Two New Applications For Energy Visualization & Simulation From Greensmith

Two new applications have been announced for Greensmith’s GEMS4 software technology platform. The simulation application, called StorageModel, helps customers create the most effective system for energy storage by taking into account system data, battery information, and technical specifications.


Then this information is used to simulate what happens when certain design decisions are made. In other words, you can test out different choices in the software before you spend money on energy storage equipment. “Similar to advanced simulation systems used in other technology industries, the GEMS StorageModel application can improve the success of grid-scale energy storage systems by exposing key design trade-off decisions, from battery selection to sizing to application mix. As an integral part of the current GEMS platform, the StorageModel application reflects the maturity of the Greensmith technology and offers immediate economic advantages to our customers and partners.”

You can imagine how valuable it would be to decision-makers to be able to preview equipment choices in a storage system, and get a sense of how they all might work together so they have better insight into what to purchase.

The second application is for visualizing information so managers can get insights to help them optimize energy storage performance. Managing grid-scale systems well requires skill and knowledge, but information from analytics can help a lot too. Visually well-presented data can be very beneficial.

“The GEMS StorageView visualization application provides energy storage owners with a navigable, real-time 3D model of their energy storage systems. As the industry is beginning to understand the importance of software control and design, energy storage owners now have a new management tool to help them discover valuable performance characteristics of their energy storage system down to the battery module level, across their fleet of systems, all from a central console,” said Greensmith VP of Engineering, Sen Zhang.

Greensmith is a leading energy storage company in the United States.

  • Very interesting and making me wonder when something similar will be available on the residential level as well as the commercial..
    Maybe the situation has improved over the past ten years, but when doing the planning for my system and collating the results from the spreadsheets from three different solar equipment suppliers it still took a couple of years of tinkering to make sure that we didn’t have to use the generator.
    For people tied to the grid it doesn’t matter if their solar production comes up a few Kwh short now and then. But with all the talk of cheaper storage and grid defection someone is going to have to come up with an application that does a better job of planning systems that provide the power people need in all seasons and weather. Maybe it is being done in Australia or Germany now, so it would be interesting to hear about an application or software that do the planning on a residential as well as commercial level.
    Hint hint, Zach. 🙂
