Roswell, Ga.-based GS Battery Inc. (GSB) has announced the deployment of its new Hybrid Energy System (HES). Nine HES cabinets are in service, with three systems deployed by the Electric Power Research Institute for the Tennessee Valley Authority's SMART Station program and six storage-only systems deployed as part of a complete EV charge station by Oak Ridge National Labs' U.S. Department of Energy EV Charger trial program.

Equipped with 48 V of ECO R lead acid battery technology, the compact HES unit addresses the renewable energy storage needs in an easily installed, indoor/outdoor cabinet, GSB says. The HES unit is capable of powering critical loads and has an optional integrated electric vehicle charger plug, level 2 EVSE. The option of combining battery storage with PV power generation gives the HES unit the expanded capability to operate either tied into the grid, as a stand-alone unit or in a hybrid mode, the company adds. Rated NEMA 3R, the cabinet is built of outdoor grade aluminum and has an eco-green power coat finish. Additional options include AC and DC load centers, a PV charge controller, auxiliary heating and air conditioning, a hydrogen sensor and fan cooling.
