Delta Electronics Introduces Innovative Battery Energy Storage Solution
VERSAILLES, France --(Business Wire)--
Delta Electronics (TWSE: 2308), a global leader in power and thermal
management solutions headquartered in Taiwan, announced today the launch
of a new Battery Energy Storage Solution (BESS), at a press conference
in Paris. This innovative energy-saving solution is complementary with
renewable energy production systems in smart grids, and helps managing
energy demand to ultimately reduce or defer the overall costs of grid
investment and power dispatch.
Delta developed this innovative energy storage system designed for smart
grid applications to optimize home energy balance. The system serves as
an 'energy reservoir' for electricity generated from the photovoltaic
(PV) module. The electricity which is stored in the batteries in the
system can either be used by the household when there is no sunlight, or
be fed into the grid when there is surplus energy.
Jackie Chang, president and general manager of Delta EMEA, said "thanks
to Delta's Battery Energy Storage Solution, the system showed a
significant reduction of grid power purchase. This new flexible and
modular system helps managing energy in a grid including intermittent
energy sources, such as solar energy. With this new solutio, Delta
contributes to smarter and greener energy management".
The Delta energy storage and management system is designed to be modular
and flexible in configuration. It can optimize energy consumption and
power dispatch according to customer profiles.
Significant benefits resulted from the Delta energy storage system
include 1. Reducing gird peak power demand; 2. Increasing the
utilization of renewable energy, such as the existing rooftop PV
installation; and 3. Reducing electricity bills by load shift and
avoiding high electricity tariffs.
The BESS system is a home energy system consisting of a complete Delta
composition, including rectifier, charger, micro-inverter, Li-ion
battery, controller, sensor module and an energy management system,
which can be remotely-controlled via mobile device. The Delta BESS
system will be available on market in 2015.
