Cell Design & Monitoring
Thermal Control System
Smart Energy Consumption
Discharge at times of peak demand to avoid or reduce demand charges.
Shift energy consumption from one point in time to another to avoid paying high energy prices. Where applicable, this price optimization accounts for solar or other on-site generation.
Provide intermediate backup power to your business in the event of a grid interruption. This function can be standalone or tied to solar.
Discharge instantly in response to signals from a demand response administrator to alleviate peaks in system load.
Build a localized grid that can disconnect from the main power grid, operating independently and reinforcing overall grid resilience.
Smooth and firm the output of a renewable power generation source such as wind or solar.
Provide power and energy capacity to the grid as a standalone asset.
Charge or discharge instantly to provide frequency regulation, voltage control, and spinning reserve services to the grid.
Transmission & Distribution Support
Supply power and energy capacity at a distributed location to defer or eliminate the need to upgrade aging grid infrastructure.
Fully Integrated Solution
Powerpacks house the world’s most sophisticated batteries. Each Powerpack is a DC energy storage device containing 16 individual battery pods, a thermal control system and hundreds of sensors that monitor and report on cell level performance.

Vector views energy storage as the way of the future and is integrating the Tesla Powerpack on to our network, creating a solution that will benefit our customers and other businesses.
Tesla provided a turnkey energy storage solution at the best price per kWh for the largest off-grid project in the Pacific Islands. The project is a great success, and we look forward to working with Tesla again on our next project.
At AMS, we need the most advanced energy storage to harness more than a million square feet of building load to power the electric grid. Tesla Energy consistently delivers outstanding reliability and technology innovation to our projects.
With Tesla Energy, we have taken a two-fold approach to energy management at our wineries by improving operational efficiency across all levels of our organization and reinvesting those savings in onsite renewable energy systems.
Target is excited to be partnering with Tesla to incorporate battery storage into our energy strategy. This technology offers unique benefits to powering our buildings, most importantly relieving stress from the electrical grid at peak times to support to our communities.
