Germany is building its first ever battery storage plant with ENTERTRAG a wind energy business.
Enel Green Power Germany will build and manage a 22MW lithium-ion battery storage plant in Cremzow. They will be working with ENTERTAG and Leclanche, an energy storage solutions company to complete the project.
The energy storage facility will cost about $20.94 million.
The first 2 MW of the facility will be operational in April. The whole plant will be fully functional by the end of 2018.
"The project in Cremzow is an important milestone for us because, after the success of similar projects in Italy and Chile, it will further demonstrate how beneficial storage is for energy systems, in particular when coupled with renewables," said Antonio Cammisecra, CEO of Enel Green Power. "Storage is increasingly becoming a key tool in ensuring grid stability and is also a pathway towards the widespread adoption of renewables worldwide, facilitating their integration into power grids."
