Large-scale battery storage is happening
Energy storage and grid stability in the new energy world.
Vattenfall is driving the transition to a new energy landscape and supporting greater integration of renewable energy. Battery storage systems play a vital part and Vattenfall has already launched numerous battery projects. Large-scale batteries deployed in connection with wind farms help reduce costs for both the wind farm and the battery plant by sharing the same infrastructure and at the same time offer flexibility to the grid operator. In addition, batteries provide fossil free storage solutions at the customers' premises and offer uninterrupted power supply for data centres by replacing diesel generators.
Batteries also enable customers to make their consumption more flexible by using Peak shaving. Peak shaving is a technique to reduce electrical power consumption during periods of maximum demand and therefore reduce costs.
News and press releases
In the Netherlands construction company Heijmans uses GreenBattery instead of diesel generators on its way to a CO2-free building environment.
Combining solar with other power sources is smart way of using technical infrastructure. In Germany two hydro power stations will get additional solar power.
Modular lithium-ion battery solution Voltpack Mobile System could be an alternative for diesel generators and more.
All wind turbines of Vattenfall’s first hybrid energy park have now been installed. Next up is the powerful solar panels and batteries to complete it.
New battery storage facility in Sweden increases grid capacity
Electric car batteries have a significantly lower impact on the climate than what was previously assumed, a new study shows.
