75 MW Storage Inverter Backlog For DynaPower Energy Management

Dynapower Energy Management is a company based in Burlington, Vermont, that makes energy storage inverters, and which has experienced so much demand that a 75 MW backlog of orders has accumulated. Its inverters work with the Tesla Energy Powerpack, which is Tesla’s commercial energy storage offering. The very strong interest in Tesla’s energy storage product has partly spilled over into Dynapower’s territory, because it supplies 250-kW inverters for those systems.

Overall, new energy storage in the US surpassed 100 MW in the third quarter, and Dynapower is a leader in bi-directional inverters, so it has been racking up the orders. In addition to experiencing the record backlog, Dynapower has exceeded 250 MW of installed systems in total.

“These record numbers are the result of unprecedented demand across different markets. Behind-the-meter applications in California continue to drive a significant amount of our commercial and industrial projects. The adoption of storage by IPPs and utilities in multiple states has led to larger project work. The market has also recognized that there are design, quality and performance differences among various suppliers, and our inverters excel in all of these areas, ” explained Adam Knudsen, Dynapower’s President.

Dynapower’s MPS™-250 is the inverter that works well with the Tesla Powerpack. Here’s a spec sheet with information about things like the DC and AC voltage and max DC current.

It will be fascinating to see what happens as the Tesla Powerpacks become available. Green Biz reported in May 2015 that 2,800 had been ordered. If that is an accurate number and they are all delivered and installed, how many will be in the next wave? Working with Tesla in the energy storage space might turn out to be a very good idea.

It will also be intriguing to see if any new competitors to Tesla emerge, bringing new energy storage products to market, and which innovations they may have. Will utilities be encouraged to invest in more utility-scale solar if they have large, viable energy storage solutions available to them?
