Tesla has builds the largest energy storage system in Asia in record time, this time at Osaka train station in Japan. This system has been made to be used as emergency backup and to reduce peak energy demands.
Tesla, Inc. is an American automotive and energy company based in Palo Alto, California. The company specializes in electric car manufacturing and solar panel manufacturing. Its main vehicle manufacturing facility is at Tesla Factory in Fremont, California.
Tesla was founded in July 2003, by engineers Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning, under the name Tesla Motors. Soon, Tesla Motors was joined by Elon Musk, J. B. Straubel and Ian Wright, who call themselves the co-founders of the company. Elon Musk envisioned Tesla Motors as a technology company and independent automaker, aiming at eventually offering electric cars at prices affordable to the average consumer.
According to the company, Tesla, their newly made42 Powerpack units will provide enough energy to safely move a train and its passengers of the Osaka train station, japan, for up to 30 minutes to the nearest station in the event of a power failure.
Tesla claims that their 7MWh project makes this one its biggest energy storage development in Asia, and like its giant Australian Powerpack system. The system was completed with eye-watering speed and the hardware in it was installed in the mere time span of two days.
According to reports, the 7 megawatt-hours is its largest energy storage project in Asia, and the fourth largest in the greater Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.
