The first commercialized energy storage system (ESS) in China, designed and constructed by international energy company Narada Power Source Co., Ltd., has been completed and successfully put into service.
Narada has acted as an EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) to provide overall design, procurement, construction and system integration service in the large-scale ESS project, with 1st Phase total capacity at 1.5 megawatts (MW)/12 megawatt-hours (MWh). The company has also been engaged to provide a series of services including electricity consumption management, operation and maintenance afterwards.
ESS is one of the key technologies applied to smart grid, distributed generation, renewable energy integration, micro-grid, as well as in the development of electric vehicles (EV). It is also applied to generation, transmission and distribution (T&D) and “behind-the-meter” sides to provide services such as peak-shaving, frequency control, electricity supply reliability improvement, etc.
Especially, ESS has largely improved the acceptance ability of renewables integration, and it has facilitated renewables development and utilization intensively.
Narada has also made a quantum leap in Lithium Ion technology, Lead Carbon technology, ESS solution innovation and marketing development. By the end of 2016, Narada has already completed and contracted ESS for over 800MWh, and mainly applied to peak-shaving, frequency regulation, and renewable energy integration.
Projects are deployed all over world, such as China, India, Canada, Singapore, Indonesia, Pakistan, etc.
Besides the first commercialized ESS, Narada is now working on the largest ESS for industrial park in China as well, with total capacity 15MW/120MWh. Meanwhile, Narada also provides ESS for frequency regulation for both solar farm in Canada and Indian national grid.
