Feldheim

German companies Energiequelle (EQ) and Enercon have announced their plans for a 10MW-lithium-ion battery storage park in Feldheim, Germany.

The construction of the biggest battery storage park in Germany will start in June this year at EQ’s facility in Feldheim, 30 miles south of Berlin. The facility will have a storage capacity of 5MWh. Only 1% of the produced electricity in the village is actually used. The plan is to feed the system with the energy surplus of the local 72MW wind farm and participate more efficiently in the weekly tenedering for primary control reserve.
