About
The European market for utility-scale storage systems is becoming increasingly more attractive for investors and project developers. Grid operators are not just allowing batteries to participate in frequency service markets, but in the UK, they have also come up with a new grid stability product specifically designed with batteries in mind. That means a bigger addressable market for storage project developers, but it also means that higher technical requirements must be fulfilled.

So-called Dynamic Containment is such a new service that was introduced after a sudden failure of a gas-power plant caused a power outage in the UK. The culprit was a fast frequency deviation in a low-inertia environment. A problem that lingers over the entire continent.

Dynamic Containment is a grid stability product that batteries can offer, to counter the lack of inertia. Delivering this service is technically very demanding and lots of testing and validation must go into a project before commissioning. This is why Sungrow says that its customers can get access to its in-house crew of technicians who will support the customers during the project planning and commissioning stages.

With the help of a team that is well familiar with the technology that is being deployed in the field and the regulatory requirements that apply, Sungrow says it can minimize the project’s lead times and commissioning steps.

In this pv magazine Webinar, Sungrow’s Head of Technical ESS, James Li will be joining us to discuss the advantages of supplying technology and technical consultancy both from one company. We will look at the grid study Sungrow has carried out to prepare its customers to deliver Dynamic Containment and discuss whether such support will be needed for other grid stability products, as well.

Questions can be submitted beforehand or during the webinar through a chat window. Marian Willuhn, Editor at pv magazine, will be the moderator of this webinar.

Registration for this pv magazine Webinar is free of charge.
