Energy Storage

RDD 105. Boston Scientific Energy Storage Project - KingspanRDD 101. Flexigrid - Solo Energy Ltd

The Boston Scientific Energy Storage Project is a unique project for Ireland demonstrating the potential benefits of energy storage technology to enhance the value of embedded renewable generation technology to business and assist in controlling and reducing energy costs.

This project will involve the installation of the first Tesla Powerpack system at an industrial scale in Ireland. This project will deliver an embedded asset which is a truly active player in the energy market taking advantage of time-of-use pricing and shifting green energy to a time where it is most advantageous.

Solo Energy is an innovative Irish start up with a 100%- renewable energy supplier business model that revolves around the deployment of a distributed demand-side energy storage network to shift energy supply to customers from periods of peak demand and peak wholesale energy price, to periods of peak renewable generation and low wholesale energy price. Solo plan to deploy fully financed energy storage systems to each new customer site by late 2016 and as a precursor to physical deployment, will undertake the FlexiGrid Project.

The FlexiGrid Project is research to model the impact of a storage network on existing and future grid infrastructure using Power Systems analysis software coupled with physical testing of system components in a lab micro-grid.
