Ban Pha Dan

Australia-based Redflow has provided a hybrid battery system coupled with solar energy generation to create a microgrid that will provide a reliable power supply in a remote village in Thailand.

The energy storage system is made up of 10 Redflow ZBM2 zinc-bromine flow batteries— which provide 10kWh apiece— and three lithium batteries. The ZBM2 batteries will provide power to the Ban Pha Dan community school, town hall, and temple, while the lithium batteries will supply energy for individual homes.

Ban Pha Dan is in Lamphun province and is surrounded by a wildlife reserve where power pylons are not permitted, meaning that the village has lacked access to electricity in the past.

Palau, Micronesia

The government of the Pacific Ocean island nation of Palau has signed an agreement to install a battery system at the heart of a solar and storage microgrid.

The agreement with Engie Electro Power Systems (Engie EPS) will see the creation of the 100-megawatt ‘Armonia’ microgrid— comprising 45 megawatt-hours of battery storage and a 35MW solar photovoltaic project to be integrated with existing diesel generating facilities.

Engie EPS general manager and CEO, Carlalberto Guglielminotti, claimed the microgrid “would not be just one of the largest storage-enabled solar projects in world, but a pioneering showcase for the whole global energy sector”.

Alcatraz Island

Princeton Power Systems has celebrated the two-year operation of its commercial scale microgrid system on Alcatraz Island in the San Francisco Bay, US.

The New Jersey energy storage company installed 400kW of solar panels on the roof of the former San Francisco prison on the island and integrated the PV system with a 400kW lead-acid battery bank, two diesel generators, controllers and inverters. The system meets 60% of the island’s electricity demand.
