This is the second article in a two-part discussion covering insights gathered from operators about the kinds of monitoring and decision-support tools they are looking for in managing the long-term performance of energy storage systems.

We still have much to learn about the safe, reliable and economic operation of this new and very important energy asset class. The industry needs to equip owners and operators with the tools and information they need to safely and reliably manage this asset of today and tomorrow.
Again, I would like to thank Michael Eyman and Josh Corbitt of Origis Services and Ken Kim of Origis Energy for their expertise and contributions to these articles. Origis is a leader in operating and maintaining solar and energy storage systems throughout North America.
Steve Hanawalt’s comprehensive part II covers these topics:
- Tracking other key BESS operating parameters
- Regulatory and commercial monitoring
- Equipment monitoring and safety
