MUMBAI - November 7, 2012 - SunCarrier Omega, a premier provider of turnkey renewable energy solutions, won the maiden Intersolar AWARD 2012 for "Solar Projects in India". The SunCarrier Omega Net-Zero Energy Building was awarded in the category of Industrial and Commercial use. The facility has also received the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification, LEED India Platinum, the highest award category, for its sustainable design and green practices from the Indian Green Building Council, licensed by the US Green Building Council.
The SunCarrier Omega Net-Zero Energy building is significant for the energy conservation principles adopted, the integrated renewable energy generation and storage solutions deployed, and for its being a replicable and scalable model that could find application in industries like telecommunications, hospitality, manufacturing, and commercial and residential buildings. This democratizes access to reliable and 'clean' energy, helps preserve earth's environment, and is a viable energy model for developing economies like some of the Asian, African and South American countries with large power deficits and a high incidence of solar irradiance.
The key supply-side components of the SunCarrier Omega Net-Zero Energy Building are the SunCarrier sun-tracking solar photovoltaic generator, and the Cellcube vanadium redox flow battery. One of the largest of its kind, the SunCarrier generates upto 40% more electricity than similarly rated fixed installation. The SunCarrier systems are available in various configurations, and generation capacities ranging from 4.3 kWp to 53 kWp per unit. Available in capacities of 10 kW and higher, and storage capacities from 40 kWh upto MWh. Cellcube is a large capacity energy storage and management system with a design life of over 20 years of deep-cycle operation.
