Taiwan Power Company has partnered with Delta Electronics to build its largest energy storage system as part of a smart grid project on Kinmen Island.

Delta will provide a 1MWh lithium-ion battery energy storage system, a 2MW capacity power conditioning system, an energy management platform and environment management systems for installation at the utility’s Xia Xing Power Station.

The solution is expected to help Taiwan Power Company to stabilise the grid by quickly supplying backup power within 200ms after an unplanned generator outage takes place, provide a 30-minute buffer time to the power plant, and regulate the fluctuations caused by renewable energy on the grid.

The energy transition is a hot topic disrupting the utility industry in Asia and will be a key focus at Enlit Asia which takes place in Jakarta, Indonesia from 23-25 March. For more details click here.

The project is the first smart grid demonstration in Taiwan and is expected to help the country to define a model that will be used to guide the construction of smart grids on Taiwan’s main island in the future.

Ping Cheng, CEO of Delta said, “It’s an honor to participate in establishing Taipower’s largest energy storage system for the smart grid demonstration island Kinmen. Energy systems for the utility segment require rigorous planning and solid technology. Under the expert guidance of Taipower, Delta was able to leverage its strengths to make a contribution to Taiwan’s energy transformation.

“Energy transformation is a crucial issue for the development of smart cities. In addition to energy infrastructure solutions such as renewable energy, energy storage systems, energy IoT, and EV charging solutions, Delta is also devoted to developing building automation solutions, which manage power consumption information and energy-saving applications from end consumers. Our aim is to provide comprehensive green solutions for smart cities.”
