FlexGen and CATL to Deliver 220 MWh Energy Storage in Texas

FlexGen has teamed with CATL to install two 110 MWh stand-alone battery storage projects in Texas’ Hill Country.

FlexGen, a leading energy storage technology solutions and services provider, has announced it has teamed with CATL, a global leader in the development and manufacturing of lithium-ion batteries for new energy vehicles and energy storage systems (ESS), to install two 110 MWh stand-alone battery storage projects in Texas’ Hill Country. When deployed, the two energy storage systems will serve as dispatchable assets for a leading independent power producer.

“We are pleased to expand our relationship with CATL on the installation of these two 110 MWh battery storage projects,” said Alan Grosse, FlexGen COO. “CATL’s technical and commercial teams have been good partners, and we look forward to working together to serve more Texans and their families.”

To date, FlexGen’s HybridOS energy management system platform controls more than 260 MW and 171 MWh of energy storage projects in commercial operation, with more than 202,000 hours of run time.

“FlexGen continues its leadership in the Texas energy storage market with its integration services and HybridOS energy management system,” said Tiger Li, head of America and Europe energy storage system business at CATL. “CATL is delighted to work with FlexGen again on these record-setting projects with Outdoor Liquid Cooling rack which is a convenient ESS solution for integrators and investors.”

Recently, we had reported that Fluence, a leading global energy storage solutions provider, had entered into a definitive agreement with the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) pursuant to which QIA will commit to invest USD 125 million in the storage company through a private placement transaction. Fluence stated that it intends to use the net proceeds from the private placement to further accelerate the development of its product offerings, particularly digital products, and deployment of existing products in more markets globally.

QIA’s investment brings another strong financial partner to The AES Corporation (AES) and Siemens joint venture.
