Ayesa has provided Back-Office services in Formula 'E' since 2016 when it began to collaborate in the analysis of production and consumption data, and using the foregoing as a basis, then defines the design criteria of the micro-grid of each circuit, to meet the energy requirements own of a Grand Prix of Formula E, including highly demanding tasks such as the vehicles' recharge. Similarly, Ayesa conducts feasibility studies into photovoltaic systems to meet the demands of less critical consumers.
Smart meters, installed at strategic points in the Grand Prix, allow real-time consumption of the energy consumption of Formula E circuits. These are then analysed and characterised according to the different types of consumers.
Thanks to advanced glycerine generators, battery sets and inverters, solar panels installed in the circuits and, if necessary, supported by diesel generators or specific connections to the local power grid, the power supply is performed.
A Formula E car can reach a maximum power of 200 kW, with 0 CO2 emissions per 100 kilometres raced, compared to the 20 kg emitted by a car that runs on fossil fuels.
Each Formula E car is composed of 200 kg of lithium cells, enough to charge 4,000 mobiles. The charging time is only 45 minutes, compared to the approximately 330 minutes of a standard electric car.
