Dynapower and Samsung SDI are launching their integrated behind-the-meter ESS offering with an immediate first deployment at the University of Minnesota, and are working with several behind-the-meter ESS developers to deploy their integrated solution across the nation during 2017.
The integrated energy storage offering provides energy storage system vendors, project developers, and utilities with a fully engineered solution that reduces costs for commercial and industrial end users in the deployment of energy storage.
The two companies’ integration experience includes the Electrical Training Institute Net Zero Plus building microgrid and the Duke Energy Notrees 36MW/14MWh ESS project.
Adam M. Knudsen, president of South Burlington, Vermont-based Dynapower says, “As the energy storage industry has rapidly evolved we have seen a clear demand from the market for engineered solutions that are flexible and proven. This is a solution customers can rely upon.”
Fabrice Hudry, the vice president of Energy Storage Solutions at Samsung SDI says. “Samsung SDI is the world leader in Li-ion battery technology specifically for stationary energy storage application, and it is only fitting that we integrate our batteries with Dynapower’s leading inverter technology.”
With over 300 MW of energy storage inverters installed worldwide, Dynapower claims to be “the only inverter manufacturer to offer a complete line of energy storage inverters for utility scale (500 to 2200 kW), behind-the-meter (100 to 250 kW) and solar plus storage (100 to 500 kW) applications.”
Samsung SDI, an affiliate of Korea’s Samsung Group, is focused on the technology for electric vehicles and energy storage systems (ESS) and is recognized as a leader in supplying lithium-ion ESS batteries.
