Energy company Younicos, which specializiruetsya on the energy storage systems, has signed an agreement with Panasonic for the development and creation of the General system of solar energy storage in Peña NEXT Station in Denver, Colorado (USA), which are operational centres Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Co and Panasonic CityNOW.
The system will allow you to use multiple batteries Younicos Y. Cube, which represent a "battery in a box" German-American pioneer of the industry.
The project provides four Y. Cube will be installed at the Panasonic factory in Denver. They are capable of storing 1 MW and will be connected to the grid Xcel Energy. The system will be on the software to control the storage of energy Younicos Y. Q.
This will allow Panasonic, Xcel Energy and other stakeholders to get the maximum benefit from a solar electric system Xcel Energy, which is located at the Parking lot of the panels and power 259 kW on the roof of the building.
— We are very pleased to work with Panasonic on a project that will show all the advantages of our system Y. Cube for commercial and industrial use. As Younicos, Panasonic is a technology leader with a strong emphasis on the advantages of solar energy storage in various applications. They and the local power grid to obtain a significant benefit for this resource, — said Stephen Prince, CEO of Younicos.
Y. Cube consists of two sub-corpora: the first is a system of energy conversion, second — battery DC. All the controls are built into the control system and connected directly with a battery system that avoids the need for additional communication interfaces. Optimized configuration provides fast response time to improve the efficiency of the management system and advanced mesh generation.
Y. Cube is available in two variants – in modules 250 and 500 kVA that can be used both separately and connect in a more powerful network. There is also no need for costly installation, which saves not only money but also time.
It is expected that the system will be completed and commissioned in April 2017. published
