Fluence opens new tech center in India


Fluence has opened a new global technology center in Bengaluru, to support its existing tech teams in North America and Europe. It said it also plans to localize production in the medium to long term, in order to better serve Indian customers.

The technology center will support Fluence’s global product development by expanding its engineering skills, while strengthening its local market presence. The staff will work with their North American and Europe counterparts to launch new products and regionalize product support. For the Indian market, the company will offer control applications specific to local grid requirements and market services where projects are deployed.

“This team will be key to the expansion of our sixth-generation product line, which is delivering a range of critical grid services to customers around the world, as well as the creation of next-generation products,” said Fluence SVP and Chief Product Officer Rebecca Boll.

India has an ambitious renewables target of 500 GW by 2030, which is why Fluence sees the tech center and its joint venture with ReNew as just the beginning of its operations in the country. Its systems currently use LFP or NMC lithium-ion battery chemistries, but its product platform is designed to work with new chemistries as they become cost-competitive. The company has a diversified, global supply chain to feed its product manufacturing.

Fluence energy storage systems are equipped with integrated safety features and cooling systems and are designed for the climates in which they are deployed. The company has many projects in hot climates, including a project in Delhi and installations in Chile, the Dominican Republic, the Philippines, Australia, and the southwestern United States.
