British and Indian researchers are working together to combine solar power with bio-mass and hydrogen to create a Bio-CPV uninterruptible power supply.

British and Indian researchers are working together, in the hope that a low-cost combination of solar power with bio-mass and hydrogen will create a Bio-CPV uninterruptible power supply.

The project is expected to generate power tt about 45 households in a remote village in West Bengal by 2016. It has been jointly funded by Research Councils UK and India’s department of science and technology.

"Descentralised hybrid power plants with different renewable technologies can be the most efficient, cheap and sustainable options for rural electrification,” said UK project leader Professor Tapas Mallick in the research paper related to the project.

The biomass and hydrogen will be produced locally.

The research, which began in 2012, is being conducted by scientists from British universities in Sheffield, Exeter and Nottingham, and the Indian institutions Visva-Bharati, IIT Madras and IIT Bombay.

Belectric storage system approved for frequency response.
Share page with AddThis

Solar power company Belectric’s lead-acid battery storage system has been prequalified to provide 1.3MW of frequency control for Germany’s high voltage grid.

The €560,000 ($609,000) 948kWh Energy Buffer Unit (EBU) was initially installed to provide backup at the 67.8 MW Alt Daber solar project in Brandenburg, Germany.

The system will now provide frequency response to the German transmission network operator (TNO) 50Hertz, and will assist in frequency across the country’s high voltage grid from the Alt Daber plant.

The EBU includes power inverter and a medium voltage transformer. Depending on configuration, it has the ability to deliver between 800 and 1400kW of power storage.

It can also be prequalified for frequency response on the German transmission network at up to 650 kW, taking account of the reserve capacity required by German TNOs.
