Aluminium rolling company Speira

Cost reduction and sustainability through intelligent battery storage system

Since November 2021, EDF Renewables has been operating an intelligent battery storage system at the aluminum rolling and recycling company Speira GmbH in Hamburg. Since then, the storage system has been delivering 1.6 MW of power for one hour without interruption - enough power to support the grid operator in stabilizing the power grid through intelligent load management without affecting the company's production processes. The battery allows Speira to benefit from atypical grid usage by reducing peak loads during the grid operator's high-load time windows and thus lowering the company's energy costs.

As a full-service provider, EDF Renewables takes care of everything from load and site analysis to installation, operation, and maintenance, as well as financing and recycling of the battery storage system. This eliminates all investment costs and risks for Speira.
