The Fluence Technology Stack

The Fluence Tech Stack combines hardware, controls, software, and intelligence into an integrated foundation for safe and repeatable energy storage systems that are tailored to your use case and application.

Fluence Cube

Modular, factory-built, standardized form factor delivers safe, scalable, cost-effective systems configurable with the latest storage components.

Fluence OS

Fully integrated operations platform combines comprehensive controls, asset management, and system visibility across single sites or entire fleets.

Fluence IQ

Extensible digital intelligence improves system decision-making, asset performance, and operating costs with data-driven insights and dispatch algorithms.

Easily Configurable

With its flexible architecture, Gridstack allows you to configure components to meet your precise requirements and optimize the system design to address specific market applications.

Gridstack can be easily customized while still leveraging the Fluence Cube’s simplified design, delivery, and maintenance.

Highly Scalable

Gridstack brings repeatability to large energy storage deployments, reducing implementation risks and lowering costs.

Its simple, scale-out design drives efficiencies in project permitting, delivery, and operations, and creates consistency across project locations to simplify training and O&M activities.

Total System Safety

Sunstack’s comprehensive safety features span its integrated hardware, software, and intelligence technology stack.

Designed to meet industry-leading safety standards, such as UL9540, UL9540A, and IEC compliance, Sunstack is equipped with emergency shutdown, system limits, fire suppression, incipient gas detection, deflagration panels and more. Safety is embedded throughout every level of Fluence OS, which continuously monitors, detects, and alerts operators to potential anomalies.

Hardware-enabled safety measures

Subsystems protect themselves in event of a fault or failure in another subsystem, with all components having undergone rigorous qualifications and certifications.

Robust Network and Cybersecurity Management

Our storage technology contributes to critical infrastructure around the globe.To protect our customers and their networks from malicious attacks, Fluence complies with industry leading cyber security practices.

We follow the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework➚ to incorporate the latest security features, including high grade, 256-bit encryption, enterprise-class network security and firewall protection, multifactor authentication, weekly vulnerability scanning, and more.

On-site

Fluence systems include enterprise-class network security, with firewall software monitoring and controlling all local network traffic.

Secure, role-based user access is done via VPN with multi-factor authentication and 256-bit encryption.

In transit

High Grade, AES 256-bit encryption is used to protect all data in transit from local systems to virtual private cloud (VPC).

Data in transit takes place over secure, site-to-site VPN tunnels.

In the cloud

A secure, logically isolated cloud environment uses restrictive firewall and security group rules to limit connectivity within the VPC.

All external access to the cloud is done using VPN with multi-factor authentication.

It’s in our DNA.

Fluence understands the complexity of critical industries and will work with you to design the optimal energy storage solution for your needs.
