Cost, complexity and carbon footprint. Earlier this month, Switzerland-headquartered Leclanché launched its new, modular energy storage system solution aimed at reducing all three of these challenging points for the industry. VP for system engineering Daniel Fohr and EMEA region sales and business development manager Cyril Carpentier speak about how and why Leclanché believe LeBlock solves some of the major concerns energy storage developers face.
Aimed at reducing the cost, complexity and environmental footprint of stationary energy storage system (ESS) installations, Leclanché has launched a modular battery storage solution based on easily transportable, plug and play racks that can be put together onsite.
Leclanché and VRB Energy, two providers in very different areas of energy storage, have struck up joint ventures (JVs) intended to assist them in scaling up and hitting new markets, while Ice Energy has netted fresh funding.
A subsidiary of Enel is jointly developing a large-scale lithium-ion battery system project with wind power developer ENERTRAG, in what will be the multinational utility’s first energy storage project in Germany.
A “hybrid power plant”, controlling the grid for an entire island and its inhabitants, has been created with the addition of a management and control platform from energy storage system integrator Greensmith.
