A 40ft BESS Container for African Desert Rural Areas to Solve Electricity Difficulties


Africa’s power grid is aging and the coverage area is insufficient. More than 50% of African people do not have a stable power supply. These have always been a major bottleneck in Africa’s economic and social development. For those areas without power grids or areas with frequent power outages, the lack of reliable power supply seriously restricts the development of local communities and the quality of life of residents.

However, as an innovative solution, off-grid power supply with photovoltaics and energy storage system is becoming an effective means to solve this problem. Africa has the best lighting conditions in the world. Three-quarters of the land can receive vertical sunlight and is evenly distributed. It has become one of the largest markets for off-grid solar energy in the world.

Desert villages in Niger have long been plagued by insufficient power supply, especially because their remote locations are far away from the power grid. According to Niger’s latest energy strategic plan, 30% of the country’s electricity will come from renewable energy by 2030. The local government decided to adopt a renewable energy solution: a photovoltaic + energy storage system to provide a reliable power supply for villages and solve long-term power consumption. problem. This initiative will bring the dawn of sustainable development to the desert village and bring substantial improvements to the lives of residents.

The 40ft energy storage container adopts an off-grid solution and is equipped with a 770kWh battery system, consisting of five 153kWh batteries and a 600kW PCS. The container adopts 1C charging and discharging high-efficiency battery technology, combined with an AC coupling solution, to ensure the stability and reliability of the power supply.

PV + Energy Storage System

The system composed of photovoltaic + energy storage system does not require a large initial investment, making it affordable to more people. Since it uses solar energy, it is a renewable energy source that helps reduce negative impacts on the environment. Additionally, off-grid systems do not require complex infrastructure, so they can be installed and operational faster.

The combination of photovoltaic + energy storage systems brings multiple benefits to the energy industry. First of all, photovoltaic systems use solar energy, a clean and renewable energy, to help reduce dependence on fossil fuels, reduce carbon emissions, and are environmentally friendly.

Secondly, the energy storage system can store the excess electricity generated by the photovoltaic system during the day and release the electricity at night or when the weather is bad, providing a stable power supply and reducing dependence on the traditional power grid. This combination enhances the flexibility and reliability of the power system, helps balance the power load, cope with sudden power demand or power fluctuations, and improves the reliability and stability of the power system.

In addition, the use of photovoltaic + energy storage systems can also reduce energy costs, especially during peak power demand periods, and reduce reliance on expensive backup generators or power imports. Most importantly, photovoltaic + energy storage systems increase energy independence and reduce dependence on external energy supply, especially in remote areas or areas with unstable power supply, which can better meet the energy needs of residents.

SCU has rich experience in the energy storage system industry and advanced technical strength. We are committed to providing efficient and reliable energy storage solutions to customers around the world. We not only pay attention to the issue of energy shortage but also combine innovative technology with actual needs to contribute our efforts to solve local energy challenges. We will continue to cooperate with the Niger government and other African countries to jointly promote the development of clean energy and strive to achieve sustainable development goals.
