Singapore begins its energy revolution with two lithium-ion ESS led projects

Fri, 11/06/2020 - 10:09 -- paul Crompton

Singapore is testing the energy storage system (ESS) waters with the deployment of its first grid-scale lithium-ion venture and the launch of a pilot project aiming to demonstrate the usefulness of a floating system.

Both projects, including the first utility-scale ESS in Singapore, represent an important milestone in the city’s energy transition towards a low-carbon energy future.

CMI pilot project

Belgium-based engineering group CMI Energy has launched a full-scale pilot project that integrates solar with battery energy storage at the firm’s headquarters in Seraing.

The Micro Réseau Intégré Seraing (MiRIS) energy storage pilot plant comprises a 2MWp (megawatt peak— indicating the maximum output of a plant) 1.75 gigawatt-hours per year (GWh/yr) solar PV system, with 6,500 rooftop and carport panels. The 4.2 megawatt-hour energy storage system consists of a lithium-ion system and “two separate flow battery systems”.

Blockchain tech trialled in international projects

Dutch electricity transmission system operator (TSO) TenneT is working with German battery storage firm Sonnen, Amsterdam-based energy company Vandebron and IBM to launch pilot projects integrating storage batteries into the power supply system via blockchain technology.

Blockchain, a platform developed by IBM, ensures the verifiability and transparency of the transactions of the small-scale batteries. It is expected to simplify how suppliers of locally distributed flexible energy provide services to support power grid operators in the future.
