“We are committed to supporting the renewables industry in Chile, which is why it is important for us to join our clean energy sector colleagues here and become a member of ACERA,” said Mizhi Zhang, Hithium Head of Global Business, at the event. “As renewable energy generation grows, energy storage plays a key role in enabling the grid to incorporate clean power in a stable way. A big thanks to all our sector colleagues and partners who joined us tonight to celebrate and talk about how we can build out Chile’s energy storage together.”
A not-for-profit trade association founded in 2003, ACERA is focused on connecting stakeholders in the renewable energy market as well as promoting the transition to clean energy and greater energy efficiency in Chile.
Following its debut on the global energy storage market earlier in this year, Hithium introduced its first 5MWh “∞ Block” container system, which Hithium Director of Global Applications Engineering Neil Bradshaw presented in detail at the company’s event.
Bradshaw explained, “The system achieves a leap in energy density as well as simplifying installation. Using dual channel module technology, Hithium designed the modules to be inserted only from one side, allowing for subsequent maintenance to occur only on one side. This means the containers can be placed not just side by side but also back to back so that project owners need up to 20% less surface area. Likewise, the entire cabling exits the containers through the side instead underneath the container, enabling installers to save significantly on foundation costs.”
The Hithium event, “Hi Society,” took place at W Santiago Hotel where the manufacturer welcomed an estimated 70 members of the regional renewables community.
