Mission

„We don‘t believe in storytelling, but storage selling. The most important energy is the power in our heads. We burn for green energy.“
 

Activities

The focus of YOUNICOS is storage technology and the integration of renewable energy into isolated grids. The storage technologies the company works with are: Li-Ion batteries, Vanadium-Redox Flow Batteries and Sodium Sulphur batteries. The Pilot project is the electrification of the Azorean Island Graciosa with a 100% RE penetration most of the time and an annual share of 75% RE. The core components are the island inverters with a 3MW/18MWh NaS-Battery. Start of operation will be the end of 2012.
 

Projects and programmes

  • Graciosa Energy

    YOUNICOS is building a renewable energy system for the Azorean island Graciosa which will produce 75% of the electricity by 9 MW wind and 1MW sun. The core component is a 3MW/18MWh Sodium Sulphure battery with intelligent inverters. The system allows to have the Diesel generator switched-off most of the time. The start of constraction will be in the beginning of 2012. The system is price competitive to the current diesel based system.
