Hawaiian Solar-Storage Peaker Project Now Online (Ind. Report)
AES Corp, Kaua’I Island Utility Cooperative
Date: 2019-01-14
In the Aloha State, the Kauai Island Utility Cooperative and AES Corp. are reporting completion of their joint solar and energy storage project with a "record-breaking photovoltaic peaker capacity" at Lawai.

The Lawai Solar and Energy Storage Project combines a 28-MW solar PV and 100-MWh five-hour duration energy storage system that meets roughly 11 pct of Kauai islands power needs -- more than 50 pct of Kauai island is powered by renewables, according to AES.

The project, which got underway last February, is owned and operated by AES Distributed Energy. The project's energy storage system incorporates SunPower's solar panels and 13,000 lithium-ion battery modules from Samsung SDI.

Hawaii has mandated the use of 100 pct renewable energy by 2045.(Source: AES, PR, Power Eng., 9 Jan., 2019) Contact: AES Corp., Andres Gluski, Pres., CEO, www.aes.com; Kauai Island Utility Cooperative, www.kiuc.coop

Hanwha Launches Home Energy Storage System (New Prod & Tech)
Hanwha Q CELLS,Samsung SDI
Date: 2018-11-23
South Korean solar cell and module maker Hanwha Q Cells Co., Ltd. is reporting the launch of its new scalable and modular energy storage system -- the Q.HOME+ ESS HYB-G2 -- in Germany. The Q.HOME+ ESS HYB-G2 is a scalable energy storage system (ESS) complete with hybrid (HYB) inverter, integrated with the Q.HOME MANAGER energy management control platform.

This latest iteration complements Q CELLS' existing All-In-One solution, the Q.HOME+ ESS-G1 inverter, battery and management system, and is initially sized at 4.0 kWh but can be scaled up to 20 kWh capacity at increments of 4 kWh each time. Such modularity makes the Q.HOME+ ESS HYB-G2 an ideal solution for end-consumers that may wish to start small with their storage, and scale upwards as required.

By integrating a hybrid bi-directional inverter into the system, the Q.HOME+ ESS HYB-G2 battery can rapidly and efficiently adapt to the customer's consumption requirements. The system incorporates lithium-ion battery cells supplied by Samsung SDI.
