People Trust Hospitals with Their Lives. Hospitals Trust SimpliPhi with Their Power.

Energy resilience is important to any business, but hospitals and other medical facilities are especially vulnerable to power outages. When the power grid goes down, energy storage can ensure uninterrupted patient care and operations by securing life-saving medical equipment and data centers. SimpliPhi batteries allow hospitals and other healthcare facilities to self-sufficiently operate safely and reliably during power outages or in remote locations beyond the grid, without any downtime or unnecessary risk.

Hospital FAQs:

Are Lithium Ion Batteries Safe for a Hospital Environment?
SimpliPhi lithium ion batteries are safe for a hospital environment. Not all lithium ion batteries are the same. In fact, there are a variety of different lithium ion chemistries, many of which utilize cobalt, which makes them unstable, toxic, and unsuitable for medical environments. SimpliPhi storage solutions use lithium ferrous phosphate (LFP) to create batteries that are environmentally benign, non-toxic and do not pose any risk. Without the danger of fire or toxicity, SimpliPhi batteries are the ideal choice for hospitals.
What if Our Hospital Does Not Have Space for Large Battery Banks?
Space is often at a premium in medical facilities. SimpliPhi batteries have a very small footprint. This energy density, scalability and the fact that our batteries do not require ventilation, ancillary cooling or thermal monitoring equipment translates into higher efficiencies and smaller installations -- even in closets or utility rooms. In addition, because the batteries can operate safely in temperatures from -4° to 140°F, SimpliPhi storage can be installed indoors or outdoors.
Can SimpliPhi Help Reduce Our Facility’s Energy Costs?
Hospitals often use more energy than virtually any other type of commercial facility. Open 24-hours-a-day to thousands of employees, patients, and visitors, with sophisticated heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems and a wide range of energy intensive activities such as laundry, medical and lab equipment, sterilization, computers, food service, and refrigeration, hospital electricity costs represent a significant drain on financial resources and diverting dollars from critical care. SimpliPhi energy storage can help offset the costs of all that power and restore much needed funds to the operating budget. With PHI batteries, medical facilities can charge during off-peak hours and discharge to support electrical loads during peak rate periods. As a result, medical facilities are able to avoid spikes in utility rates as a result of high demand charges.
