Energy storage provider Qinous to develop hybrid microgrids in Indonesia

It will be commissioned in 2Q17.

Misool Eco Resort, a resort and conservation centre located in remote southern Raja Ampat, Indonesia, has awarded an implementation project contract to Singapore-based renewable energy microgrid service provider, Canopy Power Pte Ltd, and Berlin-based smart energy storage provider, QINOUS. 

This implementation will reduce annual diesel consumption by 55 percent by hybridizing the existing diesel microgrid with solar photovoltaic (PV) and Li-ion batteries. Once commissioned in Q2 2017, this will be one of the largest hybrid microgrids in Raja Ampat area.

The microgrid is designed by Canopy Power Pte Ltd. Canopy Power will be responsible for constructing and commissioning the system. Canopy Power will also provide a remote monitoring support to Misool Eco Resort. The battery solution including the Site Controller and Microgrid Energy Management System with embedded remote monitoring system for this off grid energy system will come from QINOUS.

The resort's electrical supply will be based on a 125 kW array of solar PV panels and diesel generators. A Lithium-ion energy storage system is used to store excess solar power for night-time use or in periods of low sunshine. The energy storage system is able to provide significant reductions in fuel consumption as it allows the diesel generators to be completely disabled for extended periods of time.
