This week’s “Top 5” includes a large PV plus storage project in an Australian mine, ViZn’s collaboration with Princeton power on its new integrated product, AMS partnering with SunEdison, two of AES’ projects being constructed, and Dynapower equipping Tesla’s Powerpack with its inverters.
- « Australia’s “largest solar and battery storage project to date” will be built by German developer Juwi at at the DeGrussa Copper-Gold Mine in Western Australia. 10.6MW of solar and a 6MW battery is to be added to 19MW of existing diesel. »
- « ViZn Energy Systems announced a collaboration with Princeton Power to launch ViZn’s ZACenergy storage system. The new system integrates ViZn’s Z20 zinc-iron redox flow battery with Princeton Power System’s field-proven inverters, grid connects and auxiliary components into a single-unit system. » Its capacity ranges from 320kWh to 960kWh.
- « Advanced Microgrid Solutions (AMS) has partnered with SunEdison to install and finance 50 megawatts of building-sited energy storage under a 10-year capacity contract with Southern California Edison. SunEdison and AMS will jointly do the development, SunEdison will provide construction financing and TerraForm is expected to provide permanent financing. »
- AES began the construction of its storage facilities in the Netherlands (10MW), and in the MISO area (20MW). Both assets will be used to provide ancillary services to the grid
- « Dynapower Company announced that it will be supplying the 250 kW energy storage inverters as an integral part of Tesla’s recently announced Powerpack Commercial battery systems for large commercial and utility customers. »
