URL More about Niijima Island Microgrid - Takaoka Toko Ltd
Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) will conduct a microgrid demonstration project on a remote Japanese island, incorporating solar, storage, wind and diesel. Saft has been awarded its first energy storage system contract in Japan to supply a containerized 520 kWh/1 MW lithium-ion battery system for the Niijima Island Microgrid project conducted by Takaoka Toko Co., Ltd. – a subsidiary of Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO). The demonstration project will comprise diesel generators, solar panels and wind power installations working in various combinations to optimize the usage of renewable energy resource. The battery will operate in combination with Takaoka-Toko’s intelligent control system that enables large amounts of wind and other renewable energy based power to be integrated into diesel powered grids, ensuring system stability and smooth control of the gensets. The program will investigate the use of energy storage for various applications in the microgrid setting.
