Taiwan Eco Power Station to fight climate change

By Editor


Taiwan has unveiled the Eco-Power Station (EPS), a totally off-the-grid system that is entirely self-powered by solar energy.

The EPS, designed by the Green Trade Project Office, has brought together ten innovative Taiwanese green-technology producers in order to demonstrate the viability of a green solution to the crisis of climate change.

The solution features a 5 kW thin-film photovoltaic module as well as a 5kW lithium-ion battery.

Basically, the EPS has been created out of a 40 by 8 foot shipping container that will actually serve as an electric-bicycle station. In addition, the entire rooftop area of the station is covered with GEAC’s thin-film solar panels. These panels feed the station’s smart grid with electricity, with any excess electricity then stored in the station’s batteries.

The system feature lithium-ion battery from TD HiTech and Ecolohas Energy Tech and Billion Electric’s smart-energy-management system.

The station has also installed M-Field’s hydrogen fuel cell to provide reliable backup power, in case of blackouts.

Heatax’s insulation coating, another technology used in this system, has been widely hailed for having the highest cost-to-performance value of all thermal insulation paints in Taiwan.

Nustone provides another noteworthy coatingthat can completely transform ordinary surfaces by giving them the look and feel of stone, with less difficulty and less expense.

Inside the EPS, Renato-lab’s eye-catching RE/Luminance incorporates reclaimed brightness enhancement films, which are usually found inside LED panels.

The Eco-Power Station also features Jia-Qian Rubber Tech’s rubber flooring tiles, which are made of 100 percent recycled tires.

A solar pillar from SunValue is another type of functional artwork in the EPS that enables cell phones to be charged with the power generated by the pillar’s bricks.

The EPS is scheduled to be shipped to Liberty State Park, New Jersey, in the United States of America, in March of 2016, to be used as one of the area’s bicycle rental stations run by Bike and Roll.
