TOKYO, March 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Sungrow, the global leading inverter solution supplier for renewables, announced it has entered into strategic partnership with a Japanese owner during the PV Expo 2018 held in Tokyo last week and will supply a turnkey energy storage system (ESS) consisting of 23 containers of storage inverters, NCM lithium batteries, and energy management system (EMS) for an approximately 30MWh energy storage project to be installed in Hokkaido, Japan.


The advanced NCM lithium batteries which are provided by Sungrow-Samsung SDI JV feature a high energy density, a long life cycle, and deep charging/discharging functions. The owner highly appreciates Sungrow's system solution, which is designed against the power constrictions in the Japanese power market, by adding ESS to PV plant and achieving 24 hours of continued power yield.

Back in 2017, Sungrow successfully supplied its turnkey ESS to a PV plus energy storage project in Japan. The power plant has been in stable operation since last November.

As a leading ESS solution supplier, Sungrow has supplied to over 600 projects in more than 50 countries and has developed a complete system solution for frequency regulation, demand response, and micro-grids.
