YOUTH POWER‘s battery system business for the US business will be fully launched. In commercial facilities such as buildings, a “smart power storage system” that supports power demand peak reduction and BCP (Business Continuity Planning) will be installed and sold. It will also be combined with the photovoltaic power generation system for linkage control.
In the United States, electricity bills are charged according to the maximum power demand (received power) within a certain period of time, etc., and the incentive range for peak power demand is relatively large. The “smart power storage system” using lithium-ion batteries predicts demand changes from past power utilization data, and discharges from the battery to cut peaks in accordance with the increase in power demand.
When a photovoltaic power generation system is installed on the roof of a building, a photovoltaic inverter (PCS) is used to convert the DC current of the solar panels and batteries into AC. While predicting the building’s power demand, it optimizes the control of the power, so that The power company’s power received is equalized.
In addition, in the event of a power outage during a disaster, the PCS can operate independently, using photovoltaic power generation and battery systems to supply power to meet the minimum power demand.
Three sets of “smart power storage systems” have been installed in California. In addition, there are systems in Arizona that are in operation with photovoltaic power generation equipment. In the case of the installation in Arizona, a 63kW Sharp solar panel was installed on the roof of a 6-story commercial building, and a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 81kWh was introduced.
