Malawi to Build First Solar-Storage Project

Chinese-based Sungrow Power Supply has partnered with JCM Power, InfraCo Africa, Energy Catalyst, RINA Tech UK and Innovate UK to build Malawi’s first-ever solar-storage project – a 20MWac solar photovoltaic (PV)and 5 MW/10 MWh energy storage facility.

The Golomoti Project will be located in the Dedza district of Malawi with project implementation undertaken by JCM and InfraCo. Energy Catalyst, RINA Tech UK and Innovate UK will financially support the project.

Sungrow will supply the project with a one-stop solar-plus-storage medium voltage solution consisting of a PV inverter, medium voltage power station, all-in-one power conversion system, battery container and energy management system. According to Sungrow, through its capabilities in frequency control, voltage control, peak shaving and reactive power support, the solution will improve the availability and reliability of the country’s energy supply. 

“We are pleased to have selected Sungrow to supply solar inverters, transformer kiosks and a one-stop lithium-ion battery energy storage solution for this pioneering project. Together with Sungrow’s global experience, we look forward to this project demonstrating the pathway for clean, affordable and reliable energy for Malawi and further as a demonstration to other developing nations,” says Shane Eglinton JCM Power Engineering Director.
