Pilot of a solar container with energy storage.

Impact

  • Contributes to the decarbonisation of the economy: with an estimated energy production of 15.76MWh, the solar container will avoid the emission of 3.2 tonnes of CO2 per year, the equivalent to the CO2 absorption capacity of 145 trees. At the same time, the transportation of the container avoids 100% of the costs and emissions involved with the traditional model, since it is planned that it will be carried out by heavy-duty vehicles which are powered by green hydrogen (in Portugal and abroad).

  • Promotes innovation in the provision of modern sustainable energy services: presenting itself as a natural alternative to diesel generators (a considerable source of atmospheric pollution), normally used in shipyards and civil construction works, this project is innovative in its ability to move to places where it is necessary to use power.

Project Information

The aim of this campaign is to finance a pilot project for the construction and marketing of a solar container with energy storage. The project is promoter by Pleno Energia, a company which is part of the Joyn Group, and which has already obtained three loans through GoParity in the past.  

The container measures 6 x 2.4 meters, and will be equiped with 28 monocrystalline photovoltaic panels with 450W, and a set of 6 lithium batteries with 4.2 kW. 

In total, it will have 36kWp (panels & bateries) of installed power, and capacity to produce on average 15.76 MWh of clean energy and hance avoid the emission of nearly 23.64 tonnes of CO2 per year. The set of batteries has 25.2kW of power. The construction, installation and operation of the solar panels and set of batteries will be conducted by Pleno Energia, a Portuguese Energy Marketing and Energy Services provider, which will also be the project’s promoter and the owner of the equipment. The company will also be in charge of the energy marketing.  

The container is the ideal solution for construction sites which have no access to electrictiy since it allows for a rapid installation (ready to be used in just 4 hours) and ensures a reduction of up to 5 times in the cost of energy, which would have otherwise been produced by a diesel generator. The container has other advantages: it does not comprise fuel costs, nor does it comprise supply-related logistics; it has reduced maintenance, does not produce any noise or smell; it reduces the risk of work-related accidents, the container can also be used to store tools and documents, and its energy production and storage capacities can be increased at any time.  

The panels have a lifespan of up to 25 years, the bateries can last up to 12 years and the exterior lights up to 5 years.  

Financial Viability

This pilot project requires a total investment of € 24,000, of which € 19k will be raised through GoParity. The remaining funds will be funded by Pleno Energia’s own capital.  

The company has some leads on potentials interested clients in the construction, agriculture and events industries. The project has an estimated national scope of around 5,000 clients. Pleno Energia hence expects to on-board at least 0.1% of existing and active clients in the market (in sales of equipment).  

The container shall be leased at a price ranging from € 350 to € 500 per month; or sold for € 28,000 plus VAT.  

Pleno Energia is unaware of any other company which might have developed such product in Portugal.

About Plenoenergia, Lda

Founded in 2017 (officially in 2019 as Pleno Energia) by Paulo Ribeiro and Eurico Sobral, Pleno Energia is a small company operating in the renewable energy sector, headquartered in Carnaxide, district of Lisbon.

The company is part of the Joyn Group, a technological company with over 400 employees and 20 years of experience in consulting in the banking, insurance, and energy industries, among others.

In the construction sector, the company will possess construction licenses for public and private works, as well as a projects office which will be responsible for the licensing, architecture projects, and specialties.

In 2017, Pleno Energia was founded as an energy marketer and, since 2019, it is also dedicated itself to providing other energy services, from energy efficiency (LED lighting) to the installation and maintenance of solar panels for self-consumption, and energy coating projects.

The company intends to expand its business with the goal of “bringing solar energy to all”, growing its offer to small facilities, targeting individuals, rural tourism, and social organizations (mostly private social solidarity institutions).

The Business Model

The company’s product and services catalog includes:

  • Heating systems: sale, installation, and servicing of thermal solar panels, heating solar kits, and heat pumps.

  • Solar energy: technical evaluation to assess energy consumption and site characteristics, installation of panels, monitoring of the licensing and certification process with the Directorate-General for Energy, and monitoring, operation, and maintenance after the installation.

  • Energy efficiency: engineering project, construction, sale, and installation of LED lighting for retail, industry, and housing.

  • Electric mobility: sale of slow and semi-fast charging equipment in partnership with evolut also part of the same group.

Track Record

Founded in 2017 by Eurico Sobral, Pleno Energia currently has 5 direct employees and has an international network of employees in Portugal, Spain, and Brazil, with around 90 operations to support the energy regeneration of companies.

It also has its own technical team specialized in the installation of solar photovoltaic plants, and an engineering team that develops and implements solar and similar energy solutions for its customers.

Currently, its client portfolio is composed mainly of companies, but also counts a number of private individuals, with projects located from North to South of Portugal, and an aggregated installed capacity of circa 900 kW. The company is also expanding its operations to Spain.

Between 2019 and 2020, Pleno Energia has installed the solar panels of the following projects financed by GoParity: Landal I, Landal II, Bright Future Ramada, Solar Nursing Home, and Solar Metalworks Leiria. Nevertheless, this is the first time the company will play the role of project promotor, as well as that of the installer.

In 2021, the promotor resorted to GoParity as a financing partner for its first project in line with the ESCO (Energy Service Company) model. These contracts’ financial model is based on an initial investment which is conducted by Pleno Energia itself.

Its remuneration consists of the positive balance between the estimated energy savings and the effective measured savings. There is therefore a guarantee of performance for the contracting authority which ensures a decrease in its energy costs when comparing with normal circumstances. In other words, the contract’s budgetary impact is always positive, since the energy service company (ESE) takes on the risk of having to pay any costs exceeding the costs established contractually.
