The innovative Sungrow system is definitely one of the highlights of this exciting venture, which will provide up to 230 MWh of energy storage. The liquid-cooled ESS PowerTitan 2.0 system will be deployed for the first time in Germany, and the system seamlessly integrates a 2.5 MW power conversion system (PCS) and a 5 MWh battery in a single 20-foot container. The pioneering technology not only increases efficiency and safety, but also significantly reduces the costs of both capital expenditure (CAPEX) and operational expenditure (OPEX).

The development of ESS projects in Europe is progressing at a rapid pace. According to S&P Global Commodity Insights, more than 140 GW is expected to be installed between 2024 and 2030. Germany has committed to switching to renewable energy sources so that 80% of energy production comes from renewable sources by 2030. ESS projects are expected to play a key role in supporting this goal, ensuring more efficient use of renewable energy sources and grid stability.

“This project represents another significant milestone for Sungrow as we continue to deliver cutting-edge energy solutions,” noted Mr. Tzvi Ben David, Sungrow Country Manager. Our long-term partnership with Nofar Energy underlines our commitment to developing clean and reliable energy storage solutions. The synergy of cooperation with our colleagues in Europe not only strengthens our support network, but also offers solid solutions for international projects such as the one in Stendal, Germany.

“We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Sungrow and express our sincerest appreciation to the Sungrow team for their dedicated efforts to facilitate this partnership. This cooperation means a significant expansion of our company’s supplier network, especially in the BESS area.

This significant acquisition transaction highlights our continued growth trajectory, as evidenced by our recent reports. Over the past three years, we have successfully initiated and commissioned over 1 GW of solar projects in six different countries, generating impressive returns. Moreover, Nofar is a significant player in the electricity storage sector, with 1.1 GWh in operation and under construction and a total storage portfolio of 7.5 GWh.

As we move forward, we remain committed to maintaining our accelerated growth rate while leveraging our BESS expertise to generate outsized profits,” noted Nofar Energy CEO Ofer Yannay.

The PowerTitan ESS series has achieved impressive deliveries in 2023, exceeding 10.5 GWh worldwide. The recent addition of PowerTitan 2.0 does not replace PowerTitan 1.0, but rather offers an additional solution, demonstrating Sungrow’s commitment to innovation across technologies. This increases the diversity and adaptability of our energy storage systems, ensuring that they meet the diverse needs of different scenarios.
