Data management and digitalisation enable the successful operation of large battery energy storage systems (ESS), from existing use cases to future applications. In times of uncertain and quickly changing market conditions, these technologies and the benefits they can provide to ESS operators have become essential.

It begins with an overview of different data categories and the challenges and solutions in data acquisition and transmission required to create a digital twin of the ESS.
The panellists then show examples of different applications enabled by data management for multi-megawatt ESS composed of many physically distinct, containerised storage units, virtually combined and orchestrated into single functional entities.
The main focus is on predictive functions:

  • Predictive maintenance enabled through data mining
  • Predictive ageing for historical and future operational patterns
  • Anticipating ESS behaviour under evolving operational scenarios

The webinar provides an in-depth understanding of the challenges and opportunities linked to digitalisation for ESS owners and operators.

Illustrated with examples from real-world, operational systems, learn what to expect from a state-of-the-art energy storage system and how to specify data management requirements from an end-user perspective.
