German battery park triples capacity

Europe’s first commercial battery storage park has tripled in size to a capacity of 15 MWh, German energy storage systems developer Younicos has announced.

Younicos, which installed the first-phase Schwerin 1 lithium-ion battery plant at Schwerin-Lankow in Germany in 2014, said the second phase of the project – Schwerin 2 – has expanded the facility from the 5 MWh originally available on commissioning of the site in 2014.

Younicos Li-ion BESS to give German grid black start back-up

Europe’s first commercial battery park will provide regional grid black-start back-up, the first time a stationary battery storage system has been able to do so in Germany. 

In 2014, German energy storage systems developer Younicos installed the 5MW lithium-ion battery plant at Schwerin-Lankow for energy and natural gas utility WEMAG.

Construction has begun on the site to house Europe’s largest commercial battery park. German utility company WEMAG and Berlin-based renewables expert, Younicos, have begun working on the site that is due to be online in September 2014.

The site in Schwerin, northern Germany, will house a 5MWh battery to offset short-term power fluctuations from renewable energy sources to assist with stabilising grid frequency. Samsung SDI is supplying the lithium-ion cells with an assurance of 20 years performance guaranteed.

This is part of a Germany-wide effort to increase the use of renewable energy to lessen the dependence on fossil fuel and nuclear-generated electricity.
