BTM-250 Integrated ESS

by Richard Morin on December 8, 2016


South Burlington, Vermont – Dynapower Company and Samsung SDI announce the introduction of an integrated behind-the-meter energy storage system built on their respective proven technologies. The initial release of the system will be a 250 kW/550 kWh offering, with a 100 kW two-hour system to follow. The integrated energy storage offering provides energy storage system vendors, project developers, and utilities with a fully engineered solution that reduces costs for commercial and industrial end users in the deployment of energy storage. This line of systems will incorporate Dynapower’s recently released Generation 2 MPS product line of behind-the-meter energy storage inverters and Samsung SDI’s recently released E2 battery solution. The two companies share a wealth of field proven integration experience of their technologies across a wide range of ESS projects, sizes and applications including the Electrical Training Institue Net Zero Plus building microgrid and Duke Energy Notrees 36MW/14MWh ESS repower. "We have worked alongside Samsung SDI for a number of years and are excited to take that collaborative effort to the next level with the introduction of an integrated energy storage solution,” said Adam M. Knudsen, President of Dynapower. “As the energy storage industry has rapidly evolved we have seen a clear demand from the market for engineered solutions that are flexible and proven. This is a solution customers can rely upon.” “Together, Dynapower and Samsung SDI are well positioned to help expand market opportunities for our behind-the-meter storage customers by providing fully integrated engineering solutions,” said Fabrice Hudry Vice President Energy Storage Solutions at Samsung SDI “Samsung SDI is the world leader in Li-ion battery technology, and specifically for stationary energy storage application, and it is only fitting that we integrate our batteries with Dynapower’s leading inverter technology.” Dynapower and Samsung SDI are launching their integrated behind-the-meter ESS offering with an immediate first deployment at the University of Minnesota, and are already working with several behind-the-meter ESS developers to deploy their unique integrated solution across the nation throughout 2017.

Worldwide Installations Exceed 250 MW, Reinforcing Industry Leadership Position

SOUTH BURLINGTON, VT--(Dec 9, 2015) -  Dynapower Company, the global leader in energy storage inverters, is closing out 2015 with a record 75-megawatt (MW) backlog of orders for its energy storage inverter family. The company also passed 250 MW of total installed systems, strengthening its position as the industry's leading supplier of bi-directional inverters for energy storage applications. The backlog is due in part to the company's large OEM agreement commercial and utility customers. It's also driven by record U.S. storage deployments this year, which have already exceeded 100 MW as of the third quarter, according to a GTM Research and Energy Storage Association report. Adam Knudsen, Dynapower President, commented: "These record numbers are the result of unprecedented demand across different markets. Behind-the-meter applications in California continue to drive a significant amount of our commercial and industrial projects. The adoption of storage by IPPs and utilities in multiple states has led to larger project work. The market has also recognized that there are design, quality and performance differences among various suppliers, and our inverters excel in all of these areas. "We entered the storage inverter market nearly a decade ago after more than 40 years in the power electronics business, and sales in this space have grown significantly year over year," Knudsen continued. "We now offer a full range of modular bi-directional inverters from 100 kVA to 2.5 MVA across three product lines, with systems for most grid-scale and behind-the-meter applications. Our record backlog and industry-leading installed base reflect the high level of market acceptance we've experienced, and we're grateful to our customers for their support."
