The inherently intermittent nature of renewable energy sources requires reliable, efficient energy storage systems to ensure continuity of customer supply. In many cases, renewable energy systems are installed in remote areas, accessible only in good weather conditions, so ease of transportation and low maintenance is a key consideration.
Alcad nickel-cadmium battery solutions provide highly reliable energy storage for solar PV and wind turbines in stand-alone hybrid power and grid connected installations. They provide time-shifting power from peak generation to peak demand and act as a bridge while the network switches between generation modes.
Alcad Solar robust Ni-Cd battery range is designed to operate reliably in tough outdoor conditions and extreme temperatures ranging from -30°C to +50°C.
Our renewable nickel-cadmium battery systems require minimal maintenance, can withstand daily shallow cycles and seasonal deep cycles. This achieves a low life-cycle cost and optimized TCO (Total Cost of Ownership).
