Ulanqab, a location in Inner Mongolia famed for its attractive grassland natural landscape, has recently gained notice due to the region's construction of the world's largest source-grid-load-storage demonstration project. Additionally, it is China's largest wind-solar-storage hybrid project and its first renewable energy power plant to incorporate a GWh-scale energy storage technology.
The project's projected capacity is 3.1GW, which includes 2.8GW of wind energy, 300MW of photovoltaic energy, and 1,760,000kWh of energy storage. The project's first phase, totaling 500,000 kW of wind and photovoltaic energy, has already been connected to the grid. And JA Solar supplied all of the modules for the 90,000 kW photovoltaic component.
The total number of solar photovoltaic modules supplied by JA Solar for the project is DeepBlue 3.0, which incorporates several cost-cutting and profit-enhancing technologies that effectively reduce the levelized cost of power. DeepBlue 3.0 has been recognized by authoritative third-party institutions for its exceptional efficiency in power generation, receiving awards such as TÜV Rheinland's "Energy Yield Simulation AQM Award – Monofacial Mono Group" and TÜV Nord's "Outdoor Yield Performance Awards (High-efficiency PERC Module Group)." Furthermore, according to half-yearly data from an energy yield test conducted by JA Solar and TÜV Nord, DeepBlue 3.0's energy yield performance is among the highest in the PERC module market. By 2021, cumulative global DeepBlue 3.0 shipments would have surpassed 12GW, covering 86 countries and regions.
"The innovative application of source-grid-load-storage integration strengthens the coordination of the integrated power system, alleviates pressure on the power grid, promotes renewable energy consumption, and therefore plays a significant role in developing new ways of using renewable energy, It is a great honour for JA Solar to participate in the construction of this project and supply all the PV modules for its first phase. The continuous development of the PV industry is inseparable from the continuous innovation of products and technologies, and also the upgrade in applications. Moving forward, JA Solar will maintain focus on technology research and product development, thereby continuing to provide customers with high-quality products that contribute to the development of the PV industry and the construction of a low-carbon society."
