Battery system for surplus energy
In November 2017, as the first battery storage operator in the Czech Republic, we launched an entirely new battery energy storage system (BESS - Battery Energy Storage System) for the accumulation of surplus energy from distribution systems and any power sources such as photovoltaic power plants or turbines. The battery system has an output of 1 MW a capacity more than 1 megawatt hours (MWh). The accumulated electricity is used in distribution system fluctuations (Peak shaving) or increased energy demand.
The storage system consists of one lithium battery container made by the Dutch company Alfen, a major supplier in the field of energy solutions. The storage of energy in the storage system reduces the load on transmission systems, eliminates critical network conditions and enables more efficient use of energy from unconventional sources. The system accumulates electricity in bulk so as to be available at periods when there is a lack of power in the grid and power needs to be released, or also when the network is unstable or is resisting huge fluctuations. In such cases, the battery is able to release power in a matter of seconds.
The device is one of the first large-capacity battery storage systems in the Czech Republic. The Association for energy and battery accumulation AKU-BAT CZ says that the construction of about twenty large battery power storage systems may commence in the Czech Republic.
Energy accumulation Innovation at Solar Global Service a.s.
Solar Global Service a.s. launched in July 2017 the physical implementation of the project CZ.01.3.14 / 0.0 / 0.0 / 16_043 / 0007265 "Energy Storage Innovation at Solar Global Service a.s."
The implemented project is focuses on innovative technologies that the applicant does not currently have, and which now are not commonly used in the Czech Republic. Specifically, it is a battery system for energy accumulation. By acquiring and installing a battery system, the applicant seeks a completely new and innovative concept of electricity management (or trading), which, according to available information is unique, not only in the Czech Republic but also within the European area.
The operation receiving financial support of the EU.
