Canadian Solar has a new energy storage solution for utility-scale applications. SolBank is a lithium-iron phosphate (LFP) battery enclosure with up to 2.8 MWh of energy capacity. SolBank is designed with liquid cooling and humidity control, active balancing BMS technologies, and complies with the latest international safety and compliance standards. CSI Energy Storage also offers full commissioning and integration services, turnkey EPC project execution and long-term operational service and capacity maintenance.
CSI Energy Storage currently produces the SolBank at its workshops in Jiangsu Province in China. The current annual battery manufacturing output capacity is 2.5 GWh and is expected to reach 10 GWh by the end of 2023. These workshops include the manufacturing of its own proprietary designed battery modules, packs, and containerization with fully automated, state-of-art production lines and testing facilities.
“We are delighted to launch our proprietary battery storage product, the SolBank, which is one of the best in the market in terms of product safety and cost competitiveness,” said Dr. Shawn Qu, Chairman and CEO of Canadian Solar. Our manufacturing capacity in battery storage will spur the continued growth of our battery storage solutions business, which will in turn enhance the synergies with our battery storage project development business. Solar plus battery storage will be one of the key solutions to combat climate change. We look forward to working together with our existing and new partners and contribute to global decarbonization efforts.”
