Distributed Energy Storage: A Smarter Approach to Energy

Intelligent Energy Optimization
If you run a facility, you know the critical importance of energy efficiency and the ongoing need to reduce environmental impact. So do we: Efficiency and sustainability are key components of the Johnson Controls vision, and we deliver both with our distributed energy storage (DES) solutions.

We offer two types of DES systems—in-building and containerized. Our solutions combine lithium-ion batteries and sophisticated software to deliver substantial economic and operational benefits to your facility or enterprise: real, repeatable savings, effective use of renewable energy, and robust backup power.

At Johnson Controls, we combine more than 100 years of experience in batteries and intelligent controls with our longstanding prominence in facilities management to create reliable, resilient distributed energy storage systems for all kinds of applications. We incorporate advanced information technology, including machine learning and predictive controls, to deliver a custom, scalable energy solution to your site. The result is a positive ROI for you—and a great way to reduce your carbon footprint.

Optimize Your Energy System

Distributed energy storage systems use lithium-ion batteries and sophisticated technology to make it possible to absorb or release excess power quickly, offering multiple benefits to users. Because our systems are intelligent, they can easily be optimized to deliver different kinds of value.

Here are seven ways that a Johnson Controls distributed energy storage system can add value to your enterprise.

Multiple Benefits

Multiple Benefits

DES systems help you take advantage of alternative energy and improve energy resiliency. When renewable energy sources can’t provide enough power, a DES system can step in.

Reduce peak power rates by charging the DES system during periods of low demand and discharging during periods of high demand.

A Johnson Controls DES system can integrate with utility system infrastructures and absorb excess grid power or contribute needed power to support the overall power grid.

Lower your overall kWh costs by storing electric power when costs are low, and discharging it when costs are high.

Generate revenue by taking advantage of incentives to reduce peak consumption.

Distributed energy storage systems are useful backup power supplies to ensure continuity.

A DES system can improve a facility’s power factor and improve power quality.

Distributed Energy Storage Systems from Johnson Controls

The core of our DES systems is the rechargeable lithium-ion battery, which has become the technology of choice for thousands of consumer applications, electric vehicles, and on-site energy storage. Our distributed energy storage systems integrate large arrays of industrial-strength lithium-ion batteries with specialized software and control systems to permit flexible energy optimization. Our batteries are state-of-the-art and efficient; our software and controls make them invaluable to your facility.
