Samsung and Dynapower team up for BTM storage inverters
Dynapower and Samsung SDI have introduced an integrated behind-the-meter energy storage system built on their respective technologies, Energy Storage News reports.
The initial release of the system will be a 250 kW, 550 kWh product with a 100 kW two-hour system to follow.
The first deployment of the Dynapower-Samsung integrated storage system will be the University of Minnesota.
The inverter market will grow fourfold by 2020, according to consulting firm IHS Markit. One of the factors propelling the market is a decline in balance of system component costs, particularly inverters. Building on that trend, battery manufacturer Samsung has teamed up with inverter maker Dynapower.
The companies say that by integrating components of an energy storage system they can provide vendors, developers, and utilities with cost reductions. The partnership will feature Dynapower’s recently released Generation 2 MPS line of inverters and Samsung’s recently released E2 batteries.
“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,” Fabrice Hudry, vice president of energy storage solutions at Samsung SDI, said in a statement.
The companies say they are working with several behind-the-meter energy storage developers to deploy their integrated product across the nation throughout 2017.
