Athens, Greece, 02.06.2023
Sunlight will showcase its innovative offerings for the developing ESS industry, spearheaded by the most recent addition to the fully EU-made Sunlight Li.ON ESS range: the most advanced DC Unit for energy storage
Sunlight Group's team of experts will be at Booth B2.380 to present the company's new range of Sunlight Li.ON ESS products that meet the most advanced needs of the energy storage industry. Recent additions include the Grid-scale high voltage plug-and-play DC block and the enhanced C&I solution that complement the residential product line.
The Sunlight Li.ON ESS range reflects the most intelligent and sustainable technologies used in the manufacturing of Sunlight Group’s lithium-based energy storage systems, further establishing the company as a real change-maker and pioneer of energy transition.
Visitors to Booth B2.380 will also learn more about Sunlight's significant investments in creating a Pilot Line for the manufacturing of LFP lithium cells; itself, the first step towards the major goal of establishing in Europe a Gigafactory producing lithium cells.
Sunlight Group, the global technology company specializing in integrated and innovative off-road mobility batteries for the intralogistics sector and Energy Storage Systems, will once again participate at ees The Smarter E Europe 2023. Europe’s largest Exhibition for renewables and energy efficiency solutions will be held from June 14th to June 16th in Munich, Germany and Sunlight Group will showcase its expanded product range for the stationary storage sector – a key enabler for the transition to a greener, all-electric future.
Sunlight’s dedicated team of experts will present at Booth B2.380 the company’s innovative lithium-ion offerings that meet the most advanced needs of the ever-growing energy storage industry. The company is heavily investing in the expansion of its range of Sunlight Li.ON ESS products, including Sunlight Li.ON ESS Grid, the most advanced lithium-ion plug-and-play DC unit. The product features all of the characteristics of the Sunlight Li.ON ESS series, namely incredible energy dense; longer cycle life, guaranteeing 7,000 cycles; and outstanding safety design that exceeds UL9540a specifications. In addition, the 1.4 MWh state-of-art DC Unit, suitable for Grid-scale applications, also offers drop ship capacity and minimal auxiliary consumption. These and several other features will be presented at a dedicated learning session and Happy hour event at our Booth B2.380, to be held on Wednesday 14th of June, at 16:00.
Sunlight Booth B2.380 will also showcase the sister product Sunlight Li.ON ESS C&I, a fully integrated energy storage system designed to become the solution of choice for behind-the-meter applications such as airports, hospitals, data centers, schools, islanded networks, energy-intensive industries and businesses in general. It is designed to be extremely flexible in terms of AC power rating and DC energy capacity, with cloud-based full capability.
Lastly, visitors to Sunlight Group's booth will also have the opportunity to learn more about the company’s flagship project: the establishment of a Pilot Line for the production of LFP (lithium iron phosphate) battery cells in the company’s industrial complex located in Xanthi, NE Greece. An IPCEI project, co-funded by the EU and own investments, the Pilot Line is already in implementation and expected to operate by the end of the year. This significant €130 million project is the first step in the implementation of Sunlight Group’s strategic plan to establish on European soil a true Gigafactory producing LFP lithium-ion battery cells, dedicated exclusively to energy Storage Systems and industrial mobility. This development will accelerate and complete the full vertical integration of Sunlight’s production and also contribute to key energy transition targets.
