Huanghe Hydropower Development has grid connected a 2.2 GW solar PV park in China with 202.86 MW/202.86 MWh energy storage capacity which PV inverter supplier Sungrow says is the largest solar & storage project in the country.
Sungrow has supplied its flexibly built microgrid system with energy storage for this project that comes with an embedded sub-array energy management function to control the output of solar and storage, and also it was able to supply electricity during the early construction period. The inverter company also added that this feature made it one of the fastest completed renewable energy projects since construction was completed within 4 months.
The massive project facilitates transfer of power from western China to the eastern part, which is densely populated, through a 800kV ultra-high voltage power line it is connected to. This line, Sungrow said, maximizes renewable energy consumption.
“The rising demand for energy and the push towards low-carbon energy sources leads to the rapid growth of PV parks across the globe,” stated Sungrow. “The marketplace sees a prosperous future of solar-plus-storage as it can cope with the randomness and intermittence of renewable energy, and contributes to the global objective of a carbon-neutral world.”
