In order to ensure the balance of the power grid and maintain its baseline frequency (50 Hz), an innovative frequency support service has been designed using the BattGrid™ storage system.
With a 1 MW lithium-ion battery, BattGrid™ is connected to the electricity distribution system to store excess electricity and inject it if required into this same system
BattGrid™ offers multiple benefits. It is readily available and easy to operate, and it meets power requirements quicker than conventional generation plants. The battery also means a frequency support service can be offered at a competitive price. Lastly, as it uses already-generated power, it helps reduce the French electricity grid's carbon footprint.
