The LCEC Lebanon Solar PV Park 1 – Battery Energy Storage System is a 70,000kW energy storage project located in Lebanon. The rated storage capacity of the project is 70,000kWh.

The project was announced in 2018 and will be commissioned in 2020.

Description

The key applications of the project are renewables capacity firming and renewables energy time shift.

Additional information

The energy storage system is a part of Lebanon Center for Energy Conservation’s expression of interest for the tender involving the construction of 300 MW of solar PV plants combined with storage systems. In each project, the minimum power capacity of one given Solar PV farm is 70 MW and the maximum power capacity is 100 MW with Battery Energy Storage of minimum of 70 MW power with a minimum of 70 MWh of storage capacity.

Methodology

All publicly-announced energy storage projects included in this analysis are drawn from GlobalData ’s Power IC. The information regarding the projects are sourced through secondary information sources such as country specific power players, company news and reports, statistical organisations, regulatory body, government planning reports and their publications and is further validated through primary from various stakeholders such as power utility companies, consultants, energy associations of respective countries, government bodies and professionals from leading players in the power sector.
