StorTera have recently become a Tier 1 supplier to Dialog Axiata, the largest mobile telecoms network provider in Sri Lanka and part of the Axiata Group Berhad who are responsible for servicing over 350 million subscribers across 11 countries in Asia. We are currently installing our intelligent energy and storage systems alongside solar PV arrays in a number of their telecoms towers to provide reliable green energy whilst also reducing OPEX and substantially reducing CO2 emissions in remote and bad-grid locations where diesel power has historically been necessary.
Funded by Innovate UK, StorTera has developed an easily deployable 5kW/5kWh battery backpack in collaboration with a Sri Lankan based charity that can be carried to remote locations to support people affected by natural disasters. The Emergency Energy Supply Unit (EESU) can supply power to refrigerators, fans, lights, water heaters and can be used to charge mobile phones and radios that are critical to maintain communications during disasters. The EESU can be charged by solar panels, grid or by using a generator. The system was designed in response to a long term need identified by aid organisations working in disaster relief.
StorTera installed a demonstrator SLIQ single liquid flow battery in the office of Knoydart Renewables in the off-grid community of Inverie in April 2017. The installed system has a rating of 8kW/30kWh, enough to provide Knoydart Renewables with sufficient power to continue to run their office and maintain communications during the frequent black-outs experienced in the area.
In an ideal showcase for the versatility of our off-grid intelligent inverter and energy storage range, an off-grid farmhouse near Fort William in rural Scotland recently benefited from the installation of a StorTera hybrid energy storage system alongside a micro-hydro turbine, solar PV array and back-up diesel generator.
