June 7 (Renewables Now) - Sungrow Power Supply Co Ltd (SHE:300274) has signed deals to supply utility-scale micro-grid battery energy storage systems (BESS) with a total capacity of 14 MW/24.9 MWh in Lebanon.
The batteries will be delivered for eight micro-grid projects and will be combined with solar photovoltaic systems, the Chinese solar inverter producer said on Wednesday.
The assets are slated for commissioning in the final quarter of this year to provide power to communities and facilities in the ongoing power crisis in Lebanon. The country and its economic development have been suffering in recent years from the unstable power supply resulting from insufficient infrastructure.
"Lebanon is a perfect place to install solar projects, as the country has over 300 sunshine days per year. Deployed with Sungrow's solar-plus-storage solutions, an increasing number of local businesses and facilities are enjoying the independence of energy and decarbonizing their daily operations," said Sungrow's country manager for the Levant and Yemen, Zaid Al-Helo.
