Disruptive environmental energy solutions
When you need to convert energy sustainably, store energy effectively or consume energy responsibly, our products provide an innovative approach.
Ideal solutions for cleaner, greener energy
We also involved in applications, such as permanent magnet (PMs) motors for mining and minerals and permanent magnet generators (PMGs) for hydropower plants.
Exergy, a startup from the University of Tokyo, signed a contract with Yaskawa Environmental Energy in January 2019 to develop a frequency converter to match their proprietary-technology-based proton battery, which is used for a next-generation storage system.
US-based SustainX, a pioneer in isothermal compressed air energy storage (ICAES) technology, disrupted the current energy storage industry with its transformational cost competitiveness.
In 2012, The Switch made a significant CHP converter delivery to the Gateway building in White Plains, New York. Commissioning was carried out in early 2013. The installation featured 3 converters in parallel and included an HMI. This was the second 2 MW+ installation for The Switch in the New York area.
Following on the success of the Gateway project, The Switch delivered another CHP converter to the Yonkers Waste Water Treatment plant. This innovative installation utilizes gas from the digester to create electrical power. The converter allows the plants to accurately control power production and meet grid interconnect requirements.
Water Wall Turbine, Canada
WWT selected The Switch’s 500 kW frequency converter for its innovative self-floating power plant to extract potential and kinetic energy from large, fast moving water currents for conversion into electric energy.
Atlantis Resources, UK
Atlantis chose our integrated medium-speed PM generator for its newest AR1500 turbine, one of the world’s highest yield tidal energy generation devices designed for extreme environmental conditions.
Wello Penguin, Finland
The Wello Penguin, a uniquely designed 1,600-ton vessel, utilizes a low-speed PM generator and frequency converter to capture kinetic energy and turn it into usable power while riding the waves. Special features include the vertical installation of the generator axis and the converter’s rocking platform.
One Penn Plaza, USA
The Switch was selected to provide five CHP converters to the One Penn Plaza building in New York City.
