Delta Electronics Introduces Innovative Battery Energy Storage Solution

Delta designed this BESS system for smart grid applications

VERSAILLES, France--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.


"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 solution, Delta contributes to smarter and greener energy management"

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 solution, 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.

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

TRA SNOW AND SUN - SOLAR TILE MOUNT

You haven't installed a tile mount that is easier to install than the Solar Tile Mount manufactured by TRA Snow and Sun. Solar Tile Mount is used on all tile roof profiles: flat, mid, and high. It is made in the USA of aluminum alloy for strength and excellent corrosion resistance. Solar Tile Mount is built to allow more ease in installation with more rise from the tile surface to the rail for better air flow below panels. The adjustable base is longer than most allowing attachment 6" to the left or right to have the bracket in the base of the pan of the tile and still fasten to the rafter. Solar Tile Mount is adjustable for counter batten systems from ¾" to 3". The horizontal rail is directly above base fasteners giving greater uplift resistance than any other system. For superior waterproofing apply TRA Snow and Sun's butyl backed VersaFlash aluminum flashing. No tile flashing is needed on top of the tile for greater labor and material cost savings.
