The 116.5MW/230MWh system is being developed by Israel-based developer Nofar Energy. While a targeted commercial operation date (COD) was not given, the signing of a BESS supply deal between the two companies indicates construction is likely to begin soon.

It is similar in size to a 238MWh project on which BESS technology and developer-operator company Eco Stor started construction in Schleswig-Holstein recently, one of several which has recently been claimed as the largest in Germany.

Germany has a huge solar PV deployment target of 215GW by 2030 which is prompting a concurrent upsurge in BESS deployments, with 62GW/109GWh of cumulative installs forecast by BloombergNEF.

Sungrow is among the largest BESS providers globally and is making a big push into continental Europe’s burgeoning grid-scale market, including Spain, as detailed by recently.

Nofar Energy meanwhile has deployed BESS projects on home turf and, while it entered the UK market with a large-scale project in 2021, it has since formed a joint venture entity Atlantic Green for that country, which recently energised its first BESS.’ publisher Solar Media will host the 2nd Energy Storage Summit Asia, 9-10 July 2024 in Singapore. The event will help give clarity on this nascent, yet quickly growing market, bringing together a community of credible independent generators, policymakers, banks, funds, off-takers and technology providers.
