On August 30th, 2016, a large-scale Battery Energy Storage System (1st Phase: 1.5MW/12MWh) which was designed and constructed by Narada Power for a Chinese silicon industry company has successfully been put into service. It is the first commercialized Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) in China.
In this project, Narada has been acted as an EPC to provide overall design, procurement, construction and system integration service, and the project is finally put into service after 8 months construction and commissioning. Narada has also been engaged to provide a series of services including electricity consumption management, operation and maintenance afterwards. The completion of this project marked that Narada has the leading position in commercialization of energy storage power station, especially in Battery Energy Storage System (BESS).

The Energy Storage System (ESS) is one of the key technologies applies to Smart Grid, Distributed Generation, Renewable Energy Integration, Micro-grid, as well as development of Electric Vehicles. In large-scale renewable power generation, ESS is applied to peak-shaving to smooth the variable and intermittent power output; In the side of “behind-the-meter”, ESS can be used to improve reliability of electricity provision by shifting peak demand to off-peak period, which has changed the mode of traditional power system, and it has efficiently decreased the peak capacity of generators and increased the utilization of generators; In the side of Transmission and Distribution lines, ESS has largely improved the acceptance ability of renewables integration, and it has facilitated the renewables development and utilization intensively.
Being the leader in Energy Storage industry, Narada has made a quantum leap in Lithium Ion technology, Advanced Lead Carbon technology, BESS solution innovation and marketing development. Narada products and solutions have been widely applied to demonstration and commercialized projects in both domestic and oversea markets, and their reliability and economic feasibility have been fully verified.
By the end of 2016, Narada has already completed and contracted BESS for over 800MWh totally, and mainly applying to peak-shaving for enterprise application, frequency regulation for utility-scale, as well as renewable energy integration. Projects are deployed in many different markets, i.e. China, India, Canada, Singapore, Indonesia, Pakistan, etc.
Besides of the first commercialized BESS mentioned above, Narada is now working on the largest BESS for industrial park in China, with total 15MW/120MWh installation capacity, that helps to save around 32.4 million RMB annually in power consumption for the industrial park. On the other hand, Narada also provides storage system of frequency regulation for both solar farm in Canada and Indian national grid.
In the future, on the basis of continuous reduction of cost per kWh, Narada will keep carrying forward the novel business model “Investment + Operation” in BESS commercialization, and Narada will contribute to sustainable development of energy for the whole world by continuous innovation, technology improvement, platform construction for Energy Internet, and commercialization of smart energy.
