Expert System Sizing
IHI’s proprietary software simulates the designed system and selects the optimal control platform, inverter, and other major components for your needs, as well as determines the optimal battery model and size given the parameters provided. The simulator is technology-agnostic and selects the best components available for the designed system.
Real-time Autonomous Operation
ESWare’s real-time data integration, machine learning forecasting, and cloud based operation are the basis for the autonomous operation mode. Selecting autonomous operation mode automatically dispatches the energy storage system (while other available modes allow for more hands-on control of the system).
The components of the ESWare Suite are built with a focus on reliability and scalability, and are effective from approximately hundreds of kW to hundreds of MW across multiple applications.
ES/Analyzer provides investment analysis and use case evaluation including: NPV, IRR, ROI, peak shaving forecasting, T&D deferrals, renewables support, demand charge reduction, energy arbitrage, Ontario Global Adjustment reduction, and more.
Fleet Management and Reporting
The ESWare suite can manage multiple storage systems and provide a centralized control platform, streamlining operation and deployment.
Warranty and Performance Guarantee
IHI Energy Storage offers a warranty and advanced performance guarantee for each project, grounded in the reliability of the end-to-end ESWare software suite and the expertise of IHI Corporation backing the IHI Energy Storage team.
IHI Corporation has been a leader in the industrial sector since 1853. Originally established as Ishikawajima Shipyard, IHI has expanded into various spheres of industry such as energy & environment, industrial systems, aero & space engines, and social infrastructure. IHI’s global history, experience, and expertise provides bankability and support to its various subsidiaries and sister companies, all working under the corporate message of “Realize your dreams,” describing IHI’s mission to help bring society to new levels of technological advancement.
In 1977, IHI Corporation developed an American branch, led by IHI, Inc. IHI, Inc. provides support to all American subsidiaries and divisions of IHI Corporation, including IHI Energy Storage.
IHI Energy Storage was established as a division of IHI, Inc. in 2014. The group was positioned to develop software and provide energy storage products and services utilizing the software. In an effort to develop advanced optimization capabilities, IHI Energy Storage purchased the ESWare suite from 24M – an advanced, non-linear, economic algorithm based software. Since then, IHI Energy Storage has developed the software suite into the robust product and service offerings available today. IHI Energy Storage now provides system integration and O&M services with solutions built around the core product, the ESWare software suite.
