March 25, 2024

German municipality-owned electricity distribution network developer Westfalen Weser has been allocated a plot of land in Beverungen for a 120MW / 280 MWh battery storage facility.

The €92 million project is scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2026.

Jürgen Noch, managing director of Westfalen Weser, said: “We are investing in energy storage to ensure a secure and efficient power supply as the generation of renewable energies continues to increase. In the future, we see a variety of other possible uses for energy storage in order to shape the energy transition locally.” Noch added that these possible uses could include independent local energy networks.
