The global energy storage market has witnessed remarkable growth in recent years, and when coupled with electrification, the need for efficient and reliable Battery Management Systems (BMS) has become a front-burner issue. However, as energy storage and electrification converge, trends show offshore BMS and control software dominate critical industry sectors. To mitigate cybersecurity risks and protect against supply chain vulnerabilities, it is imperative to prioritize the development and utilization of domestic BMS and software solutions. In this post, we delve into the importance of enabling “Made in America” in battery management systems, with a focus on in-house designed Battery Management Systems at Acculon.
The Importance of Domestic Battery Management Systems
There are several important considerations surrounding domestic and onshoring efforts in the production of a safe, reliable BMS.
Enhancing Security: The reliance on offshore BMS hardware and control software raises significant cybersecurity concerns, particularly in industry sectors managing sensitive information and critical infrastructure, like the military and power grids, for example. By embracing domestic solutions, we can minimize the risk of unauthorized access and cyber-attacks, fortifying the security of our vital systems.
Protecting National Interests: Dependence on foreign suppliers for both BMS hardware and software leaves us vulnerable to supply chain disruptions, geopolitical tensions, and trade disputes. The trade disruptions over the last few years are a prime example of this. Embracing “Made in America” BMS solutions reduce our reliance on external sources, safeguards our national interests, and ensures continuity in the face of potential challenges.
Driving Technological Innovation: In-house BMS development fosters technological innovation and advancements. By investing in domestic talent and expertise, we can push the boundaries of battery management systems, enhancing efficiency, performance, and functionality. This innovation not only benefits local industries but also bolsters the competitiveness of the entire nation.
