Shopping mall

High-capacity battery storage system brAIn

Delivery point: OC Laugaricio, Trenčín

The Laugaricio shopping center in Trenčín has decided to install a smart battery storage brAIn with a capacity of 648 kWh. This solution was designed with their annual electricity consumption of 7,000 MWh in mind. To optimize energy consumption and costs for the shopping center, we designed a battery setup with an inverter power of 600 kW and a battery capacity of 648 kWh. The project required some construction adjustments before placing the container, specifically, building a concrete base for the area under the storage.

Office building

High-capacity battery storage system brAIn

Delivery point: Tower 115, Bratislava

Modernization of the building does not have to consume either time or money, simply choose the right solution. The installation of a brAIn interior storage with a capacity of 432 kWh for Tower 115 is a prime example of the transformation of an older office building lacking the possibility to install rooftop solar panels into an energy-efficient, cost-saving and emissions-saving facility.

In this case, it was an installation within the Smart battery storage brAIn as a service model in cooperation with its electricity supplier Slovenské elektrárne – energetické služby. Tower 115 received free battery storage without any worries, while the building is able to save more than 400 tons of CO2 emissions annually. We placed the storage in the basement of the building in a room that used to be a warehouse. Despite the use of non-flammable LiFePO4 batteries, we also equipped the room with a modern aerosol fire extinguisher. A professional cooling system takes care of temperature control.

Shopping mall

High-capacity battery storage system brAIn

Delivery point: OC Galéria, Martin

Our first, entirely indoor battery storage brAIn is now located in the Galéria shopping mall in Martin. It has a capacity of 108 kWh and was installed in cooperation with the energy supplier Slovenské elektrárne - energetické služby through the Smart battery storage brAIn as a service model.

The Galéria received the battery storage brAIn completely free of charge, and at the same time, receives a part of the revenue generated, thereby reducing its total energy costs.This is done by brAIn’s efficient management of electricity consumption from the power grid. In addition, the Galéria no longer has to purchase expensive certificates of origin of electricity from green sources. The brAIn storage reduces the shopping center's carbon footprint, by up to 28% annually, even without solar panels.

This time we also utilized the residual heat from the batteries, which our system blows into a previously unheated corridor, while cold air is drawn into the battery storage room to cool the batteries. This extra adjustment increased the energy efficiency of the entire solution and at the same time, improved the work environment for Galéria shopping mall employees.

Automotive plant

High-capacity battery storage system brAIn

Delivery point: Hanon Systems Slovakia, Ilava

We installed a smart battery storage brAIn with a total capacity of 864 kWh for the Ilava company Hanon Systems Slovakia, which manufactures air conditioning equipment for the automotive industry. The battery storage was designed according to the company’s diagram of electricity consumption and production from rooftop solar panels which have an installed capacity of 499,5 kWp. The battery installation did require a few custom modifications. In order to get as close as possible to the main switchboard without blocking a nearby access road, we stacked two container storages with a capacity of 432 kWh and connected them by a special walking platform with retractable stairs.

The storage helps to use the energy produced from the solar panels to the maximum extent, earning a profit by providing so-called non-certified ancillary services and saving CO2 emissions as well. Hanon Systems Slovakia obtained solar panels for operating lease and the brAIn smart battery storage for rent from its energy supplier, Slovenské elektrárne – energetické služby, s.r.o., through the Energy as a Service model.
