NEC Energy Solutions will provide a 1.2MWh lithium ion battery system for a grid stabilising project in Bavaria, Germany.

The install, being carried out by Smart Power GmbH, will include NEC's containerized batteries, controls hardware and software, as well as a maintenance contract.

Local utilities and network operator TenneT are working with Smart Power to provide services for Germany’s primary reserve market, the PRL. The PRL market includes the matching of supply and demand as well as balancing services.

“This project is a first of its kind for NEC in Germany and represents our ongoing commitment to deliver comprehensive energy storage solutions with the capabilities needed to meet requirements throughout the world,” said Bud Collins, CEO, NEC Energy Solutions. “This project with Smart Power signifies the value of a collaborative approach to support a reliable, secure, efficient and sustainable electricity grid infrastructure,” he added.

Southern Germany has been a hotspot for energy storage trials with the regional Bavarian government also running its own trials.
