The Tibet-Shuanghu County Microgrid – Battery Energy Storage System is a 7,000kW energy storage project located in Shuanghu County, Tibet Autonomous Region, China.
The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was commissioned in 2016.
The key applications of the project are frequency regulation, voltage control and grid support services.
Power Construction Corporation of China, Sungrow Power Supply and Sungrow-Samsung SDI Energy Storage Power Supply have delivered the battery energy storage project.
The Shuanghu project is a microgrid to electrify a rural community of some 14,000 people who live at an elevation of some 5,000 metres above sea level. Sungrow provided 20MW of inverters, 13MW for solar PV and 7MW for energy storage. The system can be remotely monitored and Sungrow claims it can be successfully run by an off-site team.
