Wittenberg/Astana, 28 August 2017 – The storage system manufacturer TESVOLT has provided a lithium-ion storage system for the first world’s fair in Central Asia. The storage system with an output of 198 kW is being used to increase self-consumption of the power generated by solar installation on the roof of the exposition’s central pavilion. In addition, it provides the exposition with emergency back-up power. The TESVOLT storage system has been operating in the Kazakh capital since June 10 and will remain there after the exhibition.
Supplying remote areas with renewable energy
Under the motto “Future Energy: Action for Global Sustainability”, Expo 2017 focuses both on ensuring that people in developing countries have access to a reliable energy supply from renewable sources and on the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy.
“Securing the energy supply in developing countries is a very important topic for us here at TESVOLT. Particularly in regions that lack a well-developed power grid, storage systems can be used to maintain the energy supply, thereby improving quality of life and local economic opportunities”, explained Daniel Hannemann, Managing Director of TESVOLT.
International storage projects
In 2016, the Wittenberg company installed the world’s largest off-grid storage system in Rwanda. The system provides the power to supply 2000 people with water. As part of a collaboration with the start-up Africa GreenTec in rural West Africa, TESVOLT uses storage containers to ensure that 250,000 people have reliable access to inexpensive solar energy.
TESVOLT specializes in commercial battery-storage systems. The innovative company produces various sizes of lithium storage systems with capacities of 10 to 120 kWh. Depending on the desired storage system size, they can be flexibly combined—for example to create a large-scale storage system with a capacity of 1 MWh, which TESVOLT supplies as a ready-to-use container. All storage systems are available with different charging speeds, with customers being also able to subsequently expand the system at any time. Thanks to this modular system concept, TESVOLT storage systems work with any application.
TESVOLT was awarded the Hugo Junkers Prize by the German Federal State of Saxony-Anhalt for its battery management system. From 1 August 2017, TESVOLT will also be represented by a new sales office in Friedrichstraße 191 in Berlin, Germany.
Tesvolt specializes in commercial and industrial battery storage systems. The innovative company from Wittenberg produces lithium storage systems with prismatic battery cells from Samsung SDI, based on nickel manganese cobalt oxide. Tesvolt storage systems are always a good match, for high or low voltage, on- or off-grid. They can be used with any regenerative energy source or with combined heat and power units or fuel cells.
Tesvolt produces its commercial storage system solutions in series in Wittenberg, Germany, at Europe’s first gigafactory for battery storage systems, and delivers them all over the world. The company has already completed over 1,200 storage projects worldwide.
Tesvolt has won accolades including the German Entrepreneur Award for Rising Stars. The company also received The smarter E Award in the Outstanding Projects category as well as the international Alliance for Rural Electrification (ARE) Award for a project supplying off-grid energy to an avocado farm in southwest Australia.
