Energy Storage
Solutions

Energy Air Storage are co-developing together with Air Power Technologies Group Ltd, an air energy storage solution, based on the result of a long-term project to develop an air engine, initially for the automotive market, by Air Power.  

Installations that suit every community

As part of the power producing concept of Island Power Solutions, the concept of Solar Parking will be utilised. Given the access and availability to parking spaces and the multiple value and function of the concept, it is a good tool to reinforce the grid with local, high precision energy production.

Parking spaces, which are usually considered a “dead space” can now be used to produce green energy, while also protecting the cars and customers from heat, rain, snow and provides additional lighting options for safety. Solar Parking has developed a concept for cost efficient, sustainable, flexible and competitive solar carport installations for parking lots, that is also ideal for connecting charging stations for electric vehicles.

Developed to make a difference

The original development was made by Air Power together with the University of Parma in Italy and IFP Energies Nouvelles in France. The different parts of the technology are well proven and is based on a patented solution.

The system has decreased the losses between produced energy and consumed energy, input respective to output, to a feasible commercial level, which has historically been a problem with this type of technology. The engine runs on compressed air which can be produced by multiple sources. Energy Air Solution are together with Air Power developing the application for large scale use for energy storage and in combination with green energy like solar energy as well as wind.

The implementation is both for developed and undeveloped markets and currently projects is being done in Sweden, along with, for example Energimyndigheten (Swedish government), and in France where a process with EGIS is in progress.

With the renewable energy world for solar increasing fast all over the world, cost and efficiency is getting more and more competitive, but the use of energy storage solutions must also be developed.

Meet the efficiency

The energy production from solar has an obvious disadvantage with the limitation of production during night-time. Given that, to avoid being dependent on grid supply or non-renewable energy, it is necessary to develop new and more efficient energy storage systems to supply the energy requirements of islands globally with renewable energy resources.

Energy storage is a central component of energy systems, and also helps during emergencies like power outages from storms or failures resulting from an overused electrical grid. The reason why outages occur are several, and the main advantages of energy storage is that they enable off-grid renewable energy systems to be created day-and-night.

The ability to balance power supply and demand instantly make power networks more resilient and efficient. Today this is mainly done by using batteries, or on a larger scale, through pump-hydro facilities. The battery solutions work well on smaller installations like residential, where larger quantities of backup power are not necessary. For any installations where a long-time storage capacity of power is needed, the Air Storage system is a very competitive and environmentally friendly alternative that can replace both battery and diesel storage.

Reliable Technology

The Solar Parking roof covering integrates the PV solar panels creating maximum utilisation of the area and achieving superior system efficiencies by maximising electricity output per unit area. The concept consists of a strong, self-supporting structure which can span long distances which minimizes the total number of pillars needed.

This creates an open, unique and attractive covering for parking spaces without the need for bulky and expensive support structures. For the customer it means an attractive yield out of every square meter of available surface plus providing complete protection of the parking area.
