With over 45 years’ expertise in energy conversion and more than 90 years in electrical protections, Socomec is now launching Energy Storage System (ESS) for on grid and off grid application with typical loads between 33 kW and 1 MW.

What is Socomec’s Energy Storage Solution? Socomec solution offers all the components of an ESS: batteries (lithium-ion and lead-acid), AC and DC protections and distribution cabinets (using Socomec wide products range), Power Conversion Systems SUNSYS PCS² and control systems. In case of microgrid applications with several sources of energy (Grid, Diesel Genset, Energy Storage…), Socomec also provides a paralleling cabinet to connect and synchronize these sources and to ensure continuity and quality of supply

Three frames of SUNSYS PCS² are available, with a power of 33, 66 or 100 KVA per unit. It is a scalable solution that can be put in parallel to reach MW scale installations, such as in the USA where the UL version is used in the largest indoor ESS installation. The SUNSYS PCS² can work with or without a grid connection. In case there is no grid, the SUNSYS PCS² IM for Islanding Mode will act as a voltage generator for the microgrid.

DNV GL, the world’s largest resource of independent energy experts and certification body, today published an update of its GRIDSTOR Recommended Practice (DNVGL-RP-0043) for grid-connected energy storage. The updated version incorporates the latest storage technologies and market developments and provides the most up to date recommendations on safety, operation and performance for grid-connected energy storage systems.

Stäubli Electrical Connectors (formerly Multi-Contact), the pioneer and global market leader in electrical connectors for Photovoltaic solutions, and Power-Blox the award-winning Swiss start-up enter into a strategic partnership for innovative energy storage solutions.

The commercial storage system manufacturer TESVOLT has supplied a battery storage system for the Coburger Hütte mountain refuge owned by the German Alpine Club (DAV) in Tyrol, Austria. The storage system, with a capacity of 77 kWh, replaces the old lead-acid battery and increases the solar power consumption of the cabin, which is fitted with a 16 kWp solar power system. The entire energy supply installation is tailored to meet the DAV’s stringent environmental and sustainability criteria for mountain regions, and will reduce the consumption of rapeseed oil as fuel.
