CATL has signed four cooperation agreements with developers, Quinbrook, SPIC, CRRC Zhuzhou Institute and Tianchen Energy Technology for CATL’s BESS (Battery Energy Stationary Storage) products to be deployed across China and globally.


On the 7th of November, CATL and Quinbrook signed a Global Framework Agreement for stationary storage. The pair aim to deploy over 10GWh of CATL’s BESS over the coming five years. The partnership aims to enhance the BESS technology available to Quinbrook in projects across the US, the UK and Australia. CATL will begin by supplying its EnerC Plus storage containers to Quinbrook, this adaptive storage provides BESS protection under harsh conditions. Additionally, the EnerC Plus integrates CATL’s newest liquid-cooling system. Both companies are collaborating over initial 1GWh+ projects in Australia and the UK to showcase CATL’s technology. This follows on from Quinbrook recently deploying CATL’s BESS at its Project Gemini in Nevada, US. CATL supplied 1.4GWh of LFP batteries to the solar-plus-storage project.


On the 7th of November, CATL and the State Power Investment Corporation (SPIC) signed a joint venture (JV) agreement to establish the SPIC CATL Energy Storage Company.
