Panasonic Corporation today announced it has developed the “Power Supply Container”, a stand-alone photovoltaic power package, for areas without electricity.
The Power Supply Container contains solar modules*1 and lead-acid batteries*2, as well as the newly developed Power Supply Control Unit that acts as the energy management system.
In addition, the Project to Improve Elementary Education and Alleviate Poverty by Providing Electricity to Karimunjawa Island, Jepara District, Central Jawa Province, for which the Power Supply Container will act as a power source, has been selected by the Embassy of Japan in Indonesia as a joint public/private sector project utilizing Grant Assistance for Grass-roots Human Security Projects*3, with a signing ceremony held in Jakarta, Indonesia on March 24. This project supplies a power system to the National Elementary School Karimunjawa 01 under the educational environment improvement policy for isolated islands.
Indonesia consists of roughly 13,000 islands, and so there is a lack of access to electricity particularly among the minor islands where development of power generation facilities and distribution networks is difficult. In Karimunjawa, electricity is available at night from diesel generators, but in the daytime there is no electricity, which results in an insufficient educational environment.
To solve this problem, Panasonic will provide a Power Supply Container to the National Elementary School Karimunjawa 01, in order to improve the facilities and educational environment through providing power for the school’s electrical equipment, such as lights and fans, as well as educational tools such as computers, projectors and televisions. Panasonic will introduce the Power Supply Container with an aim of starting operations in July 2014.
The Power Supply Container is equipped with twelve Panasonic HIT® 240 solar modules which have a high conversion efficiency and can generate approximately 3 kW of electricity. It is also equipped with 24 lead-acid storage batteries (17.2 kWh as total) which can supply stored power. This project will supply power to the electrical equipment in the school and classrooms during school time, while the excess energy generated out of school hours will be supplied to the local community, helping to stabilize the local power supply.
Panasonic will continue to develop its Power Supply Container as a solution for areas without electricity or places facing frequent power blackouts in Indonesia and other Asian countries and emerging nations, with the aim of realizing a more enriched and comfortable lifestyle in more and more places around the world.
*1 Panasonic monocrystalline hybrid solar cell modules “HIT”
*2 Panasonic deep cycle valve-regulated lead-acid batteries
*3 Joint public/private sector projects using Grant Assistance for Grass-roots Human Security Projects: the provision of financial assistance in the form of ODA to relatively small-scale projects run locally by local public bodies, educational/medical institutions, NGOs and so on in developing nations. Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan provides support for corporate social responsibility of Japanese corporations to develop regional economies and socioeconomic infrastructure in countries undertaking such projects, particularly for cases run jointly by the public and private sectors.
