German lithium BESS firm Tesvolt has been selected as the large commercial energy storage systems provider by north German utility Wemag.
Wemag has already started distributing Tesvolt’s systems across the country under the partnership, Tesvolt said.
The companies did not give details of the partnership, but Tesvolt said its technology was capable of storing electricity produced by renewable energy installations on farms, factories and car showrooms at an average cost of nine euro cents (10 US cents) per kilowatt hour (kWh).
Tesvolt’s systems are powered by Samsung SDI’s high voltage prismatic lithium cells and have storage capacities ranging from 10 kWh to one megawatt-hour (MWh). Tesvolt said its systems can be combined to suit applications with a storage demand of up to 100 MWh.
Tesvolt’s manager for central and eastern Germany Sven Huntemann (pictured) said the systems are produced at the company’s facility in Lutherstadt Wittenberg.
Wemag has also been working with German energy storage systems developer Younicos, which last year announced a tripling of capacity at Europe’s first commercial battery storage park in Schwerin-Lankow, Germany to 15 MWh.
