Inverter supplier Sungrow has announced a new partnership with Statera Energy, to supply a 362MW/391MWh energy storage project in the UK.

The first phase of the project was grid-connected in Q1, 2022, with the rest expected to come online this year. The project will play into the Capacity Market as well as the Dynamic Containment ancillary service market.

“We have partnered with Sungrow because of its proven track record, the quality and the integrated nature of its product offering,” said Tom Vernon, managing director of Statera Energy Limited.

“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 coming projects in the UK in 2022.”

Flexibility provider Statera has developed over 500MW of battery storage, as well as 150MW of flexible gas generations projects. It currently has a pipeline of 2.5GW of projects, including batteries, thermal generation, pumped storage and hydrogen technologies.

In March 2021, it completed a financing deal with NatWest to support eight new projects in the UK.

Sungrow meanwhile has over 224GW of inverters installed worldwide as of December 2021. In the UK, this includes supplying its 1500V energy storage system solutions for the 100MW Minety battery storage project in southern England, which is currently Europe’s biggest.
