ACME installed first Li-ion based energy storage solution


ACME, a leader in energy management and innovative solutions for alternate energy sector with presence in solar power generation, today announced that it has installed its first Li-ion based Energy Storage Solution for a leading telecom tower company post successful trials of the solution at various sites across India for more than an year.

This installation has been done by ACME under its exclusive and strategic agreement with Korean energy storage system giant to manufacture and marketing of lithium ion based energy storage solutions in telecom, buildings, solar power, defence sectors and other allied industries.

This installation marks ACME’s entry into Indian market with vast scope of efficient energy storage solutions considering the high usage of polluting fuel-based energy generation.

Announcing this feat, Mr Samir Sharan, Chief Executive Officer, ACME said, “This solution is the future of energy storage and holds great prospects for high energy-consuming sectors like telecom, realty, renewables and many more.

This green solution has revolutionized the way we store energy by efficiently managing the energy needs in the financially competitive market segment while being challenged environmentally.”

He further added, “This is another step forward by ACME to solve the biggest challenge of the Indian Telecom industry by offering the right storage solutions from Kilo Watt to Mega Watt class. This will help users to eliminate their diesel generators and cut down on the carbon footprint with higher efficiency.”

While this new-age ESS has a miniscule share in the overall energy storage segment, it will capture 50% share globally in this segment by year 2020. Energy storage integration with the telecom tower is a better prospective for the sustainable future. Energy storage application can provide 20-25% of annual savings in current fuel cost to the operators.

Why Energy storage application is a better solution to fuel issue of telecom tower?

  • Initial Capital Expenditure –moderate
  • Operational Expense – Low
  • Reliability – High
  • Capacity – High (As per the requirement of the tower)
  • Dependency – Low (Independent to geographic location)
  • Fuel availability – Can be integrated to Grid and Renewable energy source both
  • Eco Friendliness – High
