New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO)
On November 20th (local time), NEDO, in collaboration with Tabuchi Electric Co., Ltd., began operation of a hybrid inverter system for unified control of solar panels and storage batteries as part of its first smart community demonstration project in the Canadian city of Oshawa, Ontario.
The project involves the installation of hybrid inverter systems for unified control of solar panels and storage batteries in 30 homes in Oshawa. Demonstrations will run through the end of fiscal year (FY) 2016.
During that time the project will attempt to establish a disaster-resilient housing model that coexists with renewable energy by verifying that the system can be utilized as an emergency power source in the event of a power outage in addition to providing grid stabilization. The project also aims to develop a business model that can be expanded to other parts of the world.
