THE CATALYST FOR DECENTRALISED ENERGY STORAGE
i-G3N is an innovative energy solutions company that produces energy storage (batteries) for residential, commercial and utility-scale applications. The i-Node, the energy storage system produced by IG3N, is designed to be high quality, robust and cost-effective. We brings storage technologies in the i-Node to support large scale availability of energy and has customer focus and agility as core values.
THE BENEFITS OF ENERGY SYSTEMS
Optimisation of energy supply
Energy storage systems such as the i-Node make the use of renewable energy more reliable and predictable because they address the issue of load balancing. Excess energy (for example during the day or during windy conditions) can be harnessed and stored for use later during periods of higher demand and low production. In other words, on cloudy days when the energy production from a solar system is low, energy from the i-Node can be used instead. Similarly, energy from the i-Node can be used during load shedding, especially at night when no energy is produced from the solar panels.
Greater Energy Security
Batteries such as the i-Node improve energy resilience in areas where the grid is occasionally disrupted. If sized correctly to peak demand, the i-Node can allow complete independence from the grid.
Reduced Electricity Bills
When batteries are excluded from the overall system cost, renewable energy installations have reached grid parity in South Africa. However, batteries such as the i-Node can be used by intelligent systems to conduct arbitrage where cost benefits are derived from backing up energy at night when the grid tariff is lower and then used during the day when the tariff is high.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
Solar energy systems as power sources, produce no carbon emissions in comparison to energy from the traditional fossil fuels such as coal and diesel. This reduced carbon footprint brings a positive spin-off to the carbon tax burden that will soon become reality in South Africa.
No Noise Pollution
Unlike generators, solar panels and battery storage systems do not create noise pollution and do no produce fumes. In addition, energy storage systems such as the i-Node require very minimal maintenance.
