International Battery Partners with HNU Energy for Solar and Energy Storage Project in Hawai

International Battery announced that the company has teamed up with HNU Energy to take part in a solar electricity generation and energy storage project in Maui, Hawaii. The objective of the partnership is to evaluate the effectiveness of utilizing advanced battery technology for storing solar energy. The project was commissioned recently.

The solar energy system comprises sixty 224-watt PV panels, a bi-directional 3-phase inverter system and an advanced charge controller network supplied by HNU Energy, the system integrator. A 48V, 16.4kWh energy storage system that is based on lithium-ion technology along with controls and battery management was supplied by International Battery to store the energy produced from the solar PV panels.

The energy storage system is incorporated into a standard Electronics Industry Alliance type 19” portable rack mount chassis and enclosure. Battery management system supplied by International Battery monitors and controls the 32 160Ah lithium iron phosphate cells. The most important aspect for overall performance of the storage systems is to monitor and keep individual battery cells in good condition.
