LG Electronics has announced that it will supply Commercial Energy Storage System (ESS) to Hawaii.
The Korea-US consortium, which includes LG Electronics, recently signed a supply contract for the ‘MicroGrid’ construction project promoted by the Hawaii state government. A microgrid is an environmentally friendly power system that uses renewable energy sources such as solar or wind power.
In addition to LG Electronics, the Korea-US consortium includes the Korea Institute of Energy Technology Evaluation (KETEP), Incord Technologies, an artificial intelligence solution for energy technology, the University of Hawaii, Seoul National University and the Guangzhou Institute. And technology.
From June this year, LG Electronics plans to supply the energy storage system used by the Hawaii State-affiliated research firm, the Natural Energy Laboratory of the Hawaii Authority (NELHA). The LG Electronics Energy Storage System supplies power to the agricultural seawater supply system operated by the Research Institute.
The Hawaii state government is expanding its green energy policy and aims to supply electricity from 100% renewable energy sources by 2045.
LG Electronics ESS 250 kW Class Power Conversion System (PCS), Power Management System (PMS), 756 kW Class battery, air conditioner, fire extinguisher and switchboard power system for storing and generating energy generated in the battery. The light is packed, so it is easy to install. The company claims that this is a battery capable of fully charging 10 electric vehicles with a driving range of 400 km at a time.
LG Electronics said it was focusing on differentiated technology in PCS. PCS is not only durable enough to withstand -30 degrees (℃) to +50 degrees, it has also been described as having a high installation utility because many PCSs can be connected in parallel. In addition, LG Electronics’s first uninterrupted power supply function (seamless backup functionally), which was first introduced to the PCS, provides power quickly and smoothly within 20 m (milliseconds, thousandths of a second) even in the event of a power outage.
The company says it can quickly respond to the ESS that needs to be installed this time around in the event of unusual issues through 24-hour monitoring. Users can remotely control the air conditioning system along with the PCS and batteries. firstname.lastname@example.org
