Press Release Generating and storing energy and heat from the sun and from gas KYOCERA presents its new, highly-efficient Energy Management System at the Intersolar 2012 Kyoto / Neuss, 28 March 2012 – Owing to the lower feed-in tariffs, private solar energy system operators benefit increasingly less from feeding their self-generated power from photovoltaic plants into the national power grid. Current draft laws suggest further cuts, thereby presenting the industry with new challenges. Intelligent solutions for a more effective use of energy are in demand – which operate regardless of direct sunlight. At the Intersolar in Munich (13.-15.06.2012, Stand: A3.240), the technology group and solar energy pioneer, Kyocera, is exhibiting a concept that enables the generation and storage of solar energy and heat. The new "All-in-One"- concept by Kyocera combines photovoltaics with a lithium-ion battery, a fuel cell and an intelligent Energy Management System (EMS). Contact:
The Kyocera innovation relies on the combination of three essential

The product life of the lithium-ion battery is about five times as high
as conventional lead-acid batteries and has a capacity of 7.1 kWh.
The storage medium weighs around 200 kilograms and has a size
of 120x90x35cm. Electric power and heat are produced from natural
gas via the installed fuel cell. The energy is also stored in the
lithium-ion battery, whereas the heat is directly used for the
preparation of hot water and heating support.
Kyocera developed the fuel cell in cooperation with the companies
Osaka Gas, Aisin, Chofu and Toyota. The Solid Oxide Fuel Cell
System (SOFC-System) comprises a hot water supply unit and
heating unit and achieves an efficiency of 46.5%1 – the highest in
the world2 for a fuel cell for small-scale applications. The overall
energy efficiency of the system is 90%.1 This is achieved by the use
of ceramic in the energy-producing fuel cell stack. Thereby, a high
operating temperature of 700 - 750 °C is reached in the cell; this
heat-energy can be efficiently used to convert the process gas into

and the national power grid – individually, in accordance with the
generation of power and the power demand of the household. That
means: in times of peak consumption, the stored solar power is
used before power from the national power grid is used. In addition,

Headquartered in Kyoto, Japan, Kyocera Corporation is one of the world's leading manufacturers of fine ceramic components for the technology industry. The strategically important divisions in the Kyocera Group, which is comprised of 208 subsidiaries (as of March 31, 2011), are information and communications technologies, products which increase quality of life, and environmentally friendly products. The technology group is also one of the largest producers of solar energy systems worldwide.
With a global workforce of about 66.000 employees, Kyocera posted net sales of approximately €10.74 billion in fiscal year 2010/2011. The products marketed by the company in Europe include laser printers, digital copying systems, microelectronic components, fineceramic products and complete solar power systems. The Kyocera Group has two independent companies in the Federal Republic of Germany: Kyocera Fineceramics GmbH in Neuss and Esslingen and Kyocera Mita Deutschland GmbH in Meerbusch.
The company also takes an active interest in cultural affairs. The Kyoto Prize, a prominent
international award, is presented each year by the Inamori Foundation — established by Kyocera founder Dr. Kazuo Inamori — to individuals and groups worldwide who have contributed significantly to the scientific, cultural, and spiritual betterment of humankind
(converted at present €500.000 per prize category).
