Nov. 1, 2013 John Jung, CEO of Greensmith Energy Management Systems has been recognized as a 2013 Smart Grid Pioneer by Smart Grid Today, for a second consecutive year. Greensmith Energy Management Systems is a provider of energy storage technologies and solutions with over 30 systems deployed utilizing its advanced, battery-agnostic technology platform. The company now offers “a la carte” energy storage software, design and grid integration services to a variety of energy storage participants.
Energy Storage Journal Oct. 31, 2013 Following the release of its latest version of energy storage software and integration services Greensmith Energy Management Systems will supply new energy storage projects in the US. The Maryland-based company specializes in developing software for specific energy storage applications for utilities and commercial clients, sourcing batteries and other hardware from different suppliers for integration into its energy storage systems. Greensmith’s latest system software, BOS4, has five core improvements. These include an expansion on application functionality for demand charge optimisation and frequency regulation, a reduction in the complexity of mechanical architecture and the integration of two additional battery chemistries. BOS4 is shipping now, following an initial release in August during a successful factory acceptance testing of a 1 MW system which will be installed in southern California. Several upcoming projects will use BOS4, explains Greensmith CEO John Jung. ‘These include large frequency applications, a commercial and industrial multifunctional application featuring demand charge management, a commercial and industrial application featuring two additional battery chemistries and a retrofit of an underperforming set of batteries and inverters from a different vendor in central California.’ Greensmith has also started upgrading some of its customers looking to expand the capabilities of their earlier systems. In addition, Greensmith plans to make its BOS4 software platform more flexible by offering a standard API to customers so they may write their own proprietary applications. API is the bridge between software routine that is used to perform a function and the operating system or platform, based on a mix of rules, codes and standards. APIs embedded in Greensmith’s platform allow customers and partners to develop software-based functionality to support energy storage for solving grid congestion issues with intelligence, software and data, not only components like batteries, and maximizing the capture of value streams.
