Canadian Solar announced that CSI Energy Storage will launch the SolBank, a proprietary designed and manufactured energy storage battery solution for utility-scale applications. CSI Energy Storage also announced the expansion of its battery manufacturing capacity from the existing 2.5 GWh to 10 GWh by the end of 2023. The SolBank is a lithium iron phosphate (LiFePO4) chemistry-based battery enclosure with up to 2,800 kWh of usable energy capacity, specifically engineered to be one of the safest and most reliable systems for utility-scale applications. The SolBank is designed with liquid cooling and humidity control, active balancing BMS (Battery Management System) technologies, and complies with the latest international safety and compliance standards.CSI Energy Storage currently produces the SolBank at its workshops in Jiangsu Province in China. The current annual battery manufacturing output capacity is 2.5 GWh and is expected to reach 10 GWh by the end of 2023. These workshops include the manufacturing of its own proprietary designed battery modules, packs, and containerization with fully automated, state-of-art production lines and testing facilities.The newly launched SolBank battery solution will be one of the most bankable and competitive integrated battery storage solutions in the market. To complement this, CSI Energy Storage also provides additional value services to its customers, including full commissioning and integration services, turnkey EPC project execution and long-term operational service and capacity maintenance. These services build upon its teams' experience and capabilities developed over many years of delivering renewable energy projects for Canadian Solar.
