Panasonic India launches new energy storage solution for telecom towers
March 14, 2018
Panasonic India, the local arm of Japanese electronics corporation Panasonic, announced it has introduced its new line of energy storage solutions targeting the telecom tower market at industry event ELECRAMA 2018. The newly launched compact business power solution is called CBPS 8000.
The company said the product will address challenges faced by telecom towers located across geographies. The product's remote configuration and diagnostic feature allow identifying faults remotely, the company said in a statement.
The demand for lithium-ion battery-based systems comes mainly from the push by Indian telecom service operators, for environmentally friendly and sustainable solutions to power telecom towers and other services in the country. With a market share of 35 per cent in the category, currently almost 40,000 telecom towers run on Panasonic Batteries.
“With the increase in data consumption and various government led initiatives such as Digital India and Smart cities, we are experiencing an exponential growth in the nation’s telecom segment. This has led to an increase in telecom towers and sustainable renewable back up options powered by batteries,” said Atul Arya, Head-Energy Systems, Panasonic India.
Apart from introducing new storage solutions for its existing business line-up, Panasonic India is further looking to offer energy storage solutions for industries such as data centres, commercial and industrial sector and rural micro-grids.
