Europe’s Largest Energy Storage Project Comes into Commercial Operation / Utilizing Sungrow Energy Storage System

Europe’s largest energy storage project, the 100MW/100MWh Minety plant with Sungrow’s 1500V energy storage system solutions has been successfully grid-connected, designed for facilitating grid stability and maximizing the utilization of renewable energy.

The UK experienced the most debilitating blackout in nearly a decade in August 2019. The incident exposed the serious lack of frequency regulation of the national grid and demonstrated that the construction of energy storage projects that can regulate the frequency of the grid in a timely fashion should be prioritized. The Minety project, which began at the end of 2019, considerably mitigates the problem.

Sungrow supplied both NCM and LFP battery energy storage system solutions featuring high integration, which minimize the footprint, slash the commissioning duration and significantly reduce the system cost by 5%. The solution well meets the latest UK frequency regulation requirement called dynamic containment – requesting the plant to respond to the power instruction of the grid within 1 second, making the project one of the rare 30% of the UK’s storage plants equipped with this function.

“We are proud of being part of this landmark project, offering solutions with extreme efficiency and safety while in compliance with the stringent UK grid codes,” said James Wu, Vice President of Sungrow.

With a 24-year proven track record, Sungrow keeps unparalleled performance and shipped more than 800MWh of energy storage systems in 2020.
