Work has began on the primary multi-megawatt battery storage mission in Germany.
RES Deutschland is constructing the 10 MW mission for utility VBB within the German municipality Bordesholm.
The battery storage will present grid stabilization and back-up energy fed from 100 per cent renewables to Bordesholm if there’s a foremost grid disruption or upstream grid failure.
Bordesholm presently meets 75 per cent of its electrical energy demand from renewables that are instantly related to the grid. VBB is aiming to boost this determine to 100 per cent by 2020.
In addition to offering management energy, VBB’s battery with a storage capability of 15 MWh can proceed to offer energy to Bordesholm if there’s a grid outage.
VBB Managing Director Frank GÃ¼nther mentioned: “This is a novel resolution for an island community linking right into a public energy provide community. With this good resolution, the usage of coal and nuclear energy crops could be averted sooner or later. New, fashionable battery storage crops can make sure the required system stability by utilizing solely renewable vitality.”
The Bordesholm mission is funded as a pilot mission by the EU and the state of Schleswig-Holstein, which is selling the event of storage applied sciences.
"With this standalone resolution, the battery storage turns into a flagship mission, which varieties an important part on the way in which to a provide from 100 per cent renewable vitality," mentioned Dominique Guillou, managing director of RES Deutschland.
Matthias Leuthold, head of vitality storage at RES Germany, added: "Battery storage methods are central components of the German Energy Transition 2.zero. In the approaching years, as a result of growing displacement of thermal energy crops by renewable vitality sources, the supply of main management energy with battery storage methods will proceed to realize significance in Germany."
The VBB-project is the primary multi-megawatt battery storage mission in Germany. The commissioning of the battery storage is scheduled for spring 2019. After the completion of this pilot mission, analysis establishments and universities will be capable to use the info generated from the battery storage to switch new findings to different community tasks.
