Sungrow, Enlight ink deal for 430 MWh ESS in Israel

The ESS agreement is the largest signed to date in the country.

Energy storage solution provider Sungrow and Enlight Renewable Energy signed a supply agreement for a 430 megawatt-hour (MWh) of liquid cooled energy storage system (ESS), the largest ESS agreement signed in Israel as to date.

In a press release, Sungrow will supply Enlight its four-hour liquid cooled ESS which will be contacted in two stages—230MWh for stage 1 and a locked 200MWh battery for stage 2.

The supply agreement will boost Israel’s energy transition, they said. They noted that the Israeli government plans to generate 20% of its electricity via renewables by 2030, with solar photovoltaic system (PV) leading the renewables electricity share at 26% in 2030 or 12 to 15 gigawatts installation. 

However, they noted that to reach high percentage usage, the country plans to develop an “advanced solar-plus-storage system” to ensure stability and reliability of the electricity grid.

Enlight and Sungrow the battery rack of the ESS can be fully charged and discharged as it uses direct current (DC)-to-DC converter. 

Combing with the solar system, the highly integrated ESS can be widely used in multiple applications, including energy shifting, ancillary service, like ramp rate control, reactive power provision and more,” the statement read, adding that it features an anti-leakage design and aerosol fire-fighting system.

The two will collaborate to assess the role of green hydrogen in India’s energy transition.
This was met by renewables as well as coal, and gas generation.
It forms part of a 470MW battery project.          
About 120GW of new solar and wind capacity is expected in 2022.  
The agreement includes exploration of offshore wind projects.
The growth rate stabilises following an 8% increase in 2021.
This is a 10-fold increase from the Philippines grid-connected solar capacity.
32 nuclear reactors under construction are expected to bring 30GW in electricity per year.
Without banking power, the business model of solar power becomes unviable.
It is ideal for India because of its geographical location and the socio-economic opportunities it will offer, IEEFA Contributor Charles Worringham argues.
It will look into the development of a 1.2GW solar capacity in Indonesia.
The joint venture will operate under the brand Solar Radiance.
This is to support the increasing demand, according to Wood Mackenzie.
The joint venture is expected to start operations in the first half of 2022.
The product will allow coverage of consequential loss due to damages on property during PV installation.
