September 29, 2023

GIGA Storage Belgium is planning to develop a 1,200MWh energy storage project in Kinrooi, Belgium close to the Netherlands border town of Weert. 

GIGA Storage Belgium has said it aims to deploy 3GW of battery storage in Belgium by 2030.

The company is in the process of submitting a planning application for the project.

Joeri Siborgs, general manager of GIGA Storage Belgium, said:“This project represents a major advancement for Belgium. We already have informed the local residents of this new projectduring an information session to explain our plans.”

Ruud Nijs, CEO of GIGA Storage, said: “We have been active in energy storage in the Netherlands for several years. It’s great to see that momentum is now building in Belgium as well. This project is of a similar scale to our Dutch project in Delfzijll. However, developments in Belgium are progressing faster since batteries in Belgium are largely exempt from transmission network costs.”
