  • Vision Mechatronics has delivered India's initial Hybrid Energy Storage System.
  • The system is made up of old lithium batteries and new Tubular Gel Batteries.
  • It can enable for approximately 18 hours to the grid.

Indian maker of sophisticated Li-ion batteries, Vision Mechatronics has today announced developing a Megawatt-scale Hybrid Energy Storage Project in Haryana.

The hybrid project has a mix of 'World's Smartest Lithium Batteries' (as per the company's insurance claims) along with Tubular Gel Batteries (lead-acid variant) to accomplish financial long period of time backup.

Vision Mechatronics, has provided a ZeroBlackout Solution to Brahmakumaris at Om Shanti Retreat Centre. The Retreat Centre has gone with a Solar-based special mix of MW-scale hybrid battery storage system, i.e., Lithium-Lead hybrid which has actually used the existing old batteries with the fresh new lithium batteries to have a long duration backup to make certain that there is a smooth power transition when the grid fails.

Speaking on their advancement, Taking care of Director of Vision Mechatronics, Dr. Rashi Gupta (who is lovingly called 'Batterywali of India') stated, "Making use of a hybrid battery energy storage system has made sure that there is optimum usage of existing sources at the time of addition of new ones to achieve a price of energy at Grid Parity."

"Opting for a hybrid energy storage version can help industrial entities decrease their preliminary CAPEX financial investment by 35 to 40% for a long-duration energy storage project. With the recent launch of the ACC battery plan, India provides a fantastic chance for energy storage and e-mobility market," she included.

Commonly weaker grid in remote areas can not take care of the tons connected to them and also obtains overloaded. Incorporating solar with energy storage creates a microgrid that supports the traditional grid and can supply tons also in absence of the power grid. Lithium-based energy storage is typically commercially viable only approximately 4 hrs, so it was important to have a readily sensible service for 8 to 18 hours and also maybe accomplished by Hybrid Energy Storage, according to the company.

As per the company's claims, this microgrid properly performs numerous functions including, Backup, Frequency Regulation, Grid Feed, Voltage Regulation, Black Begin, Smooth Power Transition, as well as Diesel Replacement. The system additionally has precautionary as well as predictive tracking to detect faults ahead of time to make certain smooth as well as dependable performance.

"This unique project will add a great deal of value to the campus and also allow us to use wide as well as undisturbed services to the society. Sun is also the source of unlimited light and also energy for mankind and this planet. Thus, this project has enlightened brand-new hopes in all of us that we can live in harmony and also in harmony with nature sustainably," shared Sister BK Asha, Director of the Om Shanti Retreat Centre.

Earlier likewise Brahmakumaris have selected renewable energy in a big way, with over 2 MW of solar plants set up at their facility in Mount Abu, Rajasthan.
