Things you need to know about energy storage


Renewable energy has been a top priority for Leoch Battery in recent years as the world recognises the need for greener alternatives to fossil fuel. We understand that we have an important part to play by creating safe, clean, high-powered batteries as a viable solution for energy storage.

Leoch Battery UK MD Mike Miao said: “We are actively hiring new talent to support renewable product development and business growth in this area. The simple fact is that the world desperately needs more batteries and more effective energy storage solutions.

“We are incredibly proud to be part of that drive, which is part a bigger vision to create a better planet.”

The entire Leoch family agree. So what do you need to know?


What is energy storage?

Energy storage is the collection of energy created now for use at a later date. The storage of captured energy helps to rebalance supply and demand.


What is a battery energy storage system (BESS)?

Battery energy storage systems (BESS), store energy from renewable sources such as wind or solar and then release that power when it is required.

The most popular type of battery storage currently is lithium-ion batteries, which are used in items such as mobile phones and electric cars.

The UK Government have pledged to end the sale of petrol and diesel cars by 2030. This will require battery storage technology.

It is vital that we harness power from the photovoltaic system and store this in heavy duty batteries that can be used daily on high power. Something like an electric car is likely to be used daily, at full speed, for lengthy periods of time and the battery needs to be up to that kind of demand.


What battery technology does Leoch Battery UK offer?

Our selected range has been designed to develop and produce clean energy, eco-friendly power solutions, using various battery technologies.

The Leoch Lithium 48V100TCAN is one of our impressive solutions to storing renewable generated energy.

This lithium-ion battery has a built-in battery management system (BMS) that uses the lithium cells to absorb power and allows the end user to utilise his solar stored energy when required.

It uses Lithium-Ion Phosphate chemistry, one of the safest lithium technology available today, and also has a fast charge capability. The cycle life is up to 3500 cycles at 100% depth of discharge (DoD).


Why do we need energy storage?

Climate change is a very real threat to all life and in order to fight this, we must replace fossil fuels with greener alternatives. Supply and demand for energy are not always equal so it is vital that we are able to store energy in order to meet changing demands.

Work is taking place across the world to fight climate change, which we believe could see the integration of solar or wind farms and battery manufacturers in order to consistently rely on battery power when the weather is unreliable.
