The Magellan Residential Energy Storage System – named the RES1 is an Australian made and designed system which stores solar power during the day, and makes it available for use when there is no sun, for example at night.
Managing Director of Magellan Masoud Abshar says the certification is a triumph for the Australian renewable energy industry, the economy, and Australian know-how.
“For too long the Australian renewable energy industry has settled for the role of follower. With the calibre of design and engineering knowledge in our economy, and the research capabilities in our universities Magellan intends to change this trend and become an international leader in this field”.
On receiving the certification Magellan is already in discussions regarding supplying the technology to areas of immediate need such as remote Aboriginal communities, who’s high running cost has been the subject of recent debate.
Magellan is also engaging with some of Australia’s most respected home builders to add energy storage to their new homes range, which will reduce electricity costs in new homes.
Masoud said while he was disappointed with the time taken to issue certification, he is happy that it has now been granted, which now means it can be installed anywhere in Australia.
The RES1 is for use in homes or small businesses. It can be installed in a garage, or under the eaves by the side of the house, and is capable of storing low cost grid power at night for use at peak demand time.
It consists of a 5kVA state of the art bidirectional inverter, and 9.2kWh of safe and reliable Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries. The batteries are similar to those used in electric vehicles, and give excellent cycle life and reliability.
The Residential Energy Storage RES1 saves on electricity bills, and puts the control of energy costs firmly back into consumer hands and significantly cuts electricity bills, produces income and reduces carbon emissions.
The RES1 is also available 'Reposit Ready' meaning it is comes fitted with Reposit Power's control system. Reposit Power's Grid Credits technology enables the customer to store, shift and trade their energy onto the grid and earn money for it, which substantially improves the energy storage payback to consumers. More information can be found on Reposit's website www.repositpower.com
and customers can order 'Reposit Ready' units from their installer.
Magellan Power has been developing Energy Storage equipment for the past 6 years, and also has commercial scale and utility scale systems available, seen at http://magellanpower.com.au/Products/Renewable-Energy-and-Energy-Storage-Systems
