery energy storage system integrator FlexGen has launched a new product for distributed and behind-the-meter applications.

The North Carolina-headquartered company has launched FlexPod, a suite of containerised, modular and scalable storage solutions designed to meet a broad range of product requirements. Each Flexpod includes batteries, power conversion electronics, thermal management and fire suppression and is enabled with the company’s energy management software (EMS), HybridOS.

“Commercial and Industrial (C&I) businesses need scaleable, flexible energy solutions now more than ever. This is a sector that is bearing the brunt of energy inflation and the high costs of fossil fuels right now. With FlexPod, we are enabling all energy consumers to realise the benefits of advanced energy storage,” said Kelcy Pegler, FlexGen CEO.

The benefits of its product include an advanced capability to manage power quality, ‘out of the box’ integration with solar, advanced microgrid functionality and integration with EV charging infrastructure, the company said. It already has an EV charging solution which combines its EMS platform with battery storage, launched in February this year.

Use cases for the FlexPod listed on FlexGen’s site include peak shaving, energy arbitrage, demand charge reduction, load shifting, grid services, backup power, an islanding capability, combining with solar and self consumption.

The company added that FlexPod’s full containerisation makes site integration and construction easier and that the product has the ability to be adapted over time to changing requirements.

The announcement comes a few weeks after it raised US$100 million in a Series C round led by Netherlands-headquartered commodities and energy trading group Vitol, as reported by

FlexGen is a US-only operator with projects across the country, but the bulk in Texas and California, including a massive 2.1GWh order for developer Ameresco which was recently delayed due to lockdowns in China impact the supply of BESS equipment.
