Consumer magazine analyses QINOUS energy storage solutions – and their advantages.
The digital consumer magazine homeandsmart.de has taken a close look at QINOUS products. With the help of these products, the magazine writes, “charging stations for electric vehicles, for example, can be set up without having to design the entire line infrastructure fundamentally for high voltage current.” In its overview article homeandsmart explains: “Other user groups include hotels and restaurants, for example. With a QINOUS storage device, they can reliably compensate for power peaks – or be supplied with power in remote areas that are difficult to access. QINOUS solutions are already in use for the energy supply of hotel resorts in the Chilean Atacama desert and on the Indonesian island of Misool. In addition, QINOUS systems supply Alpine huts in Europe with energy as well as schools, hospitals and entire villages in Africa”. The QINOUS storage products are “on the one hand standardized and on the other hand specially adapted to existing technology, connections and customer requirements”. The consumer portal shows the economic benefit with an example calculation for a QINOUS memory with 150 kW output and 127 kilowatthours capacity. “This storage unit and a PV system with 300 kW together cost around 440,000 euros and help to save diesel costs worth around 100,000 euros each year: The combined storage PV system therefore pays for itself after just over four years. For comparison: Three years ago, the combined system would have cost 600,000 euros and only amortized after five and a half years. The article concludes: “Prices for solar modules and batteries are falling – making QINOUS storage solutions increasingly attractive”.
