Sesame Solar, a Michigan-based energy system developer, said in June that it has successfully produced the world’s first 100% renewable nanogrids.
After five years of development, the launch is one of the breakthrough moments in the evolution of the power business and global energy, as renewable energy is a key target for governments, particularly the EU.
The modular nanogrid is powered by solar panels with two blades and green hydrogen. The Sesame nanogrid is built in the shape of a two-bridge trailer or an ISO standard cargo, with lengths ranging from 3 to 12 meters.
This makes it easy to transport the nanogrid to areas where there is a power outage utilizing ships, cargo planes, trucks, or helicopters. The nanogrid’s capacity allows it to provide power for several weeks.
Electricity generated through Sesame’s nanogrid could be used to power emergency medical equipment, purify water, run communications systems, or charge electric vehicles in areas inaccessible to cars and trucks.
Each grid has solar cells that can charge batteries with a capacity ranging from 3 to 20 kW and 15 to 150 kWh.
Sesame has developed this grid as a cleaner alternative to fossil fuels. Many countries, particularly those in the European Union, share the goal of reducing overall energy use while increasing output of renewable energy sources.
Recently, there has been a substantial amount of progress in the field of electrical work. The grid’s technological, economic, and regulatory foundations were established around a century ago and have been subjected to minor disruptions for the next several decades.
However, the industry is currently undergoing a massive shift.
The electrical business is evolving to create more efficient methods of operating and utilizing electricity.
Given the global warming effect, the depletion of fossil energy sources, and the growing population, there is an urgent need for new methods of creating and utilizing energy sources that reduce CO2 emissions.
The Sesame Solar team, led by Lauren Flanagan, aims to provide the nanogrids as an effective energy recovery solution without causing further environmental damage. One of the first clients of the device was the U.S. Air Force.
