Powin Energy to Deploy 2.4 MWh of Energy Storage for Hawaiian Solar

By Editors of Power Engineering

Powin Energy was selected by Adon Renewables to provide energy storage systems for a portfolio of seven solar projects across Hawaii.

Over time, Powin and Adon will use Powin’s site management software and its Battery Pack Operating System to offer frequency and voltage regulation, local capacity augmentation, emergency services and load control to customers.

“Hawaii is a very important market for energy storage because of the state’s aggressive goal to run on 100% renewable energy by 2045, so we’re pleased to have built this partnership with Adon Renewables and secured the first of what we hope to be many projects with them on the islands,” said Geoffrey Brown, President of Powin Energy.

“The state has already installed a large amount of solar both residentially and commercially, but all of these distributed resources have created an urgent need for energy storage to maintain system frequency and voltage as well as energy shifting from daytime to peak periods in the evening when it is needed most.”

The seven initial sites include those used by the Boy Scouts of America and Aqua Kauai Beach Resort.

Powin Energy’s Stack140 is a modular 140 kWh battery array that cost-effectively scales from 125 kW to multiple megawatt applications. It is available in both indoor and NEMA 3R outdoor models, each of which is engineered to maximize energy density and minimize system footprint.
