A new battery match service is set to help utility companies choose the most suitable batteries as partners for their energy storage schemes. CBI Battery Match has been designed and built by the Consortium for Battery Innovation (CBI) to help electricity providers and other energy storage projects find a battery system that best meets their requirements. The online service is targeted at systems specifiers and integrators for utility and renewable energy companies and presents them with a series of potential battery partners, before linking them directly with battery manufacturers. Just like human dating apps, users tap in information about themselves together with details of their expectations and requirements. Using an intelligent algorithm based on battery industry expertise, a range of battery solutions best suited to their needs are identified in real-time. With a user-friendly interface available on desktop and mobile, energy storage end-users can log on to the tool, input their system requirements, and the outcome is a direct match with the battery best suited for their project. CBI Battery Match will enable direct communication between the energy storage company and the battery manufacturer, a streamlined process where inputted information results in the output of a battery.
