Panasonic's Power Supply Container: A solar power plant in a box | GizMag.com | Sciences & Technology | Scoop.it

In an effort to bring reliable electricity supplies to emerging regions and remote island communities, Panasonic has developed an expandable, portable, self-contained photovoltaic system. The "Power Supply Container" comes equipped with 12 of Panasonic's HIT240 solar modules on the roof and generates approximately 3 kW of electricity, with 24 lead-acid batteries capable of storing 17.2 kWh of energy used to store excess electricity.

 

In the container, Panasonic’s new Power Supply Control Unit (PSCU) monitors and manages the remaining electricity in the system’s lead-acid batteries and is also responsible for controlling supply and demand. Panasonic says this reduces deterioration of the batteries, thereby extending their lifespan while reducing maintenance and replacement costs. The system and its associated energy capabilities can also be expanded by incorporating additional containers into a network arrangement.

Panasonic has also found ways how to utilize shipping containers. If you have an idea but lack containers, you can purchase them at SMC. Check our container page for details http://goo.gl/Cd91w6
