Venteea, smartgrid demonstrator for wind generation, was launched on December 2012. In March 2013, the partners decided to add a storage component that will begin testing in early 2015.

More than a dozen use cases will be studied, such as frequency regulation and solving of congestion for the TSO, peak consumption and voltage regulation for the DSO, and generation cut-off for the producer.

The solution chosen for the storage system is comprised of two Saft Intensium lithium ion batteries with a combined 2 MW/1.3 MWh that enables testing of most services while controlling costs.
