Idenergy Corp.


Idenergy is a clean-tech company that develops and integrates innovative renewable energy products and solutions.

Following the development of our first product, a residential river turbine, using its advanced power electronics knowledge and platform, we are currently developing and getting ready to commercialize the next generation of a solar and renewable energy residential converter featuring advanced smart-grid capabilities. It offers scalability and high conversion efficiency in addition to being agnostic to battery types. As grid-tied solar power grows, grids become unstable, requiring control over the various Distributed Energy Resources (DER) spread on the network (smart-grid technology), if more solar power is to be integrated into the grid. Increasing solar will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

Description
Our next-generation smart-grid solar energy management platform enables remote control and residential energy storage.

Idenergy is developing and about to commercialize a next-generation smart-grid renewable energy management platform based on its advanced power electronics and electrical converter technology. The rise in home owners and businesses using solar power has reached a point where it is creating grid instability and other problems, and thus preventing further deployment of Decentralized Energy Resources (“DER”), such as solar photovoltaic power. To keep grids within acceptable parameters, utilities now need to turn energy distribution networks into smart grids. Energy providers need to communicate with individual residential energy or DER, such as solar panels or residential batteries, and other systems to ensure that the grid remains within acceptable parameters. Electrical converters are also an indispensable part of photovoltaic power generation. They allow the power coming from the panels to be transformed into usable electricity, sending it to batteries, appliances, or the grid. On a smart grid, grid operators are then able to send orders directly to the converters and thus increase control over stability on the network. Idenergy's innovative residential energy management system integrates into one platform (i) highly efficient solar PV conversion modules (ii) inverter modules which generate AC current, (iii) battery charger modules and (iv) communication module for remote control capabilities. Transformerless, fanless and engineered with electricians, home owners and smart-grid requirements in mind, with easily swappable modules, offering great flexibility, Idenergy’s platform targets the soft costs of solar projects, simplifying their design and installation, such as design and installation expenses, which will be simplified.
