A wide range of SimpliPhi Power’s energy storage products and system configurations were recently approved for Certification under UL 9540. The AccESS, BOSS.6 & BOSS.12 systems can be used individually or in combination to achieve multiple, robust solutions across residential and commercial applications, both on & off grid, and AC or DC coupled. SimpliPhi Power also completed UL 9540A cell and module testing — the industry’s most stringent fire-safety testing protocols — affirming the inherent safety advantages of using cobalt-free, non-toxic lithium ferro phosphate (LFP) battery chemistry.
Deep cycle lead-acid batteries are the most-recycled consumer product in North America. Delivering proven performance, flooded models continue to be the most affordable energy storage solutions for residential off-grid & backup systems. Browse the Rolls catalog here.
The U.S. market for energy storage had a breakout year in 2020 despite the global pandemic and economic slowdown, and is expected to grow from just under $1 billion in revenue last year to more than $7.2B in 2025, according to Wood Mackenzie. Sales at SimpliPhi Power grew more than 40% in 2020, as demand for safer lithium-ion chemistries continued to accelerate amidst a series of notable battery fires and global product recalls of cobalt-based lithium-ion batteries.
With systems operational in more than 40 countries, SimpliPhi products offer a decade of demonstrated safety and performance due to their proprietary manufacturing processes and inherently safe materials. SimpliPhi’s product line is based on the LFP lithium-ion chemistry, which is more cost-effective, longer lasting, and does not use cobalt, the primary hazard in other lithium-ion battery fires.
Why LFP? As more and more battery storage systems are installed in homes and businesses, building and fire codes, which vary from one jurisdiction to another, are rapidly adapting to accommodate customer demand. UL 9540 certification and 9540A fire safety testing eases the burden on local code officials and simplifies the approval process for new installations. Now, this wide selection of SimpliPhi Power system configurations can be approved and installed in just a few weeks, instead of months of lead time needed for competitor products that lack UL certification.
“Instead of limiting customers to a one-size-fits-all solution, we sought UL certification for a wide range of system configurations, using multiple SimpliPhi equipment components, such as the AccESS Sol-Ark, BOSS.12 and BOSS.6,” said Sequoya Cross, director of global sales & business development for SimpliPhi Power. “From 15.2 kilowatt-hours (kWh) up to 136kWh in one system, including single phase, split-phase, and three-phase setups, we have certified product offerings available to meet the resilient power needs of customers of all types – including residential systems, multi-family apartments, campuses, and commercial and industrial buildings.”
SimpliPhi Power’s network of Elite IQ installers and numerous distributor partners can deliver SimpliPhi’s line of UL9540 certified products all over the world.
