Leclanché to Showcase Battery Energy Storage Systems at Intersolar Europe 2016, June 22-24 in Munich
Technology innovations in the home storage, stationary and mobility markets to be on display

Yverdon-les-Bains, Schweiz (ots) - Leclanché S.A., the fully vertically integrated, battery energy storage solution provider, will be showcasing its innovative energy storage solutions at Intersolar Europe, June 22-24 in Munich, Germany.

At booth B1.170 ees, Leclanché executives will be available to discuss the technology behind their array of home energy, stationary and mobile storage systems. The company will be introducing its new power inverter which is fully compatible with Leclanche's range of home storage products, including its TiBox(TM) long lasting home storage system with lithium titanate. The company's solar battery storage systems buffer energy to be released when the supply from the solar panels is insufficient and stores excess energy for later use.

Leclanché currently offers a wide range of turnkey energy storage solutions for homes, small offices, large industries, electricity grids, as well as hybridization for mass transport systems such as bus fleets and ferries. Current large-scale projects include:

- Renewable Energy Grid for Graciosa - Leclanché, in partnership with Younicos, is building the world's first megawatt-scale micro-grid renewable energy plus storage system, integrated with wind, solar generation, on the island of Graciosa in the Azores, Portugal.

E-ferry - Leclanché is providing the battery system for the world's largest battery operated ferryboat to be built by Danish shipbuilder Søby Shipyard Ltd, part of the EU initiative Horizon 2020. The ferry will be placed in service in June, 2017 to transport vehicles and passengers between island Ærø and the mainland in Denmark.

- Fully Electric BB Green Commuter Vessel - Leclanché provided the battery energy storage system for BB Green, the world's fastest Air Supported Vessel, which has been launched at Latitude Yachts in Riga, Latvia.

- Grid Ancillary Services for Ontario, Canada - Leclanché has been selected to supply one of the largest energy storage systems in the world as part of a joint project with Deltro Energy Inc. covering six ancillary services agreements with Ontario's Independent Electricity System Operator (IESO).

Established in 1909, Leclanché has been a reliable partner for battery energy storage solutions for over 100 years. Founded in the tradition of Georges Leclanché, the inventor of the dry cell battery, Leclanché today has a rich portfolio of Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) that include bespoke battery systems from industry leading lithium-ion solutions. Since 2006, the company moved from a traditional battery producer to become one of the first developers, manufacturers and provided of lithium-ion cells in Europe. Leclanché's BESS are optimized for various applications, in particular for the integration of renewable energy, diesel fuel reduction, electricity grid-connected ancillary services, peak power shaving for heavy industries, as well as for heavy duty transportation in buses, trams, trains or maritime vessels. Leclanché products are characterized by a very high cycle stability (both for cells with titanate and graphite anodes) and industry-leading long service life resulting into reduced total cost of ownership. With its patented separator technology, which is a core element of lithium-ion batteries, Leclanché is able to make cells with very good safety characteristics, under a highly automated production process. Leclanché operates a fully automated plant for the production of large format lithium-ion cells at an annual maximum capacity of up to one million cells and is capable of running multiple chemistries through production for different cell characteristics. In addition, Leclanché offers a number of specialized battery systems through its Portable Business Unit, such as customer-specific energy storage systems for defence and medical applications. Leclanché also distributes primary and secondary batteries and accessories of other producers.
