INTRODUCTION TO SOLARGY INNOVATION

Solargy Innovation specializes in environmental consulting and product development, primarily within the renewable energy sector. The firm was founded in 2010 and is headquartered in Sydney, Australia.

Solargy's CEO, Michael Morton, is a thirty-year veteran of energy management consulting, technical product R&D and IT systems implementations. In the past six years Solargy Innovation has conducted environmental systems and technology projects in the USA, Sri Lanka, China and Australia. We are devoted to green technology solutions and advancement of renewable energy storage products. Our motto “Sustainability for Life” embodies the concept that our existence on earth is dependent upon developing and adopting sustainable solutions for food production, shelter, transportation and manufacturing as well as Solargy's lifetime commitment to that goal.

TECHNICAL EXPERTISE

Solargy provides a combination of innovative R&D services and practical, real-world solutions. We build and successfully implement what we design.

For example, Solargy developed a flame accelerant technology that enables conventional internal combustion engines to operate more efficiently on a hybrid mix of hydrocarbon fuels and hydrogen. [See the video]. Solargy has also developed wide-area, digital-mesh networks and rapid-prototyping solutions for 3D printed circuit boards. In the past five years, we focused on the development of a world-class hybrid lead-acid | lithium battery array that scales from residential use through to industrial scale installations. The Solargy Hybrid Battery Array (HBA) addresses the massive growth in demand for low-cost, high performamce and reliable energy storage.


PROJECT SERVICES

Solargy has led the design and delivery of large-scale commercial environmental projects, enterprise-class IT system implementations, government-sector initiatives and energy management projects.

Our project services include environmental impact assessments, financial impact analysis, solutions architecture & design, equipment installation, and sustainable energy implementations. For example, Solargy designed the winning concept for a passive air-conditioning system which significantly reduced the electrical energy consumption at a data centre operated by an International Airport (located within the state of Victoria, Australia). Prior to the implementation of the new air conditioning system, the data centre was one of Victoria's largest retail electricity consumers. After installation, it became the most energy-efficient data centre in the Southern Hemisphere.

SOLARGY HYBRID BATTERY ARRAY

Solargy's Hybrid Battery Array (HBA) is a patented, high performance and low cost Lead-Acid | Lithium energy storage technology. The HBA can deliver continuous electrical power into industrial, commercial and consumer base loads.

The HBA has successfully progressed through the various stages of R&D, prototyping and productization. Versions of the HBA have been tested in real-life environments and have demonstrated significant advantages over traditional Lead-Acid battery arrays. The HBA advantages include +50% cost savings over most Lithium systems, long life, very fast charge and discharge cycles and an +80% reduction in weight over L-A. The HBA energy storage solution features a state-of-the-art battery management system (BMS) and customizable Internet of Things (IoT) remote monitoring capabilities.


HBA APPLICATIONS

HBA for SOLAR ENERGY

Solargy’s unique combination of Lead-Acid and Lithium battery components enables the Hybrid Battery Array to recharge quickly during time frames of limited sunlight availability. The HBA extends life-time battery performance when compared to traditional Lead-Acid batteries. This is accomplished by reducing the frequency and duration of full Depth of Discharge (DoD) events. The Solargy HBA can be scaled in many ways including variations of the L-A|Li battery ratio, total battery count and aggregation of HBAs into super clusters. Battery array implementations can be customized to match a solar installation’s power storage and distribution needs.

HBA for WIND FARMS

Solargy’s Hybrid Battery Array supports centralized array and battery component management through on-site wireless and radio-based communication technologies. As with solar installations, individual arrays and array combinations can be customized to varying recharge and power supply needs. HBA units can be encased in individually-weatherized frames. For large-scale applications, super-arrays can be located within environmentally-managed shipping container enclosures.

HBA for MICROGRIDS

Advanced micro-grid systems are often installed with Power and Energy Management control systems. PEMs direct the flow of energy, adjust grid power levels, and seek to maximize battery array performance.

Solargy's HBA supports industry-unique, controller-level integration between individual/super-arrays and micro-grid PEM systems. HBAs can be monitored through IoT technologies to ascertain the charge/discharge characteristics down to the battery component level. From a battery supply chain perspective Solargy Arrays enable Lithium battery component verification. This RFID-based verification technology creates a proprietary and protected battery supply chain for HBA manufacturing partners and distributors.



CONTINUOUS POWER SUPPLY

Successfully-managed continuous power supply environments are predicated upon correctly-scaled and adequately-charged battery components.

Customer-specified continuous power supply needs are easily met with simple adjustments to the ratio of the Lead-Acid (L-A) and Lithium (Li) battery components of the HBA. Battery replacement can be performed in the field and within consumer environments without specialized equipment or advanced technical training. To ensure a reliable power supply, battery component charge information is provided via easily-viewed green-amber-red LEDs located above each battery. Key data points of charge and power supply states are continuously monitored through customized battery management systems, software, and controller components designed into each HBA.
