Fluence Energy Incorporated has announced the completion of a 570 MW battery energy storage system (BESS) portfolio supplied to SMC Global Power Holdings Corporation (SMCGP) in the Philippines.

The announcement was made during an inauguration ceremony held by SMCGP, one of the biggest power suppliers in Philippines, for its 1,000 MW/1,000 MWh BESS fleet in the country. SMCGP’s energy storage portfolio is strategically located across 32 sites throughout the Philippines to provide grid stability, as increasing amounts of intermittent renewable energy sources are integrated into the grid. Fluence has deployed 570 MW of energy storage across 18 sites for SMCGP. These projects are providing critical grid stability services throughout the National Transmission Network in Philippines, including frequency response, reserve power, and voltage regulation.
