JinkoSolar has announced the completion of a 1.2MWh order for its Energy Storage System with one of the largest power developers in Africa.

The project will improve the electricity consumption of local villages and improve the life quality of the residents. The client is one of the most influential multi-technology companies in West Africa and has cooperated with numerous new energy projects with the World Bank and local government.

With rapid economic growth, the electricity demand in Africa is expected to double by 2030. More and more African countries and energy companies are promoting the development of new energy, and its generation will bring new development opportunities to Africa

JinkoSolar offers different Energy Storage System solutions for different application scenarios, helping to improve the power supply structure in Africa. For some areas with limited access to the grid, JinkoSolar C&I Energy Storage System can effectively solve the problem of local power shortage with high performance and high-security features.

Jinko C&I Energy Storage System is designed for community microgrid and commercial and industrial application. The system carries the full range of standard storage product up to 1MWh per unit standard products and customised solutions to cater for each individual need.

The system integrates battery, PCS, DC/DC, switch cabinet, fire-fighting equipment, air-conditioner, EMS and more. The high integration reduces the complex process of the project design, selection and related installation cost.

The company promotes DC coupling topology to proposes an energy storage solution, which is more efficient, has less solar curtailment and less installation and system design costs. The DC coupling system is easier to manage by EMS than the AC coupling solution, which brings higher stability to the ESS projects.

“Our EMS can greatly manage the energy dispatch from different parts of the system, including the PV side and ESS side and even other energy resources,” states the company.

As the world’s leading PV company, JinkoSolar is committed to providing global customers with a more comprehensive range of new energy solutions by expanding its “PV +” business segment. As an important product in the “PV +” business segment, JinkoSolar Energy Storage System will achieve better electricity management for customers in Africa and around the world.
