Kaco New Energy has presented its latest energy storage and management system, Powador-gridsave, with batteries supplied by Panasonic.
The compact-size system combines inverter, battery charging unit, storage and an intelligent management system in one case, including all DC- and AC-wiring.
Panasonic’s lithium-ion battery modules have a capacity of 1.35kWh each, and up to five modules can be fitted into the case. With a fully fitted case, Kaco New Energy says the Powador-gridsave can achieve a capacity of 6.75kWh.
For future projects, Kaco New Energy has signed a memorandum of understanding with Smart Energy Systems BU of Sanyo Electric, a group company of Panasonic. The MoU specifies delivery quantities and volumes up until 2015 that are required to guarantee the timely delivery of the Powador-gridsave. Shipping will start in autumn 2012.
In cooperation with its supplier, Kaco New Energy is looking to provide storage system solutions for both residential and industrial use. Sanyo provides the necessary process chain, from the manufacture of storage cells to their integration into a complex battery system with battery management.
