Transcription

1 case study Arcola Theatre small business Arcola Theatre was an early customer of the maslow energy storage system, and has 4 x 1kWh systems installed (now operating for 4 years) and 4 x 2kWh units. Each unit has a 200W solar PV panel directly charging the batteries, which then power DC lights and computers throughout the office and theatre spaces. 13kWh STORAGE DEPLOYED We use Energy Storage to turn Sun light into Stage Light. Ben Todd Client

2 the technology Storage Maslow is a distributed 2kWh battery storage system that provides smart power to homes, offices and flats and supports a DC Microgrid to avoid AC-DC conversions. It also increases the efficiency of LED lighting and consumer devices. Maslow can store energy on smart tariffs at night or when local solar is in surplus, then export energy from its battery to reduce peak grid demand or avoid peak pricing. Moixa has worked with Kiwi Power and 1248 to provide Demand Side Management capability. A cluster of maslow units can be used as one larger storage resource, like a virtual power plant. DC LED Lighting Moixa selected pendant and spot lights from Photonstar lighting for this project. These are 80% more efficient than incandescent units, and have a lifetime in excess of 15 years. 83 LED FITTINGS DEPLOYED AC solar monitoring. 11,000 SQFT LIGHTING One of the 2kWh Maslow systems installed is used to increase the amount of AC solar power that can be used by the theatre. Moixa monitored the various AC circuits to determine which were poorly matched to linked PV production (low usage during the day / high usage in the evening) Power stored from the solar panels during the days now used to help power these areas of the theatre in the evening.

3 9 the installation. MASLOWS DEPLOYED Ten 200W solar panels were installed to directly charge the eight Maslows powering DC microgrids (running lights and laptop charge points throughout the theatre). 28 DC SOCKETS DEPLOYED For the office spaces Moixa (in collaboration with Unto this Last furniture designers) crafted DC desks which allow users to charge their laptops directly from the solar panels on the roof via Moixa s Maslow and DC sockets. These Maslow powered desks ensure the office can keep working right through a power cut. We love our DC desks, they look great and work really well. Feimatta Conteh Client

4 Arcola Theatre has a sister company, Arcola Energy, that specialises in developing fuel cell technologies. Arcola Energy is supporting Arcola Theatre in its goal to become the first carbon-neutral theatre in the world. developments. Moixa have worked with Arcola Energy on a number of Research and Development projects, building a module that allows the Maslow units to charge from energy produced by a fuel cell. Other activities have included refitting and integrating end-of-life Electric Vehicle batteries into the DC network, and mapping the energy consumption across the site onto a 3D model of the complex.

5 savings and benefits. Energy savings (per year) from DC 2.5 MWh. Energy stored directly from solar panels and delivered to the theatre s DC microgrids. Energy savings (per year) from AC shift 560 kwh. Estimated extra AC PV energy utilisation through time shifting demand. Carbon savings (per year) 1.2 t. Based on the average carbon content of UK electricity published by DECC of 500g/kWh Resilience A further benefit of the maslow system is that if a grid power outage occurs, lighting continues to operate meaning office workers are not affected. The maslow can provide power for several hours; through most typical power outages. Load reduction 87 % saving 30,000 Wh TOTAL DAILY ENERGY AC-INSTALL (ESTIMATED) Cost savings (total per year) 1,700 1,270 Estimated saving compared to a equivalent installation of AC fittings. Assuming 14 pence per kwh, based on comparison to 60W AC lighting fittings, 3000kWh storage saved form PV & DC over AC efficiency adjustment the annual bill is reduced by 1,700 Peak Lopping 4,000 Wh TOTAL DAILY ENERGY DC-INSTALL (MEASURED) The UK faces a significant peak capacity crunch. The residential sector represents the majority of UK energy demand in peak hours so maslow combined with LED lighting ensures peak reduction. The system dashboard is fantastic, its wonderful to be able to keep a close watch on how much energy the office is using in real time. future actions. Feimatta Conteh Client The installation of maslow with LEDs has helped trigger a number of other positive actions: Energy monitoring has prompted a number of energy saving initiatives at the theatre and highlighted areas that can be improved. Further integration of more fuel cell capacity is being explored. Visibility of Maslow systems in the theatre has raised awareness of energy efficiency and the potential of Maslow energy storage in the local community.

6 how it works Direct Current (DC) Alternating Current (AC) Solar PV panels converts light to DC electricity Inverter converts incoming DC into AC Fuse box Maslow battery stores excess solar PV energy and powers appliances when you need it LED lighting powered by DC Electronic devices and appliances powered by DC current through USB sockets Connection to mains. Surplus solar PV energy exported to grid You can view your energy use and generation in real time, anywhere For more information please contact Moixa: Patented and patents pending including GB , GB , US884971, US Maslow, DC Ready, Moixa are registered trademarks of Moixa Energy Holdings Ltd..
