Sungrow Bags Supply Contract with Smart Power for a 30MW/30MWh Energy Storage Project in Germany

Sungrow, the global leading inverter solution supplier for renewables, signed a contract with general contractor and developer company Smart Power for the supply of energy storage systems for a 30MW/30MWh project in Germany. The project demonstrates another significant milestone that Sungrow made for European energy storage markets in the wake of the supply for the largest unsubsidized solar-plus-storage project in the UK.

The project consists of three units with a capacity of 10MW/10MWh each. The technical challenges involved with a rigid and complex grid code in Germany were successfully met by Sungrow’s highly integrated energy storage system operating in accordance with local demands. The system, with an advanced Power Control System (PCS) and a robust lithium battery features a compact and resilient design ensuring the stability of the grid while at the same time enhancing the overall project benefits through frequency regulation and energy shifting.

The renowned Germany-based renewable energy company, Smart Power acts as a consortium involved in the project. “We started the partnership with Sungrow two years ago and were convinced by its professionalism and flexibility in face of diverse requirements. We value Sungrow’s proven 22-year track record in the energy storage industry and look forward to collaborating on more ventures in the near future,” said Ulrich Bürger, CTO of Smart Power.

“We are delighted to join hands again with Smart Power to supply cutting-edge energy storage solutions. This project represents a continued commitment for international energy storage partners and customers,” said James Wu, Vice President of Sungrow PV & Energy Storage Division.

Sungrow is dedicated to becoming a key contributor in the energy storage market as the marketplace sets to proliferate in the years to come. “With a comprehensive product portfolio, an established service team and particular focus on technical innovation, Sungrow holds a standout performance in the energy storage sector with 720 applications installed worldwide by the end of 2018,” Wu added.
