Energy Storage System

Generac Mobile recently introduced the new MBE30 Energy Storage System, a portable power supply that can be paired with a diesel generator to create a hybrid system that can save fuel, reduce emissions and lower sound levels. The system helps reduce total diesel generator running hours and cut fuel consumption, enabling the generator to work at its maximum efficiency for shorter durations while storing energy in a high-capacity battery backup. When the battery is charged and demand for power is low, the energy stored in the battery set is used to supply the load. When the battery runs low or the load increases, the generator is automatically started to supply additional power to the load and it recharges the batteries. The unit is offered either with lead-acid OPzV-S GEL (to 90kWh) or Li-Ion NMC (to 120kWh) battery technology. The unit will be available in 2022.
