November 10, 2022: RWE introduced on November 7 that it’s going to make investments round €140 million ($130 million) in a 220MW battery storage challenge in Germany deploying 690 lithium-ion battery blocks at its present vegetation in Neurath and Hamm in North Rhine- Westphalia.
Underneath the constructing allow, building ought to start in 2023, with commissioning deliberate for 2024.
The system can stabilize the grid for greater than an hour. The battery is nearly networked with RWE’s German energy vegetation.
Roger Miesen, CEO of RWE Era stated: “This challenge will set new requirements by way of dimension in addition to clever networking and can optimize our German energy plant fleet, in addition to present stability that power.”
In Neurath, 80MW of batteries might be put in with 140MW in Hamm within the Westfalen energy plant,
RWE develops, builds, and operates battery storage methods in Europe, Australia and the Americas. It operates with a complete put in battery storage capability of roughly 150MW (160 MWh) and has carried out battery storage tasks of greater than 800MW (1,800MWh) worldwide.
This 12 months, RWE commissioned a 60MW battery storage system in Eire, and a 40MW battery storage system mixed with a photo voltaic PV plant within the US state of Georgia. In Germany, RWE is commissioning a 117MW challenge that’s largely related to run-of-river hydropower vegetation on the Moselle river.
