Macro Tower Backup - Green Cubes Technology | Lithium-ion Power Systems Manufacturer

Macro Tower Backup

Emergency and backup power are integral to the reliable operation of mission-critical communications systems and facilities, including telecom infrastructure and data centers. Diesel Generators have traditionally been used to provide emergency backup, but Clean Decarbonization and Electrification efforts are leading to Lithium-Ion Batteries becoming a viable alternative to Diesel Generators.

Large towers with multiple radios in city centers require a lot of energy to operate. As 5G equipment replaces legacy equipment that energy figure increases even more. Telecom battery backup systems typically have multiple 48V battery strings to provide backup power. Modular Lithium batteries are replacing legacy lead acid batteries to increase runtime and make up for the higher power demands of 5G telecom equipment.

Telecom Lithium Ion batteries are the critical pillar in a fossil fuel-free economy and their uses in stationary energy storage have grown exponentially in recent years, due to technological advances and significant price declines. This is making telecom Lithium Ion batteries a potential replacement for diesel generators too.

Macro Cell sites require 4 to 72 hours of backup power. Telecom Lithium Ion batteries are more energy dense, meaning they can provide more runtime in a smaller space than their alternatives. This allows operators to store more energy for use during power outages at remote cell sites in the same footprint they currently have.

Unlike diesel generators, when telecom lithium ion batteries are not used for backup, they can double up as Battery energy storage systems (BESS) that help address the imbalances of the grid, generally coming from excess or deficits between the production of electricity and consumption in real time.

Green Cubes can design and manufacture energy storage racks to meet the exacting requirements of emergency power backup (to replace Diesel Generators) and serve as BESS. Green Cubes Battery Backup Units (BBUs) can also be used as potential building blocks of a BESS. Green Cubes Lithium-Ion Systems provide the following benefits over Diesel Generators:

  • 48V Telecom
    Lithium Ion batteries deliver 48V as a modular energy solution. Powering telecom battery backup applications with as little as 2 batteries for N+1 redundancy.
  • Carbon Footprint
    Lithium-Ion Batteries offer a clean environment friendly option over diesel generators and their harmful CO2 emissions.
  • Less maintenance
    Lithium-Ion batteries do not require maintenance like diesel generators or lead acid batteries.
  • Higher energy density
    Lithium-Ion Batteries offer the highest energy density enabling them to consume same or lesser space compared to diesel generators.
  • Lower Operating Costs
    Lithium-Ion based storage provide a lower operating cost compared to increasing diesel prices.
  • Parallel Revenue Stream
    Lithium-Ion Batteries can provide a parallel revenue stream through BESS enabled services.

Customer Ratings and Reviews

Green Cubes is a great company, great engineers, great product. That’s been kind of my number one go to [lithium] battery.

President, Industrial Power Company

The thing I like about Green Cubes is that they have other lines of business outside of material handling batteries, they have been in the lithium world for a long time. I can trust they will likely stay in business

VP, Industrial Battery Company

Green Cubes [differentiates] on its capability to custom design for things like the hardware, the firmware, and inverters. They also have economies of scale because they make battery systems for things like forklifts.

VP, Powered Cart OEM

I am doing some work with them right now. We’re learning their products, and looking at demos. They have good people. They seem like they know the technology well – they say they’re a technology company. I like that they’ve been in the lithium business a long time. I can trust they will likely stay in business.

Sales Manager, Industrial Battery Company

Green Cubes Technology would be my go-to for lithium applications.

Branch Manager, OEM

I’ve told my friends at Green Cubes, I don’t plan on going anywhere. I believe in loyalty.
