POWERING THE FUTURE
BYD Battery storage System
The technically advanced, affordable battery that Australia has been waiting for is here — introducing the B-BOX LV. BYD, the world’s largest lithium-ion battery manufacturer, in conjunction with Australian local engineers, have customized the B-BOX for the Australian market. The B-BOX is an excellent battery. The innovative modular design means additional batteries can be added to increase storage capacity, providing more power without increasing the battery’s footprint. The B-Box is a cabinet that can fit four 2.5kWh modules and scalable up to 80kWh, making the unit more versatile for installers to size the appropriate solution for residential and commercial customers. The modular design allows for a much smoother installation process as each module weighs only 35kg. Let’s break that down: if there was a 10kWh installation, instead of having to maneuver around a bulky unit that weights around 100kg, the installer can simply mount the cabinet and then install the battery modules one by one. This means the installation time is faster and fewer people are required.
BYD batteries use lithium iron phosphate chemistry which is widely considered as the safest and most stable set of a compound for lithium-ion batteries. This makes the battery even more robust in terms of installation locations and environments. The enclosure is also IP55 rated and allows both indoor and outdoor operations. With the high scalability, flexibility and safety features of the BYD B-Box, the unit is a great choice in selecting the ideal solutions for energy storage applications.
