Published in January 2018, Navigant Research’s Advanced Energy Storage for UPS Applications report examines the drivers, barriers and regional trends affecting deployment of distributed energy storage systems with uninterruptible power supply (UPS) services for non-mission critical operations. In its breakdown of the competitive landscape of energy storage vendors providing UPS services — including companies like Siemens, Stem, APC by Schneider Electric, ABB and Eaton — Go Electric Inc. was named a key industry player because of its patented behind-the-meter AutoLYNC microgrid control technology.
“Navigant Research anticipates the emergence of new UPS service options for non-mission critical operations,” said William Tokash, senior research analyst in the Utility Transformations program. “This new option will leverage distributed energy storage system technology that can provide grid services as well as customer benefits like UPS service and lower peak energy use.”
An earlier Navigant Research report, Military Microgrids, published in October 2017, names Go Electric as a Key Industry Player providing microgrid technology to the Department of Defense, which was deployed at three military installations through contracts awarded by the Department of Defense.
The recently published Commercial & Industrial Energy Storage Report also spotlights Go Electric for its AutoLYNC technology’s unique capacity to provide customers with uninterruptible power and grid services. The report from business information provider IHS Markit, evaluates the current market presence, future growth strategy, software capabilities and demand response activity for 13 Leading Suppliers of commercial and industrial battery storage systems, including Go Electric, Stem, Green Charge and AMS.
“With the U.S. C&I energy storage market increasingly crowded, differentiation is crucial,” said Julian Jansen, senior market analyst for solar & energy storage at IHS Markit. “As such targeting the UPS segment may prove to be a successful strategy to target a market which remains underdeveloped by grid-storage developers.”
