Billion Electric has partnered with 10 Taiwanese green technology companies to build an eco-power station and off-grid electric bicycle station.

 

The Skynergy project on show in New York Liberty Park, New Jersey, uses a central power plant constructed around a standard shipping container and will be run by US bike rental and tour company, Bike and Roll.

 

Billion claims the “innovative design” of its solar-powered electrical bicycle station makes it highly mobile and it can be adapted for emergency relief, medical services, and energy storage station in both rural and suburban areas.

 

The company’s cloud-based smart energy management solution (SEMS) with a total of five intelligent concurrent control boxes controls the power input-output of each bicycle and monitors the charging activity.

 

Power generated by the solar panels mounted on the roof is stored in smart lithium batteries for the main energy source. Any excess energy generated is stored in fuel cells as a secondary source of power. Each fuel cell can provide more than eight hours of back-up while still operating at maximum output, the company claims.

 

The company’s smart gateway, which acts as the communication backbone for SEMS, analyses the energy consumption and transfers the information into statistical data report on the cloud centralised management platform.

 

“Skynergy is a huge step in achieving environmental sustainability. Through this project, we have shown our strong R&D capability,” said Ben Jien, ESCO/EMC business director of Billion Electric.
