2/25/2015 IRELAND’S FIRST COMBINED ULTRACAPACITOR & BATTERY ENERGY STORAGE FACILITY

Ireland intends to achieve 40% renewable energy by 2020. This is an ambitious goal, considering most of this electricity comes from large scale wind farms. “The challenge is that it is an island grid, with only limited connection to the UK,” said Klaus Harder, Business Development Manager at FREQCON GmbH. Some winter nights the Irish grid will have to take 75% of its electricity from renewable sources. This calls for additional services and FREQCON deployed Ireland’s first ­combined ultracapacitor & battery energy storage facility for the Tallaght Smart Grid Testbed in South Dublin County.

2/24/2015 Maxwell Technologies Ultracapacitors Utilized in Ireland

Maxwell Technologies reported that Freqcon GmbH, a German developer and distributor of renewable energy systems, has deployed an energy storage system for the Tallaght Smart Grid Testbed in Ireland that uses Maxwell ultracapacitors and lithium-ion batteries to support grid stability in both residential and industrial settings.

2/20/2015 Ultra-Capacitors Support Irish Smart Grid Test Bed

Freqcon has installed an energy storage system for Ireland’s Tallaght smart grid test bed. The solution is integrated with Maxwell’s ultra-capacitors and lithium-ion batteries that are designed to support grid stability in residential and industrial settings. The test-bed also features Freqcon’s microgrid stabilizer to enable voltage and frequency stabilization.

2/19/2015 Maxwell Technologies showcases truck engine start module at TMC

As electrical loads on commercial vehicles increase, so too does demand on truck batteries. The issue is further complicated by the fact that lithium ion and deep cycle batteries that excel at providing long-term, in-cab power, but are not as efficient at providing sustained bursts of cranking amps when it’s time to start the vehicle after a long night off-duty. At the same time, starting batteries do a poor job of meeting long-term power requirements demanded by resting drivers.

2/19/2015 Maxwell Technologies ultracapacitors deployed in Ireland Microgrid energy storage system

As Ireland works toward its goal of 40 percent renewable energy generation by 2020, the Tallaght Smart Grid Testbed, run by the South Dublin County Council and the Micro Electricity Generation Association (MEGA), will demonstrate how energy storage can minimize electricity distribution issues and grid instability. With multiple sources of energy generation, the grid network in Ireland must deal with voltage and frequency issues before distributing the electricity to end users.

2/19/2015 Ultracaps Store Energy in Smart Grid Testbed

“Smart grid projects are a priority in Ireland, and, depending on the local set-up, the grid challenges can vary greatly,” said Dudley Stewart, secretary general of MEGA. “Freqcon’s Microgrid Stabilizer can be customized for individual projects, and the combination of batteries and Maxwell ultracapacitors is a promising solution. We are looking forward to seeing more of these systems deployed in the field in the near future.”
