Houston, Texas (PRWEB) September 12, 2016
Toshiba International Corporation (TIC) today announced the launch of the E1000 Series Energy Management System (EMS). The E1000 Series EMS is available with a 25 kW or 50 kW photovoltaic (PV) power inverter and has energy storage options available from 18 kWh to 54 kWh. The E1000 Series EMS allows users to manage their energy and power needs through peak-shaving, and time-shifting to quickly adapt to changing utility pricing.
“The new Toshiba E1000 Series Energy Management System provides commercial end-users with more control, flexibility, and sustainability when it comes to energy savings and power usage,” said Greg Mack, vice president and general manager of the TIC Power Electronics Division. “The E1000 Series EMS gives end-users the capabilities to regulate frequency, tap into battery energy storage, and ultimately minimize energy costs.”
The first-of-its-kind EMS builds on the decades of in-house PV expertise at Toshiba and features a PV power inverter to capture and convert clean solar power. The E1000 Series EMS is designed and purpose-built at the TIC Power Electronics Plant in Houston, Texas, in response to demand for more flexible capabilities in managing commercial power usage in North America. The efficient design and small footprint allows for quick installations in retail stores, restaurants, pharmacies, and multi-family residences.
Equipped with the latest three-step, insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) technology in the rectifier/converter, DC/DC chopper, and inverter sections, the E1000 Series EMS runs on TCP/IP and supports connecting to a controller that communicates with utilities. The energy storage is supported by Toshiba’s renowned SCiB™ Rechargeable Battery modules which are known for their durability, long-life, and fast charging.
