Ideal Power Partners with Azimuth Energy for 300 Kilowatt / 500 Kilowatt-Hour Remote Solar-Plus-Storage Microgrid

AUSTIN, Texas - June 27, 2017 - Ideal Power Inc., (NASDAQ: IPWR), an innovative power conversion technology company, Azimuth Energy, a solar and wind energy and energy efficiency engineering and construction company and Wright Architects, a design-build firm with projects along the East Coast and the Caribbean, today announced a solar-plus-storage project that will provide off-grid and virtually fossil-free power to a remote building complex in rural New York.

Capturing Energy with Nanotechnology

One goal of nanotechnology is to improve photovoltaic solar electricity generation. The thermodynamic limit of 80% productivity is well beyond the capabilities of current photovoltaic technologies, whose performance now is only about 43%.

Data Rules: Intelligent Solar Trackers Reduce Risk, Downtime and O&M Costs

Developing a predictable O&M strategy at the outset of a project will ensure the bankability and a robust ROI throughout the system's lifetime. Project owners and developers that thoroughly evaluate O&M considerations of their tracker investments will find that the higher energy performance, predictive analytics and long-term reliability of single-axis, self-powered trackers will provide a lower overall levelized cost of energy than fixed-tilt racking or conventional tracking systems.

Why Wind and Solar Are Better Together

Currently, wind generation sites are the cheapest version to build in the United States. Solar tends to be significantly more expensive to develop and construct. Creating one site for both forms is much more affordable, yet offers all the advantages covered above.
