Who is GridEdge?

GridEdge battery storage

GridEdge is a boutique renewable energy supplier that uses the FIAMM SoNick battery.

GridEdge delivers both off grid and on  grid energy supply to all levels of consumer demand. We have the FIAMM SoNick battery and the GridEdge Quantum unit for residential and small business needs that can operate as a hybrid solution or a completely off grid installation. GridEdge also has container solutions, in various sizes,  which can replace the need for expensive and noisy diesel generators or can provide power for a micro-grid or remote installation.

GridEdge is the Australian distributor for the FIAMM SoNick battery. FIAMM are the market leader for the Sodium Nickel Chloride technology (SoNick) and offers batteries and storage solutions, that are scalable for all sizes, ranging from residential FIAMM SoNick batteryor industrial through to national utility applications.

The SoNick technology is not a new untried technology and has been in use in many countries of the world for over 10 years and is just now becoming available in Australia.

One reason the FIAMM SoNick battery is so well suited to the Australian market is due to it’s superior temperature operating range. Where most other batteries operate effectively between roughly 5°C to 35°C the FIAMM SoNick battery operates effectively from -20°C to 60°C. As we have more and more days with temperatures over 35°C the FIAMM SoNick battery is one of the only batteries that can operate effectively in the increased temperatures. It is also completely self contained, so doesn’t need cooling or ventilating

The FIAMM SoNick battery is much more compact than most other batteries currently available and due to its much smaller footprint will be able to be used in many more applications. It also has a much more visually appealing design than many other batteries. so it doesn’t have to be hidden somewhere due to it’s unappealing looks.

The FIAMM SoNick technology solves the environmental recycling challenge, as all components are 100% recyclable and there is already a recycling program in place to recycle the battery. This means, FIAMM technology fulfills the holistic call for fully ecological energy usage.Quantum

Grid Edge has developed its own plug and play smart energy storage solution, that uses the rechargeable Sodium Nickel battery technology. This “Quantum” unit has an invertor incorporated into it as well as all the wiring and BMS system to allow you to monitor your battery from anywhere. It is designed to be easily installed without the need for long installation times needed by expert renewable energy qualified installers which reduces the installed cost. The Grid Edge Quantum unit is designed to store energy at a residential or small commercial level for load shifting, backup power and self-consumption of solar power generation.

The SoNick battery needs no maintenance and has a much lower “Life cost of ownership (LOC)” or “Total cost of ownership (TOC)” than most other batteries available today, which is a very definite plus.
At Grid Edge we believe in making the environmental changes necessary today,
because tomorrow may be too late. Do you?
