JinkoSolar, one of the largest and most innovative PV module manufacturers in the world, announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with Must, one of the biggest distributors of photovoltaic modules, inverters, batteries and energy storage system in African distribution market. According to the agreement, JinkoSolar will supply over 100MWh of its ESS products to Must, including lithium iron phosphate battery system units for residential use and LFP container storage system for C&I power demand.JinkoSolar’s energy storage system features higher energy density while maintaining long life span and strong safety. It uses a lithium iron phosphate (LFP) as its anode materials with the additional advantage of no memory effect so the battery can be charged and discharged shallowly and frequently, which can effectively improve the efficiency of the system. On top of that, it also possesses protection functions like over-charge, over-discharge, over-current and abnormal temperature, which guarantees reliability & safety over the lifespan.Flexible design configuration is another key feature of JInkoSolar’s ESS to meet the requirements in different application scenarios in Africa. In areas with high operating temperatures and limited installation space, users can connect the battery units parallel to form a larger capacity battery pack to meet their requirements of long power backup time and long service life. In relatively developed areas of Africa, the system supports on- and off-grid switching function, which allows it to be integrated into the grid to maximize IRR and lower LCOE.
