Chinese inverter solution provider Sungrow has been awarded a contract to deliver its Energy Storage System (ESS) for a solar-plus-storage project in the US.

The 15MW/32MWh project in Massachusetts is operated by US energy firm Stem, which is owned by New York-based private equity firm Syncarpha Capital.

Sungrow Americas president Hank Wang said: “As a technical leader in power conversion, Sungrow offers innovative solar-plus-storage solutions that are future-focused.

“We have already completed prestigious projects in the US and across the globe, connecting renewables to the grid to bring sustainable and reliable power to people.”

Sungrow will offer its fully-integrated ESS solution ST4200KWh-2000. The 40ft container is designed for flexible transport and deployment.

The container includes PCS and Li-ion battery, energy management system, local controller, HVAC and FSS. When complete, the solar-plus-storage project will take part in ISO-New England wholesale markets.
