Yotta, a developer of innovative panel-level energy storage solutions, and PanelClaw, a specialist in flat roof racking, are pleased to announce that they will be working to develop Yotta’s patented SolarLEAF energy storage solutions as an attachment to PanelClaw’s rooftop racking solution. The company reports that the SolarLEAF system is the world’s first and only thermally protected panel-level energy storage solution. It can be seamlessly integrated in the PanelClaw system and will be placed in lieu of heavy concrete blocks.
PanelClaw’s flat roof racking systems will come pre-engineered and fully equipped for the SolarLEAF attachment, making the addition of energy storage simple for solar developers and utilities by eliminating the design and site-specific complexities that come with centralized storage. The SolarLEAF reduces project and operational costs by eliminating the need for large enclosures, HVAC and fire suppression systems required by other battery technologies. It also lowers expensive shipping costs associated with heavy ballasts and centralized energy storage systems. Yotta’s patented passive thermal regulation technology shields the battery from both hot and sub-freezing temperatures, resulting in a longer service life, industry-leading efficiency for combined solar-plus-storage and higher overall solar generation.
PanelClaw has installed over 1.3 gigawatts of flat roof racking deployed around the world including over 100 megawatts in Europe alone.
