China‘s largest electrochemical energy storage power station connected to the grid for power generation
The full-capacity grid connection ceremony of China National Nuclear Corporation Xinhua Power Generation Shache's 1-million-kilowatt solar-storage integration project was held in the Photovoltaic Power Generation Park of Shache County of Kashgar, northwest China's Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.
The project's total investment is about 5 billion yuan ($700 million), with an installed capacity of 800,000 kilowatts and a supporting energy storage power station of 200,000 kilowatts/ 800,000 kilowatt-hours. Among them, the energy storage power station is currently China's largest electrochemical energy storage power station.
After the electrochemical energy storage power station is completed and put into operation, it will improve the safety and stability of the local power grid. According to the calculation of charging and discharging daily, it can generate 292 million kWh of electricity every year and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 230,000 tons, equivalent to the electricity required by 500,000 residential users for a month during peak electricity consumption.【孫亭文】
