Allye updates Max battery energy storage system

Clean tech startup Allye, the smart battery technology platform for distributed energy storage, has released its updated Max battery energy storage system (BESS).

Featuring an all-new design, the Max has been engineered and built in less than two months, following several months of testing and in-field trials in collaboration with a range of major corporations who see the value in decarbonising their existing operations.

The second Max system will undergo final testing ahead of installation at Allye’s first commercial customer in November under its Energy-Storage-as-a-Service (ESaaS) business model. ESaaS aims to eliminate the upfront capital investment to provide immediate returns for customers, by saving them up to 50% on energy bills through intelligent software.

The latest version has more than 300kWh, a three-phase output of 120kVa, and gross weight of more than 3 tonnes, including trailer, offering a more capable and more efficient engineering innovation to lower energy costs by up to 50%.

Trials have been carried out both on-grid and off-grid, providing clean, silent power for a range of applications to successfully reduce electricity costs, eliminate emissions and improve total cost of ownership. It also now features integrated solar panels for local generation which will supply power for low voltage systems, and other features such as a cutaway detail to channel cables downwards to reduce the risk of trip hazard.

Jonathan Carrier, CEO of Allye said:  “We are delighted to unveil our latest version of the Max at UK Construction Week. Since we unveiled the Max in July, we’ve been inundated with interest from a range of industries that see the value in our smart energy storage to lower costs, reduce emissions and help the accelerate the energy transition for the grid.

“We’ve conducted a range of trials that has tested the full performance envelop of the Max, which I’m delighted to confirm we passed with flying colours. We’ve also continued to demonstrate the capability of our team to execute at speed, re-engineering our design to incorporate feedback from the market and learnings from the trial. We have great momentum as we head toward series production next year.”
