  General information  
project name Yokohama Works (SEI)

This CPV project is unique in the industry as the CPV is part of a cogeneration plant. 100kW of Sumitomo CPV systems provide solar energy. In addition a gas turbine generates power. Sumitomo's Redox Flow battery technology is used to provide 5MWh of storage. The redox flow batteries store the energy generated during off-peak hours in daytime and supplies the electric power during on-peak hours providing load leveling or peak shifting. The facility is controlled by Sumitomo's factory energy management system, brand name sEMSA® (Sumitomo Energy Management System Architecture), which is capable of optimal control of multiple power sources and automatic operation for Demand Response. This project provides an excellent demonstration of what is possible when combining high efficiency CPV into an integrated energy system.
