Advanced modelling software for managing intermittant energy supplies

E-Sims

​​

Published on 26 July 2016

​Software solutions and energy storage management systems. Esims offering centers on an attractive marketing proposition that sees a reduction on the management cost of energy storage for batteries for photovoltaic power stations by 25-30% per kWh. The company is currently in incubation and is scheduled to spin-off from the Liten in 2015.

E-sims’ software help the managers of solar power stations to decide in real time how to best manage their power; whether to keep producing energy or store or sell it. All new photo-electric power stations include batteries so that production surplus can be stores and injected into the grid for the best price. However it costs more to store a kWh of photovoltaic power than to produce it.

E-sims tools bring together high-performance modeling storage systems (lead, lithium, high-temperature etc) together with important financial modeling tools. Based on 15 years of R&D developed by the CEA, validated via French/European research programmes, E-sims’ software is suited for photovoltaic power stations from 36kW to 1MW. A decrease in management costs for stored energy of around 25-30% can be expected as a result of E-Sims product.
E-Sims intends to commercialise its products in two key ways: via the implementation of licence agreements or the sale of service offerings covering the installation of its analytical tools and ongoing analysis as well as the implementation of diagnostic reports relating to the performance of the power station.
