News Flash

  • JinkoSolar, the world’s leading solar and energy storage company, has announced that it will supply a 4.82-megawatt-hour (MWh) utility-scale energy storage system to Solarmate Engineering Ltd in Nigeria.

This is one of JinkoSolar’s utility-scale energy storage projects to be built in Nigeria. The integrated energy storage system will improve efficiency at the local power station by reducing the need for emergency backup spinning reserves, therefore lowering fuel consumption.

JinkoSolar’s megawatt-scale energy storage stations have been installed in Nigeria and other African countries, with the key highlights including integrated modular and pre-assembled design to save space and installation time, high energy density, prolonged service life of 6,000-8,000 cycled times, air cooling and liquid cooling mechanism option available to provide temperature uniformly within battery and cabinet, wider temperature range from -20 to 60 Celsius degree, AC-DC-AC efficiency shown to be as high as 95%, an industry benchmark high; DC to DC efficiency as high as 96%.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
