    Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS): Grid Flexibility Asset of Today

  • Hanzel Cubangbang, Senior Market Applications Officer – SEA Fluence
  • The pursuit towards a Low-Carbon and Resilient Future is critical for our future. While technologies like Battery-based Energy Storage System (BESS) can address several grid challenges, they often dubbed as the more costly solution than traditional alternatives. But it is now becoming more known that BESS can be a more cost-effective solution if planned, coordinated and managed accordingly.
