CleanPeak entered a joint venture and exclusivity arrangement with Powin Energy in 2018. Our plan is to lead the 1-5 MW battery market in Australia. The joint venture allows preferred pricing and production slots for battery systems.
Powin Energy Corporation was founded in 1989 and has its headquarters in Tualatin, Oregon. Powin has developed the modular Stack 140 and scalable Battery Energy Storage System (BESS), which both feature the patented battery pack operating system (bp-OS) software controls. Powin’s core technology is a patented BMS that is integrated with third-party battery cells that are combined in series and parallel to form multiple Stack 140’s, a third-party inverter, a thermal management system, and a containerized or facility enclosure to produce a grid-tied AC BESS. Each BESS can be housed in an insulated and climate controlled 20ft or 40ft shipping container (as pictured above).
To date, Powin has installed more than 70 MWh of projects across Europe, the US and Canada, and has secured a further 95 MWh under contracts to be competed by 2021.
CleanPeak's current contracts allow for the roll-out of 10 MWh of Powin Battery systems, which will be the first Powin systems to enter the Australian market.
