In 1995, our principal engineer and CEO identified that battery technology was key to delivering a renewable energy future. It was clear to him that these systems needed to be efficient, safe, and long-lasting but most importantly, they would need to utilize elements that enhance the Earth rather than deplete it.
After 10 years of Australian research and development, Omnexa conceived PowerCap®, a Hybrid Supercapacitor energy storage technology. Omnexa then applied it to both stationary (Grid support services, Commercial, industrial, residential, rural and mining) and mobile (Electric Vehicles, Electric Boats, Rocket Propulsion etc.) applications.
Our team of Post-Doctorate Researchers and RPEQ engineers developed an integrated stationary system that can maximise long-term energy bill saving from a residential scale right through to large grid forming Micro-Grid applications.
Having successfully installed over 23.6MW of renewable systems (wind, solar and geothermal), the Omnexa team is proud to introduce the combined commercial and residential energy generation (Solar or Wind) and Powercap® energy storage technology. Today, PowerCap® technology is helping Australian’s secure clean, affordable and safe energy 24/7.
The surest way to achieve environmental, economic, and social sovereignty is through clean, decentralized energy practices.
In the current climate, access to clean, affordable, and on-demand energy is a scarce resource.
As electricity prices are consistently rising and grid voltage remains unbalanced, challenges such as power surges and peak tariff fees are only set to worsen.
If we collectively unshackle our energy production methods from fossil fuels, we can protect our environment and stabilize the grid simultaneously.
PowerCap® technology uses graphene-based electrostatic architecture to ensure that this common goal is achieved.
Graphene is a single layer of carbon atoms, tightly bound in a hexagonal honeycomb lattice.
Discovered in 2004, this ‘wonder’ compound conducts heat and electricity more efficiently than copper and silver due to its interconnected surface area.
Being the thinnest and strongest compound known, Graphene weighs just 0.77 milligrams per square metre and is 200 times stronger than steel.
Unlike other battery systems, the PowerCap® Graphene Hybrid Supercapacitor can safely store electrons for up to 3 months with increased efficiency and overall lifespan.
When considering whether to add energy storage to your home, you’ll probably find yourself asking, ‘What size battery system should I install?’ The answer is fairly straightforward and ultimately comes down to your energy usage habits…
We’re different from other energy storage providers because of our commitment to sourcing natural elements from the Earth. Commonly used battery agents such as Lithium-ion or Lead Acid for example are mined and are toxic to our environment if not properly disposed of.
By joining our body of Authorised PowerCap® installers, your solar or electrical business can become a complete energy service provider to better support your clientele and the Earth. Omnexa’s array of clean energy training courses make improving your personal or employee’s skill base easy! Additionally, our team of RPEQ engineers are available for electrical support and or troubleshooting for complex electrical configurations such as off-grid and two-phase power supply.
The AEMC has just released new rules to allow power companies to charge an Australian Solar Export Tax. This means that Australians currently benefitting from solar feed-in-tariffs will soon be billed to send power back to the grid. This change has left many Australian residents asking the question, how can I avoid paying the Australian Solar export tax? Omnexa has the perfect solution – PowerCap® energy storage technology.
Ever wondered about the difference between Graphene and Lithium-Ion? As the energy storage market grows to meet consumer demand, Graphene and Lithium-Ion compounds are being compared to determine a user’s ROI and embedded environmental impact. The main areas of consideration when comparing home batteries are Cycle Life, Energy Density and Recyclability.
Today, almost 1 in 5 Australian households are fitted with solar panels making maximising solar efficiency a top priority for many. Below are some simple tips to make the most of your solar and or home energy storage system…
