The Netherlands Advancion Energy Storage Array has begun operating and provides 10 MW / 10 MWh of storage to Dutch transmission system operator TenneT. The project, which is AES’s first installation on the European continent, will provide Primary Control Reserve (PCR), matching supply and demand on the local grid by using power stored in its batteries to respond quickly to grid imbalances. PCR is known by a number of other terms, such as frequency regulation, in the US and elsewhere.
