CellCube FB 200-800: New installation enables energy independence for low energy buildings in Písek, Czech Republic
Another success for GILDEMEISTER energy storage GmbH: A CellCube FB 200-800 energy storage system was installed and taken into operation in Písek, Czech Republic in March 2016. The system had previously been tested in a Factory Accenptance Test (FAT) by project developers at the CellCube factory in Wiener Neudorf, Austria. The CellCube FB 200-800 storage system passed all inspections without objection.
The system plays a key role in the Center of Low Energy Buildings (CLB) in Písek. It stores excessive energy from photovoltaic, wind and gas power plants and supplies to the loads during times in which there is not enough energy production. Key feature is the superb ability to store high amounts of energy making use of its high-performance Vanadium Vanadium is a chemical element with the symbol V and atomic number 23. This steel-grey, bluish shimmering transition metal is mined as ore and used mainly in steel construction. Vanadium can be recovered as a by-product of energy production from coal-fired power plants and by burning heating oil. It is non-flammable, providing high level of safety and, thanks to its full reusability, has a high residual value. Redox-Flow technology.
The CellCube maximizes self-consumption and enables nearly energy independence of the CLB. A specialized control algorithm keeps the drawn and supplied energy from the grid at nearly zero kW Kilowatt (kW) is a unit of electrical power (energy consumption over time), 1 Kilowatt is equal to 1,000 watts. .
