Battery Energy Storage Systems

Battery Energy Storage Systems | Load Shedding Battery

REVOV offers ideal energy storage systems for homes and businesses.

These take the form of automotive-grade lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries – the highest available grade of lithium battery, originally designed for use in electronic vehicles (EVs).


  • 10-year warranty (or 3 500 cycles at 1 cycle per day)
  • superior efficiency and depth of discharge (DoD)
  • compact, light and safe
  • easy to install and practically maintenance-free.

EV batteries that are repurposed for “second life” use as stationary energy storage systems are also much more affordable than other lithium iron batteries.

They’re suitable as residential, business and industrial energy storage systems.

Cost-effective battery backup power for during load shedding

A REVOV LiFePO4 battery is the ideal battery for load shedding. Simply charge from the grid. Then use the stored energy when it’s needed during outages.

The batteries are also ideal as off-grid energy storage systems with solar or wind installations.

Battery energy storage system definition

A battery-based energy storage system uses one or more rechargeable batteries to store electric charge for later use.

Why this is useful:

  • reliable backup power during grid outages
  • solar energy storage for when the sun isn’t shining
  • for companies, load shifting and peak shaving to reduce energy costs.

Find the right battery energy storage system for you.

Types of battery energy storage systems

Home energy storage systems

Home and small business systems most commonly use one of three battery types.

Lithium iron batteries
Lithium iron batteries (like those REVOV supplies) offer longer life span and much higher depth of discharge (DoD) than lead acid batteries. They’re also safer and more environmentally friendly.

Lead acid batteries
Lead acid batteries have been used for decades and are comparatively inexpensive. However, they have shorter life spans, are less efficient and require more maintenance. They also contain sulphuric acid, which is hazardous.

Saltwater batteries
Saltwater batteries don’t use heavy metals and are the most environmentally friendly. However, they have lower energy density and so have to be about twice as large as lithium batteries. They also take longer to charge and discharge.

Industrial grid energy and battery energy storage

Grid-scale or industrial energy storage systems most commonly use lithium iron batteries, redox-flow batteries (RFB) or zinc-hybrid batteries.

Each battery energy storage system design has pros and cons.

Overall, flow batteries need a lot more space – and both zinc-hybrid and flow batteries require more costly power-converter systems – than lithium-iron solutions.

REVOV changed our lives. Power will no longer be a problem in our household. I would recommend REVOV to all home owners, their service and products are great!
