Belectric Commissions 1.9 MWh Battery Storage Facility for Audi

German EPC player, Belectric has announced that a new battery storage facility was officially inaugurated at the EUREF Campus, a green innovation cluster in Berlin. 

Battery Storage Facility

The company was contracted to build the battery storage facility for Audi, with its 20 batteries sourced from test vehicles belonging to the car manufacturer. The system is part of the Mobility2Grid research project and its 1.9 MWh total capacity is intended to complete the campus’ micro smart grid

“On the EUREF Campus, we’ve seen a present-day example of how the energy and transport sectors can work together effectively and compatibly in the future. I’m pleased that Belectric has been able to be part of this groundbreaking project,” said Frank Amend, the Belectric Management Board member responsible for batteries and hybrid systems. “This battery storage system will allow Audi to provide an important link between volatile generation from renewable energy sources, different consumers and state-of-the-art power grids. At Belectric, we assisted with system integration for this storage facility by drawing on the wide experience we’ve been able to gain from our extensive track record of implementing other storage projects.”

The architecture and control system are designed so that the storage facility can be used for a variety of applications in the power grid – stabilising the grid, temporarily storing renewable energy, flattening peaks, improving the energy supply along with a co-generation plant, and providing highly specialised grid services such as reactive power compensation.

Earlier this month, the company announced that it had completed two large-scale PV rooftop projects for Cleantech Solar. With a combined capacity of 26 MWp, the solar power plants are amongst Asia’s largest rooftop installations. The projects were developed by Cleantech Solar, the regional leader in solar energy solutions for corporate customers in Asia. On behalf of Cleantech Solar, Belectric took control of the construction and commissioning of the large-scale projects.
