It secured 13.3% of the total energy storage projects awarded.

Canadian Solar won the tender for three battery energy storage systems with a total capacity of 193 megawatts (MW) under Japan’s first long-term decarbonisation power source auction.

In a statement, Canadian Solar said the projects will operate for over a 20-year period in exchange for capacity reserve payments to offset fixed storage system costs.
