MHI delivers large-capacity energy storage system  

By Gerald Ondrey |

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. (MHI; Tokyo, Japan; www.mhi.co.jp) has delivered a large-capacity energy-storage system employing lithium-ion rechargeable batteries to the Shimizu Institute of Technology in Tokyo. The institute, a technology arm of Shimizu Corp., a major Japanese construction firm, is presently conducting advanced studies, including verification testing, into various technological areas, including microgrids, which are a localized power management system, and smart BEMS (building and energy management system). The energy storage system, which is capable of 100-kW output and storage of 60 kWh, is one of today’s largest indoor lithium-ion battery-based systems in Japan. Going forward MHI and Shimizu will jointly conduct tests using the energy storage system and verification of the microgrid system, in a quest to respond to increasing social needs for stationary energy storage systems. The microgrid installed at the Shimizu Institute of Technology has a total output of 600 kW. It consists of multiple power sources, including a photovoltaic generation system, and an energy storage system, all configured for integrated control. The lithium-ion rechargeable battery energy storage system installed in the microgrid…
