A key aspect of vertical integration within KORE Power lies in the ability to control and innovate at every step of the production process. The Energy Storage Systems (ESS) are critical to this strategy, particularly the battery racks, which house the cells developed earlier in this series.

KORE Power's battery racks, specifically the P1 and P2 models, detail KORE Power’s commitment to precision and care. The P1 335 NMC and P2 750 LFP models are designed to ensure compatibility and durability across various applications. These dual chemistry options unlock both high-demand and long-duration applications for ESS. Born from a vertical integration strategy, these models, used in KORE Power’s DC Blocks, enhance product innovation and system efficiencies, ensuring quality and reliability.

  • P1 335 NMC: This rack utilizes KORE Power’s K155 NMC (Nickel Manganese Cobalt) pouch cells, which are optimized for high-demand applications. It features a nominal voltage of 1,265 Vdc and provides up to 335 kWh of usable energy. The operating voltage range is between 1,054 and 1,452 Vdc, designed for settings that require rapid energy deployment, such as EV charging stations and broader energy storage systems (ESS).
  • P2 750 LFP: Built around KORE Power’s K2280 LFP (Lithium Iron Phosphate) prismatic cells, this solution is tailored for longer-duration applications. It offers a substantial energy storage capacity of 750 kWh and operates within a voltage range of 1,176 to 1,491 Vdc. This system suits projects requiring durability and extended operational life, such as renewable energy integrations and large-scale energy storage.

Unlike the industry norm of out sourcing critical components, KORE Power strategically retains all production processes in-house. This decision is not just about maintaining control; it's about setting new benchmarks in the battery technology sector. The commitment to internal production demonstrates dedication to quality and innovation, ensuring each rack system meets or exceeds the highest quality standards. This approach gives customers confidence in complete control over processes and allows for the delivery of high-quality products.

Integrating KORE Power racks into existing power systems, such as the 750 LFP DC Block and the 1340 NMC DC Block, represents a strength of KORE Power's operational approach. The solutions division, located in Waterbury, Vermont, excels in addressing these varied demands of the energy sector. Whether deploying the 750 LFP DC Block, which utilizes the latest lithium iron phosphate technology for applications ranging from microgrid to utility-scale, or using the 1340 NMC DC Block, designed with advanced nickel manganese cobalt technology for high-demand applications, KORE Power delivers battery solutions designed for effectiveness and ease of installation. The versatility of these DC Blocks ensures they adapt seamlessly, enhancing the flexibility and resilience of any power infrastructure and giving clients the confidence that the solutions can meet specific needs. 

This detailed approach to vertical integration fosters innovation and agility in responding to market shifts and significantly reduces production costs. By retaining all production processes in-house, KORE Power eliminates the need for third-party manufacturers, leading to substantial savings. These cost reductions are passed on to customers, making KORE Power'senergy storage solutions economically and environmentally more attractive.
