KIT PV plant

Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and SMA Solar Technology (SMA) have opened two separate utility-scale solar plants with lithium-ion battery storage in Germany.

KIT inaugurated together with its partners SolarWatt (SW) and Kostal Solar Electric (KSE) a 1MW PV plant coupled with a 100kWh lithium-ion battery storage system at its research centre in Karlsruhe. The project focuses on demonstrating and researching energy storage and grid control. The PV modules were supplied from SW and the inverters from KSE.
