The company was founded in 2012 as a collaboration between companies from three continents and is looking to quickly make inroads in Australia by offering intelligent, affordable and flexible battery storage solutions. Alpha-ESS has three main offerings: Its all-in-one, plug-and-play, lithium-ion Storion solution, its lead-crystal Alpha-Centauri solution, and its PowerPlug lithium-ion battery bank.

AlphaESS - Storion seriesAlpha-ESS Storion

The Storion is a complete, intelligent cabinet-based energy storage solution using lithium-iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries, which are available in modular 3kWh units. Storion’s battery capacity can be expanded up to 18kWh, and its built-in hybrid 3kW and 5kW inverters can handle both battery and PV inputs, enabling a wide range of possible designs and applications. It also comes equipped with an adaptable energy management system (EMS) to maximise energy bill savings according to how the system is set up.

Key product features & benefits:

  • Advanced design and functionality at competitive price-point
  • Multifunctional, plug-and-play energy storage system for a wide range of applications
  • Safe, reliable LiFePO4 batteries from some of the world’s largest battery manufacturers; each battery unit has sophisticated battery management system (BMS) with multi-layered safety protections
  • Grid backup functionality allows essential loads to run on solar and/or batteries even when the grid is down.
  • Modular battery design – battery capacity can be sized to meet individual needs or for future expansion
  • Intelligent EMS (Alpha Cloud) manages prioritisation of solar, grid or batteries depending on availability in order to maximise savings and overall system efficiency
