Sungrow has announced that it is to partner with Statera Energy, an independent power producer and market leader in the provision of flexibility to the UK grid, on a 362 MW/391 MWh energy storage project. The first phase of the project was grid-connected in Q1 2022, with the remaining elements to also be brought online during this year.
Statera will adopt Sungrow’s ST3727kWh-3450UD-MV high-efficiency turnkey energy storage system solution to develop subsidy-free storage capable of discharging power at times of peak demand or under-production in multiple suburbs across the UK.
The project will help the UK meet its capacity market objective of achieving long-term security of supply and contribute to offsetting the risk of its increasing reliance on wind generation by strengthening the National Grid’s Dynamic Containment frequency response service.
“We have partnered with Sungrow because of its proven track record, the quality and the integrated nature of its product offering. Statera believes that battery storage will play a pivotal role in facilitating the transition to low carbon generation and will continue to work with Sungrow on other projects in the UK in 2022,” commented Tom Vernon, Statera’s Managing Director.
