Heidenau (Sachsen) — Generic use-case
Battery Technology: Li-ion 200kW/240 kWh
In December 2019, EDF Renewables Deutschland and malt producer Malteurop commissioned two new battery storage systems in Rostock and Heidenau. Each battery is designed to supply the respective production plant with 200 kW for at least one hour. Thanks to EDF Energy Management System, the battery can adapt the plant’s consumption to the grid’s conditions, saving the company grid fees and making an important contribution to the success of the energy transition in Germany.
French-Guyana (South America)
Battery Technology: Na/NiCl2; 1,5MW/4,5MWh
Due to the highly variable climate conditions in the French Guyana, PV production is extremely erratic. The Toucan project has made it possible to smooth out short but extreme load peaks between sunshine and rain throughout the day. The battery storage solution is also used to enable energy production during the day to meet peak demand in the evening.
Battery Technology: Li-Ion 20MW/8,5MWh
McHenry was built to improve frequency response on the transmission grid. The McHenry plant provides dynamic energy reserve for the grid operator PJM, a regional transmission organization that coordinates the transmission of electricity in 13 U.S. states and the Disctrict of Columbia.
Nottinghamshire (Great Britain)
Battery Technology: Li-Ion; 49MW/35 MWh
The project is among the winners of the first “UK National Grid Call” for the provision of Enhanced Frequency Response (EFR). EDF Renewables achieved the best economic and technical solution for the battery storage in this call. Since 2018, “West Burton” is Europe’s largest battery in operation.
