Level 1: Guided Service

With this service, Fluence trains and certifies the owner’s maintenance technicians, enabling them to operate the system as well as perform preventative and reactive maintenance. Customers opting for Guided Service are comfortable taking responsibility for their system’s operational availability.

This level has limited performance guarantees, and requires quality control inspections and the periodic re-certification of maintenance teams.

Ideal for

Customers with little to no commercial performance requirements and a low level of risk for under-performance

Technicians with experience maintaining storage components such as inverters, fire suppression, HVAC and transformers

Risk

Level 2: Shared Service

Our Shared Service offering adds 24/7 monitoring, reactive maintenance, spare parts and preventative maintenance training for our customer’s technicians. Organizations selecting this option are comfortable taking on some risk and responsibility for their system, including its availability, but rely on Fluence’s expertise in performing more complex reactive maintenance tasks.

Limited performance guarantees and time-based availability are possible options for the Shared Service level.

This package allows the owner to focus on the financials of their business while Fluence manages all operational aspects and risk. Available in select markets.

Ideal for

Customers who do not have the capability or desire to manage the day-to-day operations of their energy storage facility and want a trusted partner to manage the asset on their behalf
