PowerTech Systems joins Netfficient consortium


July, 2015


PowerTech Systems is proud to announce its active participation in Netfficient project within H2020 program. It was established and funded by the European Community.

Netfficient consortium

The project “Energy and economic efficiency for today’s smart communities through integrated multi storage technologies” has been favorably evaluated. the European Commission ranked it #1 out of 58 with an excellent score both for scientific and socio-economic impacts. The project is a Horizon 2020 innovation action involving 13 European partners. This, among enterprises and research centers, led by Ayesa Advanced Technologies (Spain).

Lithium-Ion energy storage systems design

As part of this participation, PowerTech Systems will design local, medium and large scale Lithium-Ion energy storage systems. As, energy storage is the backbone of Netfficient project, several scenarios will be realized:

  • Medium voltage Lithium-Ion battery for Peak Shaving management
  • Lithium-Ion energy storage for 40 self sufficient homes
  • Energy storage for large scale building
  • Energy storage for street lighting
  • Advanced system management and communication with smart-grid core system

In total, PowerTech Systems will be responsible for deploying Lithium ion battery systems. Indeed it represents approximately two MegaWatt hour on the German island of Borkum.
