Sungrow and Enlight to deploy 430MW of energy storage in Israel

Sungrow Israel

Sungrow, the global leading clean technology company, announced this Monday it entered into an agreement with the Israeli clean energy company Enlight, to deploy up to 430 megawatt-hours of energy storage capacity. This project will be one of the biggest in the country.

Firstly, under the agreement, Sungrow will supply Enlight with 430 MWh of its flagship liquid-cooled energy storage system (ESS). As outlined above, the contract is the largest ESS agreement signed to date in Israel. Consequently, it will boost the country’s energy transition.

Moreover, the contract comes just months after the Israeli government introduced its goal of generating 30% of its electricity from renewables by 2030. This would include the installation of 12 to 15 gigawatts of new solar capacity. In fact, currently, Israel is aiming to develop an advanced solar-plus-storage system to ensure a stable and reliable electricity grid.

As a result, Sungrow will deploy its technology in a combination of 230 MWh for stage 1; and a locked 200 MWh battery for stage 2, which enables profitability, flexibility, and safety.

In addition, the capital costs for the project will be low; as a result of the company’s pre-assembly, easy on-site installation; and a more effective cell working environment which slows capacity loss substantially.

Furthermore, the system is optimized in safety performance because of its standout anti-leakage design and an integrated aerosol firefighting system. Combing with the solar system, the highly integrated ESS can work with multiple applications, including energy shifting, ancillary service, like ramp rate control, reactive power provision, and more.

Gilad Yavetz, CEO of Enlight Renewable Energy, said about the matter. “We believe that the combination of Sungrow’s product leadership and CATL’s cell technology will provide us with the superior solution we need for our advanced solar plus battery projects, driving best-in-class plant performance.”

Finally, James Wu, Vice President of Sungrow also commented. “The advanced liquid-cooled ESS technologies we offer make it easier for our customers to turn more solar energy into assets. Israel is the key market for Sungrow to expand the global business. The booming of renewable energy entails a broader trajectory for energy storage development.”
