Vermont Business Magazine South Burlington-based Dynapower Company and Samsung SDI announced Wednesday the introduction of an integrated behind-the-meter energy storage system built on their respective proven technologies. The initial release of the system will be a 250 kW/550 kWh offering, with a 100 kW two-hour system to follow. The integrated energy storage offering provides energy storage system vendors, project developers, and utilities with a fully engineered solution that reduces costs for commercial and industrial end users in the deployment of energy storage. This line of systems will incorporate Dynapower’s recently released Generation 2 MPS product line of behind-the-meter energy storage inverters and Samsung SDI’s recently released E2 battery solution.

The two companies share a wealth of field proven integration experience of their technologies across a wide range of ESS projects, sizes, and applications including the Electrical Training Institute Net Zero Plus building microgrid and Duke Energy Notrees 36MW/14MWh ESS repower.

"We have worked alongside Samsung SDI for a number of years and are excited to take that collaborative effort to the next level with the introduction of an integrated energy storage solution,” said Adam M. Knudsen, President of Dynapower. “As the energy storage industry has rapidly evolved we have seen a clear demand from the market for engineered solutions that are flexible and proven. This is a solution customers can rely upon.”

“Together, Dynapower and Samsung SDI are well positioned to help expand market opportunities for our behind-the-meter storage customers by providing fully integrated engineering solutions,” said Fabrice Hudry Vice President Energy Storage Solutions at Samsung SDI. “Samsung SDI is the world leader in Li-ion battery technology, and specifically for stationary energy storage application, and it is only fitting that we integrate our batteries with Dynapower’s leading inverter technology.”

Dynapower and Samsung SDI are launching their integrated behind-the-meter ESS offering with an immediate first deployment at the University of Minnesota, and are already working with several behind-the-meter ESS developers to deploy their unique integrated solution across the nation throughout 2017.
