CATL will supply FlexGen with EnerC, a containerized liquid-cooling battery system. With IP55 and C5 anti-corrosion protection, EnerC meets requirements of various harsh climatic conditions. EnerC’s energy density can reach 259.7 kWh per square meter, almost a 200% increase over traditional air-cooling systems.
FlexGen’s HybridOS energy management system platform will power the energy storage systems deployed with CATL to provide advanced and reliable capability for utility, competitive power market, as well as municipal and cooperative utility projects. The HybridOS platform is currently powering high performance energy storage systems in Texas, California and across North America.
The announcement follows FlexGen being named as a CATL Authorized Services Provider to provide maintenance and optimization services on CATL battery energy storage equipment. The partnership between the two companies now spans over 2.5 GWh in energy storage system projects.
“FlexGen and CATL have partnered for many years on advancing energy storage deployments. The significant commitment we are making to CATL and the energy storage market is built upon the quality, performance, and positive results this partnership has delivered to our customers,” said Kelcy Pegler, CEO of FlexGen. “We are excited about the opportunity to grow the energy storage market and bring exceptional energy storage technology to our customers.”
“FlexGen has been an essential partner for CATL in the deployment and growth of our energy storage business in North America. The deep technological partnership has ensured high performance and reliability for our customers and has resulted in some of the best performing plants we have operating,” said Tan Libin, vice president of CATL. “The expanded commitment we are making with this Supply Agreement highlights the value our organizations have delivered and the potential we see to further scale our partnership.”
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We discuss everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
