Powerfull Solutions was founded in 2019 and provides its customers with energy storage solutions, aimed to bring their systems’ performance to its best, adding significant value to the project. Powerfull Solutions utilizes its capabilities in diverse types of processes, and is able to provide specific products and services as part of a larger system or project, as well as a turn-key solution. The company has strong R&D capabilities both for its own IP development as well as in collaborations with other companies and/or academic institutes. Powerfull Solutions has a game changing product designed for systems performing frequency regulation in the U.S East coast PJM market. The regulation changes in January 2017 turned the dispatching signal (RegD) into a very intense one, accelerating battery degradation. The Powerfull Solutions ESS Optimizer dramatically improves system performance, is easily installed, and brings great value to the project from day 1, regardless of when during the project’s lifetime it is installed.
Ofer Agam-Kohavi is the Founder and CEO of Powerfull Solutions. As head of renewable energy sources grid integration in the southern district of the Israeli utility (IEC), Ofer handled the grid integration of numerous IPPs.
Much like in other global markets, the emergence of renewable energies in Israel introduced unprecedented grid dynamics, reflected by operational, commercial, legal and regulatory challenges.
Throughout this fascinating time, Ofer led diverse task teams, performed valuable researches and developed best practices and procedures to optimize renewable energy sources grid integration.
