Photo voltaic plus battery storage shall be one of many key options to fight local weather change. We look ahead to working along with our current and new companions and contribute to world decarbonisation efforts.”
Canadian Photo voltaic stated CSI Power Storage has an power storage system integration pipeline of 11GWh, together with 861MWh underneath long-term service agreements, 1.9GWh underneath development or contracted and a further earlier stage pipeline of 8.2GWh. Nevertheless, its venture growth companies, together with Recurrent Power within the US, have a pipeline of more than 31GWh of battery energy storage projects.
The CSI Power Storage Staff shall be showcasing the brand new storage system at RE+ in Anaheim, US, subsequent week from 19-22 September. Members of the Photo voltaic Media editorial workforce from each Power-Storage.information and PV Tech may even be in attendance.
