Portugal will have the first factory in the world to combine solar panels and batteries

Portugal will have the first factory in the world to combine solar panels and batteries

The new factory of flexible photovoltaic solar panels and high temperature lithium batteries that will have its head in Moura in Alentejo, will also be the first in the world to combine these two technologies.

This factory group Portuguese Lux Optimeyes Energy will be the first in the world to join solar panel technology with lithium batteries, thus seeking to obtain and create new hybrid products for the domestic and international market.

The idea lies in the beginning of the combination of the two technologies and that the productive combination of the two technologies is innovative and that this may be the way of the future. Stressing the company that the solar panel with the battery allows to greatly extend the use of renewables.

The unit will produce flexible photovoltaic solar panels and high temperature lithium batteries, in an initial investment of around five million euros, with community contribution.

This production will not aim at the production of conventional photovoltaic panels, but rather an assembly line in the area of flexible solar, through adapted and special technologies for this purpose. The flexible panel allows applications in multiple locations, is lighter and more efficient, and can come to have several configurations.

In the second production line of this factory will be the production of high temperature lithium batteries of the newest generation adapted to their function and climate in the countries of use.

The products that from this factory may derive are of the most varied use possible, such as being used in the coverage of buses and their stops, in campervans, golf carts, highway noise protection panels, among others.

Congratulations to this initiative and that many more of these initiatives come to Portugal.
