Trina Storage-Power Electronics partnership targets 1 GWh BESS deployments by the end of next year
Trina Storage, the energy storage division of solar PV manufacturer Trina Solar, has formed a partnership with solar inverter manufacturer Power Electronics to jointly deploy battery storage.
China’s vertically integrated PV company, a member of the “solar module super league” of major manufacturers, as coined by our colleagues at PV technology – said today that it will deploy more than 1 GWh of battery energy storage system (BESS) installations by the end of 2023, which are integrated with PCSK inverters from Power Electronics, whose headquarters social is in Spain.
The two companies signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) for the agreement to perform the deployments jointly at last week’s Intersolar Europe show in Germany.

The company said a US launch was imminent.
Elementa is a fully integrated and modular solution designed for easy plug and play installation. It features a standardized design equipped with lithium iron phosphate (LFP) battery cells and liquid cooling technology. Trina Storage is currently building 3 GWh of annual LFP cell production capacity at facilities in China.
