储能要闻
S&C电气公司退出储能业务而专注于微电网市场

可再生能源网讯:根据行业媒体Greentech Media报道, S&C电气公司决定将退出储能开发业务,专注于微电网。而该公司在生产存储系统(如逆变器)方面已有10多年的历史。

S&C公司在2006年部署了第一个电池系统。但是由于电池行业对电池生产速度和数量猛增,该公司由于产能问题无法大规模地生产电池。

该公司专注于微电网开发和智能开关组件,2017年它帮助电力部门避免了大量的客户中断时间。美国劳伦斯伯克利国家实验室(Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory)的研究显示,电力中断对于美国消费者来说是一笔巨大的开支,对于工业和商业部门而言尤其如此。

随着公用事业规模的储能部署迅速增长,电池生产正朝着特斯拉公司及其Gigafactory的方向发展。特斯拉公司计划生产每年35吉瓦时的锂离子电池,其产量几乎与全球其他电池产量相当。

S&C公司业务发展高级总监David Chiesa表示:“大批量生产电池不是S&C所擅长的业务。”

与其相反,S&C公司将专注于智能电网产品和微电网项目。该公司对减少电力中断特别感兴趣。美国劳伦斯伯克利国家实验室估计每年大量的电力中断造成美国经济损失约为790亿美元。98%的电力中断都影响了商业和工业用户的业务运行。

S&C美国公司总裁迈克•埃德蒙兹(Mike Edmonds)在日前发布的公告中表示,“电力中断对各种规模客户的影响成为了人们在2017年关注的焦点”。

S&C公司对250多家能源管理公司的“商业和工业电力可靠性状况”进行了调查,发现25%的企业每个月至少遭遇一次电力中断事件。此外,S&C公司的调查研究表明,71%的商业和工业客户已经拥有或开发替代能源的计划。(中国储能网独家编译,转载请注明来源)

S&C Electric to exit storage business

After more than a decade producing storage systems, such as invertors, S&C Electric will exit the storage development business to focus on microgrids, Greentech Media reports.

S&C deployed its first battery system in 2006. But since thenthe rate and volume of battery production in the industry has skyrocketed, and the company says that kind of volume was never its strong suit.

The company focuses on microgrid development and smart switching components, saying last year it helped utilities avoid more than 2.4 billion customer-outage minutes. Outages are significant expense for United States consumers, but particularly for the industrial and commercial sectors, according to research by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.

Brief

Dive Insight:

With utility-scale energy storage rapidly growing, battery production is trending in the direction of Tesla and its Gigafactory. The company has plans to produce 35 GWh/year of lithium-ion battery cells — a volume the company boasts is almost as much as the rest of the entire world’s battery production combined.

"That high-volume manufacturing game has never really been what S&C is great at," David Chiesa, senior director of business development at S&C, told GTM.

Instead, S&C will focus on smart grid products and microgrid projects. The company is particularly interested in reducing power outages, which Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory estimates cost the U.S. economy approximately $79 billion a year. And the overwhelming portion of that, 98%, affects commercial and industrial customers.

Mike Edmonds, president of S&C's U.S. business, said in an announcement last week that 2017 "shined a spotlight on the impact power outages have on customers of all sizes."

S&C surveyed more than 250 energy managers for its “State of Commercial & Industrial Power Reliability” report, and found 25% of companies experience power outages at least once a month. S&C's research also showed 71% of commercial and industrial customers own or plan to develop alternative energy sources.
