The Alevo GridBank™ is the most advanced lithium-ion storage system on the market due to the attributes of Alevo’s patented battery technology, integrated hardware and software solutions, and its unique GridBank engineering. The GridBank is a vertically engineered 2 MW / 1 MWh storage system. At the heart of the GridBank is Alevo Battery Technology (ABT) that uses Alevolyte™, a breakthrough inorganic electrolyte that provides powerful attributes not found in any other battery on the market today.
Alevo Batteries featuring Alevolyte, inorganic electrolyte, are non-flammable and non-combustible.
Alevo Batteries have constant internal resistance and maintain constant power throughout the usable life of the battery.
Laboratory testing has shown extreme long battery life due to the predictable chemical reactions inside the battery.
The Alevo GridBank is the “Swiss Army Knife” for the grid with tools that offer flexibility across the entire electricity supply chain from generation to consumption and distributed generation. When deployed they offer a unique value proposition. They can be a source of revenue, offer cost savings, integrate well with renewables, preserve legacy assets and are environmentally friendly.
Our unique enclosure with 22 separate rack doors is designed to be easily maintained with direct access to individual battery racks. By accessing isolated racks from outside the container, servicing a GridBank by qualified technicians is possible without turning off the entire enclosure, ensuring more uptime and increased operator safety.
GridBank Energy Storage offers practical cost saving and efficiency applications across the entire supply chain for both utilities and third party vendors.
Alevo’s safety and long life characteristics are the best choice for a large variety of energy storage applications including:
While the cost metric of cost per KWh may have value in some cost calculations for certain battery use and has become a standard industry measurement, it is a misleading measure and potentially costly error in calculating the true cost of energy storage. Alevo does not release cost per KWh because its value is meaningless to Alevo cost measurements as it does not take into account cost per cycle and application specific value. High power applications (multi-C) significantly reduce cycle life in conventional (organic electrolyte) lithium-ion. Conventional lithium-ion batteries have an average cycle life of 3,000 to 5,000 cycles without impediments of high power applications, severe weather, and calendric aging, with some lasting only 300 cycles. Alevo’s inorganic batteries last up to 50,000* cycles and are not impeded by power applications, temperature or calendric aging.
Traditional Costing Models look for lowest KWh because it impacts the CapEx, lowering initial costs but raising lifetime costs. Replacement costs of batteries and subsequent cost of downtime are not taken into account. Alevo batteries only decline with energy throughput. Alevo’s cost per cycle is an industry low, offering Safe Power, longer with less downtime. The best, most accurate way to calculate the cost of lithium-ion battery energy storage is not by CapEx but by TCO, total cost of ownership.
The most accurate battery life measurement for the Alevo Battery is “energy throughput”. It is only applicable to Alevo batteries because it is not effected by calendric ageing, high power applications, or severe weather. While number of cycles is a real measurement in a laboratory because it counts full charge / recharge cycles, in real world applications, hundreds of shorter cycles occur and full cycling happens only occasionally.
