Conergy is a world leader in solar energy generation and continues to innovate with the introduction to Australia and the Asia Pacific its Conergy Hybrid Energy Storage System (CHESS). The CHESS technology is purpose-built to run on either off-grid, fringe-of-grid or on-grid power system set-ups.
The system provides demandable renewable power supply 24hrs/7days a week and is able to keep providing power when the sun isn’t shining. For off-grid and fringe-of-grid sites, it will improve power quality and heavily reduce reliance on diesel generators or completely replace them. For on-grid sites, it can provide voltage and frequency control, short-circuit power supply and enable solar to integrate seamlessly into the grid network.
CHESS is expandable and is designed and housed in easily transportable shipping containers with scalable power output in 100kW increments continuing upward depending on site and project requirements.
The capacity of CHESS system can be extended by connecting containers in parallel on the AC side with additional battery containers available to extend the storage capacity as demand grows.
The Conergy system can be operated as a hybrid solar/diesel grid solution and manages smooth switchover between solar/diesel/battery or as a stand-alone islanding application.
The CHESS technology is designed to work with micro-grids for facilities such as remote mining, energy, oil, gas, infrastructure and construction sites as well as isolated marine facilities, universities, hotels, resorts and companies operating in environmentally sensitive areas where fossil fuel pollution is an issue.
The first development stage of a project is the Conergy pre-feasibility study, using available data from load, renewable and component resources.
Based on financial parameters, Conergy engineers design the optimal energy system and present the feasibility study. The results include diesel savings, the expected renewable energy share, CO2 savings, investment value of the system, return on investment and the levelised cost of electricity.
