Saft has installed two Li-ion energy storage systems to boost the operational efficiency of the existing solar PV plant at EXKAL’s Marcilla manufacturing facility in Navarra, Northern Spain. The Saft Intensium Mini E systems provide peak shaving to reduce peak demand charges from the site’s electricity supplier as well as increasing self-consumption of solar power. The result is […]
Saft is building an Alliance with other European partners to launch research, development and industrialization for new generations of batteries focusing on high-density Li-ion and solid-state technology. The program addresses all market segments, such as electro-mobility (EV, e-Bus, Railway, Marine, Aviation), energy storage (ESS) and specialty industries. These new generation batteries will provide performance, cost […]
Solar installers have many different options when it comes to batteries, but they aren’t one-size-fits-all. Contractors must be careful not to under- or over-size an energy storage system. According to Stacey Delzeit, Trojan Battery Co.’s senior applications engineer, if the solar battery bank is undersized, its lifespan will be reduced because the daily depth of […]
Saft, a manufacturer of high technology batteries for industry, has been awarded a megawatt-scale Li-ion battery energy storage contract by Fortum, the Finnish energy company.
Energy storage, though currently in its infancy, is predicted to be crucial to the growth of solar. To learn more about the market and technology, we spoke with Laurent Mahuteau, Saft’s Technical Sales & Project Manager.
Saft, a designer and manufacturer of high-tech industrial batteries, has delivered its Intensium Max+ 20M containerized Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) with innovative “Cold Temperature Package” on schedule during Q3 2015, to Kotzebue Electric Association Inc. (KEA), an electric cooperative based in Kotzebue, Alaska. The system will let the existing hybrid wind-diesel power system achieve […]
Saft is at Intersolar Europe to launch its Intensium Home 10 M lithium-ion (Li-ion) energy storage system that offers high performance intended for high-end residential and small commercial solar PV installations. The new system has been developed to complement Saft’s established range of Li-ion energy storage systems. In a partnership with KACO new energy, Saft is offering […]
Saft, designer and manufacturer of high-tech industrial batteries, has become the first manufacturer in the world to offer an extended warranty of up to 15 years on its Synerion Li-ion battery modules. Saft’s domestic scale ESS solutions are based on its Synerion Li-ion battery modules, each of which delivers around 2 kWh energy and up […]
Winter temperatures in Alaska can drop to -50°C, making power outages bad news. One way to prevent them is an emergency power source that feeds energy into the grid until back-up generation can come online. Battery backup is an economic and ecological alternative to ‘spinning reserve’ – gas turbines kept running in case of an […]
