It is reported that the California Energy Commission's research program will invest in two stages, the program will energy storage systems and concentrating photovoltaic technologies. Maxwell Technologies has been awarded a $ 1.39 million contract to be a super-capacitor energy storage system was designed and integrated into the Soitec's Concentrix CPV systems financing. Last summer, French Soitec get Sunpath awarded $ 25 million, through the U.S. Department of Energy's SunShot program support facility in
The integrated system will also use other technological advances, including forecasts and predictions of dc to ac converter energy control, the integrated super capacitor energy storage to maximize the benefits. The project will begin in June 2013 and continued until November 2015. The integrated system performance based on an independent assessment by DNVKEMA signed subcontracts with Maxwell proceed.
Soitec's new fifth generation Concentrix concentrator photovoltaic system components and module efficiency of 30% (or two to three times the efficiency of conventional PV technology) combined. Supercapacitor energy storage device, you can quick charge from any electrical energy and stored according to demand for the release of energy. Combined with photovoltaic systems, they will act as a backup energy storage device, easing the variability of solar power.
Utility-scale commercial concentrator photovoltaic systems designed to reduce the output of curing the demand on the grid, is committed to maintaining the equipment's electrical output. In addition to reducing the variability of photovoltaic inverter power plants, integrated super capacitor concentrating photovoltaic system by reducing public investment in generation capacity to meet peak power transient needs, so that utility customers benefit.
Different battery, battery production and energy storage through a chemical reaction, Maxwell's ultracapacitor products utilize electric energy storage. The electrostatic energy storage mechanism enables instant supercapacitor charging and discharging in a wide temperature range (-40 to +
65 C) can
take advantage of the inner and reliable operation up to one million or more
