The accelerating growth in the number of photovoltaic installations is becoming a problem for the national power system, but electricity storage solutions could ease this burden.
“There is concern about the growing number of PV plants, and the national energy system is becoming increasingly unfriendly, so energy storage solutions are coming, including for residential customers, to reduce pressure on the energy system,” said Tiberiu Bretfelean, National Sales Manager at Photon Energy Group, at the conference “Digitalization and Energy Efficiency – Cluj-Napoca”, organized by Energynomics.
Photon Energy, based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, was founded in 2008, is currently active in more than ten countries, and employs over 400 people. The Romanian subsidiary was established in 2015 and employs 30 people, with a portfolio of projects in the local market approaching 50 MW.
Globally, the company has 911 MW of renewable energy projects in various stages of execution, of which 113 MW represent its own portfolio.
The company has integrated into its operations the Photon Water division, which carries out water, water clarity, and land remediation projects and introduces photovoltaic solutions to these processes.
Photon Water has a pilot project to retrofit a wastewater treatment plant in Romania, and demand for such work is “growing”.
The conference “Digitalization and Energy Efficiency – Cluj-Napoca” was organised by Energynomics with the support of our partners ADC, BCR, Elgeka Ferfelis, EnergoBit, Kawasaki Gas Turbine, Noark, Parapet, Photon Energy, Volt.
