Younicos partners with Panasonic Corp. to design and build a solar-plus-storage system at Peña Station NEXT in Denver, Colorado, which includes the operations hub for Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Company and Panasonic CityNOW.

The solar-plus-storage system will make use of multiple Younicos Y.Cubes, the innovative “storage-in-a-box” solution for C&I applications from the German-American industry pioneer.

Younicos in a statement said four Y.Cubes will be installed at the Panasonic facility in Denver, Colorado under the project. The 1 MW storage resource will be connected to the Xcel Energy power grid and offer frequency regulation, solar grid integration through ramp control, grid peak shaving, energy arbitrage, and backup power.

This multi-mode operating capability will allow Panasonic, Xcel Energy, and other microgrid stakeholders to derive maximum benefits from Xcel Energy’s 1.6 MW solar PV system situated on nearby parking structure, along with 259 kW of PV on the building’s rooftop.

 “The solar-plus-storage microgrid is an anchor, not just of Panasonic’s new Denver operations hub, but also for the broader Peña Station NEXT development, which is a 400-acre, smart and sustainable transit-oriented development in Denver,” said Jamie Evans, managing director of the Energy Solutions Group at Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Company. “We are excited to partner with Younicos and Xcel Energy to bring this innovative project to life.”

Stephen Prince, Younicos CEO said  “We’re very pleased to work with Panasonic on this project, which highlights the advantages of our plug-and-play Y.Cube system for commercial and industrial use cases,” he added “Like Younicos, Panasonic is a technology leader with a strong focus on the benefits of solar-plus-storage for different applications. They and the local grid will benefit enormously from this resource.”
