Massive energy storage deal for Trina, Pacific Green

Trina Storage and Pacific Green have signed a major agreement for 1500 megawatt-hour (MWh) of integrated energy storage solutions across multiple jurisdictions.

Under the letter of intent announced at the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi, Trina Storage will supply its advanced liquid-cooled Elementa 2 storage systems, power conversion systems and energy management systems to several large-scale energy parks developed by Pacific Green.

The deal takes the strategic collaboration between the two companies to a new level as they harness their expertise to drive innovation in utility-scale renewable technology and applications.

“We are delighted to join with Trina Storage in these projects,” Du Yangfan, General Manager of Pacific Green Technologies Shanghai said. “At Pacific Green, we lead the smart energy transition with next-generation energy storage solutions. To achieve this, we collaborate with the leading clean energy suppliers, such as Trina Storage.”

“We are honored to support Pacific Green once again and power their energy parks with our new generation energy storage systems. This underlines our joint efforts to deliver clean energy and drive energy transitions,” Trina Storage’s Overseas Sales Director of Jack Chen said.

According to Trina, Trina Storage ranked among the top five on BloombergNEF’s 2023 energy storage providers report and its Tier 1 list. Chen said its “bankable” offerings span proprietary cells to fully integrated systems for various uses.

The high-efficiency Elementa 2 liquid-cooled system incorporates smart cooling, upgraded pack design and fire mitigation. Launched globally in February, it uses Trina Storage’s in-house battery cells.

Demand for large-scale energy storage is escalating to firm renewable generation and support grid stability amid the global energy transition to net zero emissions.

The agreement aims to provide more reliable, sustainable energy by combining the companies’ renewable expertise in technology innovation and utility-scale applications.

British-owned energy company Pacific Green is pursuing a massive 12 gigawatt-hour (GWh)  battery energy storage pipeline across Australia, Italy, UK and Poland. In Australia, two major projects are spearheading its efforts – the mammoth 1.5GWh Limestone Coast Energy Park in South Australia and the Portland Energy Park in Victoria.

Strategically located next to the South East Substation interconnector, the Limestone Coast facility will bolster grid stability, act as a backup power source for both states, and enable energy trading between SA and Victoria.
