This week Adam Knudsen, Dynapower President, joined partners from Raychem RPG in India, at the Renewable Energy India Expo, Asia’s largest and most influential event in the renewable energy market.
Dynapower and Raychem RPG joined forces in May to bring Dynapower’s energy storage inverter technology to India and neighboring SAARC countries. “Dynapower’s differentiated technology such as its patented Dynamic Transfer, their focus on solutions, and aggressive growth mindset aligns perfectly with the Raychem RPG business model,” said Ramani Kasi, Raychem RPG President & CEO.
Since partnering, Dynapower and Raychem RPG commissioned India’s first 1MW microgrid at the Central Electronics Limited (CEL) solar-photovoltaic (SPV) cell manufacturing facility in Sahibadad, Uttar Pradesh, India. The project is a locally controllable power system composed to distribute generation combining solar and diesel gensets alongside energy storage connected to the main grid power system.
The CEL project was a central talking point at the Energy India Expo, where Knudsen cut the ribbon for Raychem’s booth alongside Nitin Sharma, Raychem RPG Vice President and Business Head Solar & Energy Storage, to begin the tradeshow.
“The project should run both in on-grid mode, as well as grid-forming mode, which is when the grid is not available, and still provide the best possible high quality, uninterrupted power, which is really critical. We’re extremely happy, the project is working well, and we had support from Dynapower,” Sharma said.
Knudsen not only met with partners at Raychem RPG, but also connected with other emerging renewable energy companies, to talk about DC-DC energy storage. “It’s great to see the excitement around the energy market here in India. We’re excited to introduce energy storage to the Indian market and hopefully impact people’s lives by providing clean and reliable energy,” Knudsen wrote back to Dynapower in an email.
