On Dec. 13, the Wanli 6MW/36MWh lead-carbon battery energy storage project, funded by the Guangzhou Power Supply Bureau, began official trial operations. The project is the largest behind-the-meter energy storage station in the China Southern Power Grid region. Calls for bids for supply of equipment opened in July of this year, with Narada Power earning the contract. Project operations are handled by the Guangzhou Suinengtong Integrated Energy Co. The project occupies a space of approximately 1000 Sq meters. The project helps reduce peak distribution loads, saving Wanli nearly 1 million RMB per year in electricity fees.
