CSI to provide 49.5MW of UK storage to Cero & Enso

June 6, 2023

Canadian Solar subsidiary CSI Energy Storage has entered into an agreement to deliver a 49.5MW/99MWh turnkey battery energy storage system to European solar energy development, production and storage company Cero Generation and Enso Energy. 

Cero’s 11 GW development portfolio includes utility-scale solar as well as integrated energy storage systems.

Cero, together with its UK development partner Enso, will use CSI Energy Storage’s SolBank products for a battery energy storage project, which is co-located with the Larks Green solar PV project in South Gloucestershire in the UK. The Larks Green solar PV project is the UK’s first transmission-connected solar farm. Also owned and operated by Cero and Enso, it was energised in May 2023.

CSI Energy Storage will also provide full commissioning and integration services for the projects, in addition to long-term operations and maintenance, warranties and performance guarantees. The projects covered by the agreement are expected to reach commercial operation in late 2024.

As of March 31, 2023, CSI Energy Storage’s total pipeline was 22.8 GWh.
