Geoff Brown, CEO of the the world’s fifth largest battery energy storage system (BESS) integrator Powin Energy, discusses the company’s strategy for the coming years in an interview with Energy-Storage.news.
Renewable energy development company Ameresco has signed a non-exclusive purchasing framework with system integrator Powin Energy, totalling 2.5GWh of Powin’s Stack750 battery energy storage system (BESS) product until 2025.
Powin Energy will purchase lithium iron phosphate (LFP) cells from Chinese company EVE Energy and at the same time is “actively in discussions” to try and source cells from US-based facilities for the future.
Powin Energy has installed battery energy storage systems (BESS) in Israel and Taiwan which, while small by comparison to some of the company’s recent US projects, mark entry into new territories for the Oregon-headquartered system integrator.
Mitsubishi Power Americas and Powin Energy have been appointed to retrofit 640MWh of batteries to solar PV plants in California, while a community energy group in the state has just signed a power purchase agreement for a 100MW solar plant with 150MW / 600MWh of storage.
Powin Energy yesterday officially launched its first high voltage battery storage product, with the Oregon-headquartered battery energy storage solutions provider claiming that 500MWh of customer orders have already been contracted for it.
