Worldwide installations exceed 250 MW, reinforcing industry leadership position
South Burlington, Vermont - December 9, 2015 - Dynapower Company, the global leader in energy storage inverters, is closing out 2015 with a record 75-megawatt (MW) backlog of orders for its energy storage inverter family. The company also passed 250 MW of total installed systems, strengthening its position as the industry's leading supplier of bi-directional inverters for energy storage applications.
The backlog is due in part to the company's agreement with Tesla, under which Dynapower supplies 250 kW inverters as part of Tesla's Powerpack Commercial battery system for large commercial and utility customers. It's also driven by record U.S. storage deployments this year, which have already exceeded 100 MW as of the third quarter, according to a GTM Research and Energy Storage Association report.
Adam Knudsen, Dynapower President, commented: "These record numbers are the result of unprecedented demand across different markets. Behind-the-meter applications in California continue to drive a significant amount of our commercial and industrial projects. The adoption of storage by IPPs and utilities in multiple states has led to larger project work. The market has also recognized that there are design, quality and performance differences among various suppliers, and our inverters excel in all of these areas.
"We entered the storage inverter market nearly a decade ago after more than 40 years in the power electronics business, and sales in this space have grown significantly year over year," Knudsen continued. "We now offer a full range of modular bi-directional inverters from 100 kVA to 2.5 MVA across three product lines, with systems for most grid-scale and behind-the-meter applications. Our record backlog and industry-leading installed base reflect the high level of market acceptance we've experienced, and we're grateful to our customers for their support."
