SolarLEAF Energy Storage

A modular energy storage system for large-scale building applications

Identification

SolarLEAF is a distributed energy storage solution that directly PV couples to solar panels and installs underneath them. This panel-level format is enabled by an advanced thermal management design which passively ensures that the batteries are maintained at optimal operating conditions. The solution directly addresses the high-cost variability of energy storage installations. These include: permitting, interconnection, customer acquisition, project origination, EPC and other project overheads. In particular, commercial installations in the 50kWh to 1MWh often lack a location to site the energy storage. Yotta addresses this challenge directly. The installation is in-line with the solar installation, requiring very limited additional training for existing solar installers and provides them with a standardized approach for deploying energy storage.
