The Energy Storage division of SolarEdge Technologies is now shipping new battery cells designed for stationary residential, commercial and utility-scale energy storage projects. This is a line of nickel manganese cobalt (NMC) pouch cells, manufactured at Sella 2, the company’s new battery cell manufacturing facility in South Korea.
The cells support up to 8,000 cycles, high energy density, high-power throughput and a wide temperature range “without compromising operational life,” SolarEdge notes. The company believes these will support a broad range of use cases, including grid-stability applications.
“The global stationary storage market is estimated to grow from approximately 45 GWh in 2022 to 164 GWh by 2030 and SolarEdge is focused on supporting this critical segment,” says Ronen Faier, SolarEdge Chief Financial Officer and General Manager of SolarEdge Energy Storage division. “Owning key processes and cell chemistries will allow us to further secure the resilience of our supply chain and provides us with the flexibility to produce cells optimized for various energy storage solutions.”
