As many power producers and suppliers move towards the retirement of fossil fuels and the need for energy storage increases, the demand for stationary energy storage systems is increasing rapidly. Combined with the global supply chain disruption that we are witnessing, procuring batteries is a today challenging task.
The findings that we are observing during our inspection and audit activities are very different from what we are seeing in the PV module industry. We do recommend establishing a solid quality management plan upfront with your BESS supplier, we recommend quality control and factory acceptance test built from the experience of failures and issues observed in the field, and we recommend following very closely both product development and delivery schedules to avoid surprises.
