The first industrial energy storage system Energy Storage System, fully developed, designed and manufactured in Ukraine, has been tested in Vinnitsa. The capacity of the storage system will be 1 MW, and its capacity - 1 MW * h. The Mayor of Vinnitsa Sergey Morgunov, as well as the energy company KNESS, which is implementing this project, announced this on his Facebook page.
Vinnytsia City Council issued "KNESS" town planning conditions and restrictions on the construction of an industrial energy storage system.
“Energy Storage System consists of battery clusters obtained as a result of the work of the KNESS RnD Center power electronics laboratory, which lasted for about a year. All intelligent systems of these modules are our own development. They perform the functions of balancing the charge of cells inside the modules, monitoring and managing all processes occurring within the cluster, ”comments Vladimir Golodyuk, head of the power electronics department of the KNESS RnD Center.
“Congratulations to the Ukrainian manufacturer on their own development of an energy storage system. This is an important component for balancing the power system, where the capacities of SPP and WPP are growing. This event once again proves that Ukraine is able to independently create its energy-independent future, developing green energy and the necessary electro-storage systems for this, ”commented Yuriy Shafarenko, Deputy Chairman of the State Energy Efficiency Agency, and stressed the need to adopt a legislative framework to attract investment in systems energy storage.
Recall that on July 12, an engineering company investing in renewable energy KNESS received permits for the construction of a research site for the production of" green "hydrogen in Vinnitsa, using the technology of its own development KNESS RnD Center. For the first time in Ukraine, the models of industrial production of green hydrogen for a wide range of applications will be practically tested at the KNESS hydrogen site. In particular, a new production technology will be used, different from electrolysis, adapted for integration with solar power plants.
Giant batteries are being built all over the world as compensators for surges in the production of "green" energy. As we already reported, Tesla Elon Musk began construction a large battery pack in Texas after the state experienced power supply problems following a blizzard in February this year.
In April, Rinat Akhmetov's DTEK completed the installation of the first in Ukraine industrial energy storage system (SNE) with a capacity of 1 MW and a capacity of 2.25 MW
At the beginning of June, the delegations of Ukraine and the World Bank held negotiations to attract $ 211 million of loans on concessional terms to implement a project to improve the stability of the Ukrainian energy system for integration into the European energy grid. Ukrhydroenergo developed the project /a> installation of industrial-scale energy storage systems at four of the company's hydroelectric power plants.
