After years of intensive research and extensive experience in power control and battery solutions, the Hybrid Battery Storage (HBS) range is here; “Made in Italy”, the product is a multi-functional, high flexible Energy Storage System (ESS)+UPS system.

The Hybrid Battery Storage working principle

Hybrid Battery Storage is a real energy gateway, optimizing the concept of energy management; capable to accept energy from multiple sources and to transfer or return it in order to implement the application to be served, including grid services.

The Hybrid Battery Storage by Riello is the first smart grid enabler.

Hybrid Battery Storage applications

  • Areas where the grid is available and there is the option of grid feeding (ON GRID)
  • Areas where the grid is available without “Grid feeding” (ON GRID)
  • Areas where the grid is not available (OFF GRID)

The innovative Serie Hybrid Battery Storage offers a long list of advantages, granting a reduction of the operating costs through an accurate and smart use of the energy, combined with a safe and reliable power supply to the electrical equipment.

The business segment applications are manifold:

  • E-Mobility
  • Industrial & Data Center
  • LEC
  • Local Energy Community
  • Energy Rental Business

HBS is compatible with multiple energy accumulator types, enabling the selection of the right solution for each application: lead acid battery, supercaps but also lithium and 2nd life EV batteries. The Riello lithium battery proposal incorporates several solutions spanning a large number of application requirements that meet the most pressing market demands.
