Toshiba, Sharp and Hitachi share 13MW power plant for TEPCO
30 November 2009 | By Mark Osborne | News > Power Generation


Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) is planning a 13MW solar power plant located in the Waterfront District in Kawasaki, Kanagawa prefecture, which could become the largest of its type so far built in Japan. The Ukishima Solar Power Plant project would seem to be shared between Toshiba and Hitachi, with Toshiba responsible for 7MW with the use of its own central inverters and the use of Sharp c-Si PV modules. Hitachi is said to be contracted for designing, manufacturing and testing the photovoltaic system.

However, Toshiba said in a statement that it was selected as prime contractor for development of its apparent half of the plant.

Toshiba also noted that the new power plant would also be the first solar power generator operated by TEPCO, which is scheduled to start operation in fiscal year 2011.The solar module installation area was said to be approximately 10 hectares for Toshiba's 7MW part of the project.

TOKIO. Wie andere Industrieländer will Nippon die Stromversorgung von zentraler Produktion in Großkraftwerken auf lokale Lösungen umstellen. Bis zum Jahr 2020 wollen die Stromversorger des Landes daher offenbar mehr als 7,5 Mrd. Euro in den Aufbau so genannter „Smart Grids“ stecken. Das Auftragsvolumen liege im aktuellen Fall jedoch zunächst nur um 40 Mio. Euro, sagte Toshiba-Technologievorstand Shoji Takenaka gestern in Tokio.

Die „Smart Grids“ gelten derzeit als die Zukunft der Energieversorgung. In Deutschland lassen Wirtschafts- und Umweltministerium derzeit in zwölf Modellregionen die Umsetzbarkeit der Idee untersuchen. US-Präsident Barack Obama hat bereits 3,4 Mrd. Dollar für den Aufbau von Pilotprojekten in den USA zur Verfügung stellen lassen. In Japan bauen die Stromversorger Okinawa Electric Power und Kyushu Electric Power nun auf den südlichsten Inselgruppen des Landes in den kommenden Jahren zehn Beispielnetze auf. Toshiba liefert für das Projekt in Okinawa Batterien und Solaranlagen.

Computer verteilen in Smart Grids den Strom aus Windrädern, Solarzellen oder örtlichen Kleinkraftwerken ständig neu, um eine gleichmäßige Versorgung zu sichern. Bei Stromüberschuss – wenn etwa die Sonne scheint – speichert das System die Energie in Akkus zwischen. Es lädt dann beispielsweise auch die Batterien angeschlossener Elektroautos. In einer Sekunde argen Strommangels könnte andere Verbraucher sich umgekehrt aus den Batterien von geparkten Autos bedienen.

Japans Technikfirmen überbieten sich derzeit mit Zubehör für die Smart Grids. Toshiba hat bereits den Protoyp für das „Smart House“ fertig gestellt, das sich mit den Ladecomputern von Hybridautos des Fahrzeugherstellers Toyota verbindet. Toyota schätzt, dass bei Ausnutzung aller Möglichkeiten in Gegenden mit gutem Wetter bereits eine Solaranlage mit einer Leistung von sechs Kilowatt reicht, um die Stromversorgung eines Haushalts plus Autofahrten bis zu 10 000 Kilometer mit einem Elektroauto zu ermöglichen.

Die japanische Regierung will zusammen mit 20 führenden Strom- und Technologiefirmen in den kommenden drei Jahren einheitliche Standards für die Stromnetze festlegen – damit beispielsweise Zulieferungen von Hitachi problemlos mit Komponenten von Panasonic oder Toshiba zusammen arbeiten. Japan wird auf dem möglichen Zukunftsmarkt auch bereits als Exporteur aktiv. Die Windkraftfirma Japan Wind Development Co. wird vermutlich am ersten britischen Smart Grid auf den Orkney-Inseln beteiligt sein, wie japanische Wirtschaftsmedien meldeten. Tokio will auch gegenüber der indischen Regierung darauf hinwirken, dass die eigene Industrie beim geplanten Netzaufbau in dem Entwicklungsland zum Zuge kommt.

Anfang Januar hatten Zeitungsmeldungen zu dem geplanten Netzumbau an der Börse Tokio heftige Nachfrage nach Werten entsprechender Anbieter ausgelöst. Angefangen mit bekannten Spielern wie Tokyo Electric Power und Panasonic stiegen die Werte auch unbekannter Unternehmen, die in Zusammenhang mit Smart Grids gebracht werden können. Es stiegen beispielsweise die Aktien des Relaisherstellers Toko Electric oder des Stromzähler-Anbieters Osaki Electric.

Toshiba Makes Full-scale Entry into Residential Solar Photovoltaic Systems Business
Starting sales of systems with solar panels offering high level conversion efficiency[1]
1 Mar, 2010

TOKYO—Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) today announced that it will make its full-scale entry into the residential solar photovoltaic systems business in Japan on April 1st 2010, with the goal of winning a 10% share of the Japanese market by fiscal year 2012.

Toshiba's residential solar photovoltaic systems comprise photovoltaic modules, power conditioners and color LCD that displays the overall system status. The photovoltaic modules will be supplied by SunPower Corporation (NASDAQ: SPWRA, SPWRB) and will integrate solar cells that achieve a conversion efficiency of cells of 21.5%, one of the highest[2]commercially available conversion efficiencies. Toshiba's photovoltaic systems will combine these modules with a power conditioner and achieve a total power generating efficiency rate of 15.9%. This level of performance will allow configuration of smaller, lighter systems suited to Japanese residences.

In entering the residential solar photovoltaic systems business, Toshiba will draw on its experience in the solar photovoltaic systems market for utilities and industrial plants, and its high level capabilities in system integration and deployment. The business will initially have about 30 employees, a number expected to grow to approximately 80 by fiscal year 2012. Toshiba will promote the business by establishing a training center to support the contractors who will install the systems, and expects to conduct training programs for approximately 3,000 employees of contractors by the end of fiscal year 2010.

Going forward, Toshiba aims to drive business expansion with an enhanced product line-up that can meet a wide range of needs for the residential solar photovoltaic systems.
Background and Objectives

A growing awareness of the need to counteract global warming is prompting various measures to promote residential solar systems in Japan. Prefectural and city governments are introducing purchase subsidy programs, and power companies have established a feed-in tariff system that pays a premium rate for surplus electricity to owners of solar power systems connected to the grid.

In fiscal year 2015 the residential solar photovoltaic systems market scale in Japan is expected to reach approximately 600 billion yen, up from 140 billion yen in fiscal year 2008, and further growth over the long term is widely expected. In this market situation, Toshiba will strengthen its line-up of energy-saving products for households by entering into the market for residential solar photovoltaic systems, alongside its current businesses in promoting home-electrification, LED lighting, and low power consumption digital products.

Toshiba is also promoting a next generation power network system for its emerging Smart Grid business. Since residential solar photovoltaic systems are an important dispersed power generation source in Smart Grids, full scale entry into this business will allow Toshiba to strengthen its overall business capabilities in Smart Grids.

Toshiba is also involved in the rechargeable battery business with its innovative SCiB and in the smart meter business. With the combination of these products, Toshiba aims to promote sales of total solar photovoltaic systems that build on its current businesses.
