The 50 kWe Power Pallet 30 Container System uses our two of our PP30 for a complete biomass power generation solution that converts woody biomass into electricity. It is a compact and fully automated system—from biomass in, to electricity out—delivered at a price point of $2 per watt equipment cost.
The Power Pallet PP30 is our most recent version of our biomass gensets and comes standard with grid-tie electronics for taking advantage of applications such as microgrids, feed-in tariffs, and net energy metering schemes, as well as heat exchangers for heating water for combined heat and power (CHP) applications offering a total system efficiency of up to 80%.
The Power Pallet is distinguished among biomass power generation systems by its compact size, ease of installation, and affordable price. Its integration of CHP capabilities with power generation and woody biomass disposal make it an ideal candidate for applications which find value in heat, electricity, and woody debris disposal. The PP30 is a self-contained biomass unit that requires additional balance-of-system engineering for grid connection or use as an islandable or non-islandable microgrid.
Due to its compact nature and dispatchable source of renewable energy it is a valuable component for hybrid microgrids that use solar and storage as the primary distributed renewable energy source. The addition of this type of technology increases microgrid resilience with on-demand generation.
50kW PP30 Base Container
The BASE version is basically 2 PP30s units housed within a standard 20 foot shipping container envelope. It will provide twice the power and heat capacity of a single Power Pallet PP30 to up to 50 kW and 100 kWth peak capacity.
