Sungrow to supply Israel’s first DC-coupled liquid cooled energy storage project

By Sungrow

Sungrow has announced the signing of a 66 MW/253 MWh energy storage contract with the Doral Group, an Israel-based renewable energy and environmental infrastructure developer. This will be Israel’s first DC-coupled liquid cooled energy storage project and will further enhance the stability and reliability of the country’s grid.

With the Israeli government committed to a goal of producing 30% of its electricity from renewables by 2030, solar-plus-storage solutions are becoming a key future-proof and sustainable trend to ensure the reliability of the power grid. Under the contract, Sungrow will supply its latest DC-coupled liquid cooled storage system for Doral Energy’s solar-plus-storage projects, significantly reducing capital and operating costs.

Yaki Noyman, Doral Energy CEO, commented, “With Sungrow’s solution we finalized our procurement needs for PV + Storage Tender number 1 and, in working with Sungrow, also took the first step in establishing a relationship with key suppliers to bolster our global storage effort.”

Roni Brandes, Doral’s Head of Storage, Projects and Procurement, added, “Sungrow’s DC-coupled design and liquid cooled technology present competitive solutions for PV plus Storage tenders, making Doral’s hybrid plants a landmark project throughout the region. We really appreciate the dedication and expertise of Sungrow in offering a technological solution which enables lower initial investment while simultaneously maximizing potential for project stakeholders.”

“We’re thrilled to partner with Doral Energy to offer the DC-coupled liquid cooled ESS solution,” continued Tzvi Ben David, General Manager of Sungrow Israel. “We signed a 430 MWh contract with Enlight Energy in late 2021 and followed that with a 64 MWh contract with Afcon for Dalia Power Energies in March. Through the addition of this 253 MWh agreement, Sungrow is now recognised as one of the key energy storage solution suppliers in Israel, making a significant contribution to the country’s ability to deliver on its net-zero carbon ambitions.”
