Statkraft has constructed a 3 MW battery project at the site of the Dörverden run-of-river power plant.

The civil works lay the foundation for Statkraft’s foray into new decentralized storage technologies. The installation is comprised of three battery containers, each with 1 megawatt (MW) installed capacity. The aim of the pilot project is to deliver control reserve power to the German transmission grid. Pre-qualification by transmission system operators (TSO) to provide balancing power is expected to be completed at the same time.
