Trina Storage, the energy storage division of solar PV manufacturer Trina Solar, has formed a partnership with solar inverter manufacturer Power Electronics to jointly deploy battery storage.

The vertically-integrated Chinese PV company – a member of the ‘Solar Module Super League’ of major manufacturers as coined by our colleagues over at PV Tech – said today that it will deploy over 1GWh of battery energy storage system (BESS) installations by the end of 2023 which are integrated with Spain-headquartered Power Electronics’ PCSK inverters.

The two companies signed a letter of intent (LOI) for the agreement to carry out the deployments jointly at last week’s Intersolar Europe show in Germany.

At the event, Trina Storage was showcasing Elementa, its grid-scale BESS solution and launching it officially to the mainland European market, although it has already been used in a successfully commissioned 50MW BESS project in Cambridgeshire in the UK.

The company said a US launch is coming soon.

Elementa is a fully-integrated and modular solution designed for easy plug and play installation. It features a standardised design equipped with lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery cells and liquid cooling technology. Trina Storage is currently building out 3GWh of annual LFP cell production capacity at facilities in China.

PV Tech has been running an annual PV CellTech Conference since 2016. PV CellTech USA, on 8-9 October 2024 is our second PV CellTech conference dedicated to the U.S. manufacturing sector. The event in 2023 was a sell out success and 2024 will once again gather the key stakeholders from PV manufacturing, equipment/materials, policy-making and strategy, capital equipment investment and all interested downstream channels and third-party entities. The goal is simple: to map out PV manufacturing in the U.S. out to 2030 and beyond.
