Renewable systems require strong business-case fundamentals to support the proliferation of the systems. While the PV industry has seen massive adoption and plummeting per-watt pricing, the storage market has been comparatively expensive due to the shorter lifespan.
This is no longer true for Green Rhino systems. By developing a custom platform for the Lead-Crystal™ battery, the system can achieve an equivalent price of $0.12 per kWh. A financially-attractive solution is the key to the energy revolution and producing a greener future.
Storage is the next market to explode as inverter and battery technology matures with predictions of 38% CAGR well into 2025 according to a market report by research company Wood Mackenzie. With the market ready for the energy revolution, Green Rhino is prepared to power forward the container industry alongside high-profile partners like Cisco, Intel, IBM, and the Port of Rotterdam.
The transport difficulties with Lithium batteries is an intrinsic problem of the chemistry and thus Lithium remains classified under Dangerous Goods. The high material and moral cost of Cobalt remains a controversial topic of whether Lithium is the “green” battery of the future. Green Rhino exclusively uses Lead-Crystal™ batteries 99% recyclable battery containing no antimony, cadmium, and less acid. This battery is versatile, tough, and has competitive performance like Lithium, but while still being safe to transport.
These features mean the Green Rhino system is the perfect solution for marine, oil & gas, and telecoms industries which require high-quality and safe power systems subject to high ambient temperatures and maintenance-free requirements. The We are 42 smart container has similar requirements which makes the Green Rhino POD system the perfect solution. The hardware platform unlocks the power of the Lead-Crystal™ battery for applications across the globe requiring any voltage, frequency, or power rating.
