battery storage system for solar energy
Posted Thursday 26th July, 2012
Organisations can now use their generated solar energy even when the sun isn't shining, with the launch of TRI-CELL, a highly-efficient storage system for solar power from TRITEC.
TRI-CELL makes it possible for organisations that generate their own clean energy through solar PV panels to store this energy and use it later. TRI-CELL's combination of an intelligent energy management system, modular inverters and battery technology mean that solar PV systems can work at maximum efficiency at all times, increasing the financial savings on offer from solar power.
Advanced battery technology
The lithium iron nano-phosphate batteries used by TRI-CELL - which are well-established, safe and environmentally-friendly- have a nominal voltage of 96V. The batteries are comprised of 3.2V blocks, with a capacity of between 60 and 100 ampere hours, depending on the configuration.
Electronic monitoring of all cells prevents individual cells from overcharging and exhaustive discharge. As a result, the batteries are highly reliable. What's more, the batteries have a lifespan of approximately 5,000 charging and discharging cycles, which means that they will last, on average, 20 years.
Independence from the public power supply
TRI-CELL's modular inverters have grid feed-in function for on-grid and off-grid operation. This means that organisations generating their own solar power can choose whether or not to feed their excess power into the national grid, depending on their needs. TRI-CELL gives the potential for a solar PV system to be largely independent from the public power supply.
TRI-CELL can be used in single-phase or three-phase parallel operation, which guarantees high efficiency. The secure electric separation of module connections, battery and mains supply ensures a high degree of safety and enables the utilisation of thin-layer modules.
Steve Griffiths, Sales and Marketing Director at TRITEC UK, comments: -Day or night, regardless of the weather, it's now possible to take advantage of solar power right around the clock, by using the TRI-CELL storage system. Maintenance free and highly reliable, TRI-CELL's state-of-the-art technology opens up the potential for even greater financial savings from your solar PV system by maximising its efficiency.

As the East Midland's principal unitary authority, Leicester City Council is the primary residential landlord in the area, responsible for a social housing stock of over 22,000 properties. To ensure that its properties are kept in the optimum state of repair, the Council employs a large mobile workforce of skilled trades operatives (bricklayers, carpenters, plasterers, plumbers, electricians, roofers, painters and decorators etc). This workforce undertakes all of the planned and reactive maintenance and renovation work on the properties, with job allocation and scheduling organised on a daily, and potentially, real-time basis. » Read More
