Born Positiu provides energy solutions to a wide range of applications, from drones to cities.
We supply a wide range of generators in the range from 500W to 500kW, oriented to hybrid and renewable facilities both to support grid or autonomous microgrids.
The smallest genset has a Max rating of 650W and matched with the appropriate batteries can deliver in excess of 6600W, making the perfect fit for advanced DRONES and autonomous systems (total weight < 4.5kg)

The challenge

Energy is not obiquous and needs transportation. Grid-tied solutions do not offer enough flexibility and sometimes are complex to manage, especially when specific connections have to be made.
By using autonomous microgrids, Born Positiu aims to meet the requirements of movable and portable equipment, providing energy in the most affordable, more sustainable and reliable manner.
In our portfolio, we currently work on generators from 500W to 500kW, covering the widest spectrum of possibilities: drones, antennas, CPD and flash events.
Top of the range portable gensets have a rating of 5.5kW and a maximum load of 13kVA weighing <140kg.
The largest genset to be integrated as a SAI support (containerized) is rated at 550kW and is perfectly suitable for intermittent and backup power in large microgrids as islands, supplementing wind and solar power.

The solution

The concept of hybrid architecture combined with Lithium batteries is derived from the SMART-1 ESA mission.
It was a full-electric mission, performing all the transfer manoeuvres from the Earth Orbit to crashing into the moon in pure electric propulsion.
The space system included more redundancies than our space derived solution, but is based in the same principles, replacing Eclipses by night hours in the energy management algorithms, which can be tailored according to the customer needs (minimum cost, maximum reliability, maximum efficiency, etc)
Born Positiu has gained through the project vast experience and knowledge in high power equipment, batteries (all chemistries) and capacitors (both ELDC and li-based).
We are willing to hear from your energy challenges, let's fix it !
