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.
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.
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.
