Welcome on Board Jinko ESS
The European Association for Storage of Energy (EASE) is glad to extend a warm welcome to its newest member Jinko ESS, a strategic business unit of Jinko, who joined EASE in December 2023. Roberto Murgioni (Head of ESS) accepted to discuss with us about the expertise of Jinko ESS, in energy storage and expectations from this collaboration with EASE.
EASE: Thank you for accepting this interview. We're delighted to have Jinko ESS as a new member. Can you provide an overview of Jinko ESS's activities in the energy storage sector and share some key insights from your company's work in this field?
I'm thrilled to be part of this interview and to join EASE. Jinko ESS, the strategic arm of Jinko, provides innovative energy storage solutions tailored to our clients' specific needs.
Our flagship product, SunTera, is a cutting-edge utility-scale energy storage system with a 3.76 MWh capacity and state-of-the-art liquid cooling technology. It ensures safety, efficiency, and real-time monitoring, catering to grid stabilization and load balancing. SunGiga, our industrial-scale battery cabinet, offers flexible configurations and compatibility with various battery systems, ideal for diverse applications.
Energy Storage Systems (ESS) play a crucial role in grid stabilization, providing backup power, and optimizing renewable energy integration. Our primary goal is to optimize energy management, developing strategies for storing excess energy during low-demand or high-renewable generation periods and releasing stored energy during peak demand or low renewable generation.
Our main focus is contributing to grid stability and reliability by providing grid support services such as frequency regulation, voltage control, and grid balancing, addressing the intermittency of renewable energy sources. We aim to help our partners achieve cost savings by optimizing energy consumption patterns, reducing peak demand charges, and potentially avoiding expensive grid infrastructure upgrades. We also enhance energy system resilience by providing backup power during grid outages, crucial for critical infrastructure, businesses, and industrial customers. Through ESS, we deliver environmental benefits, contributing to greenhouse gas emission reduction by efficiently using renewable energy and supporting the transition to a sustainable energy system.
In summary, our mission in the EU is to design, implement, and optimize energy storage solutions to enhance the reliability, efficiency, and sustainability of energy systems, while addressing challenges associated with renewable energy integration. Our work contributes to the overall transition towards a more resilient and low-carbon energy future.
EASE: We anticipate a fruitful collaboration and value your contributions to our Working Groups and Task Forces. What motivated Jinko ESS to join EASE, and what specific areas or initiatives are you most excited about participating in within our association?
We're excited to collaborate with EASE and contribute to its Working Groups and Task Forces. Jinko Solar's decision to join reflects our commitment to innovation in energy storage. We're particularly interested in the safety and sustainability task forces, recognizing their importance in shaping responsible energy solutions. We look forward to sharing our expertise and driving industry progress in these key areas.
EASE: Looking ahead, how do you envision energy storage contributing to the ongoing energy transition? What role do you see Jinko ESS playing in advancing and shaping the future of energy storage within this context?
Looking forward, we see energy storage as crucial in the ongoing energy transition, enhancing grid reliability, integrating renewables, and ensuring sustainability. At Jinko ESS, we're committed to leading this charge by providing innovative solutions that address evolving challenges. We prioritize safety, efficiency, and sustainability in our offerings and aim to accelerate the transition to a greener energy landscape through collaboration and participation in initiatives like EASE.
