SolarBOS Installs Utility Scale Storage Battery for Amperex Technology Ltd.

The storage battery has been deployed by a San Francisco Bay Area Fortune 500 company at one of their research and development centers.

LIVERMORE, California (May, 2015) - SolarBOS is pleased to support Amperex Technology Limited (ATL) in the construction of their first utility scale storage battery in North America.


The 500KWH storage battery was installed in a 40' sea container and paired with a 1MW grid interactive inverter. The storage battery has been deployed by a San Francisco Bay Area Fortune 500 company at one of their research and development centers.

Amperex Technology Limited is among the top 4 global suppliers of lithium-ion batteries. ATL lithium batteries are used for consumer electronics, transportation and grid connected energy storage from as small as 5KWH to multi-megawatt hour installations.

"We are proud to support (ATL) with the installation of their utility scale energy storage battery." says Daniel Sherwood, Director of Product Management for SolarBOS. "Our deep experience manufacturing high voltage DC equipment for the solar industry translates easily into the emerging energy storage industry. We are able to help our customers integrate batteries with inverters as well as supply the high voltage DC connection panels and switch gear if required."

Dynapower - MAXIMIZE PRODUCTION AND REVENUES WITH SOLAR PLUS STORAGE

The addition of energy storage to an existing or new utility-scale PV installation allows system owners and operators the opportunity to capture additional revenues. Traditional storage plus solar applications have involved the coupling of independent storage and PV inverters at an AC bus or the use of multi-input hybrid inverters. An alternative approach - coupling energy storage to PV arrays with a DC-to-DC converter - can help maximize production and profits for existing and new utility-scale installations. DC-Coupled Utility-Scale Solar Plus Storage leads to higher round-trip efficiencies and lower cost of integration with existing PV arrays and at the same time, opens up new revenue streams not possible with traditional AC-coupled storage, including clipping recapture and low voltage harvesting, while being eligible for valuable tax incentives.
