With 30 new mobile battery energy storage systems from Alfen, Greener is scaling up to become the world’s largest emission-free mobile power provider
Greener, the clean energy provider for grid-edge and off-grid situations, orders 30 new mobile battery energy storage systems from Alfen, specialist in energy solutions for the future. The mobile storage systems will be deployed to provide a green emission-free alternative for temporary and polluting diesel generators throughout Europe.
Each mobile storage system has a capacity of 338kWh and is based on BMW i3 car batteries. The storage systems are equipped with standard power connectors allowing for easy plug-and-play integration at temporary project and remote locations. Greener provides smart batteries and data-driven energy management software services to events, construction sites, transformer substation maintenance, EV charging hubs and grid-boosting & balancing.
Alfen delivered its first mobile storage system to Greener in 2018. During the summer of 2019 another 12 systems were supplied to allow for further scale-up and broader roll-out. International festivals and events such as Awakenings (Netherlands), Tomorrowland (Belgium) and Winter Wonderland (UK) were supplied with green battery power. In addition, pilots with Alfen partners such as Van Der Leun have been initiated and new applications, such as the use of battery power in the maritime sector for emission free cruising, have been rolled-out.
With this new order of 30 mobile storage systems, Greener will deploy a fleet of 43 mobile storage systems with an aggregate capacity of close to 15MWh, which is more than the Netherlands’ largest storage system.
Dieter Castelein Co-Founder at Greener says: “With this new order we will deploy the largest fleet of mobile battery storage systems in the world. We are now ready to provide a truly unique and large-scale solution for many of today’s challenges around carbon and nitrogen emissions. Our mobile batteries offer an emission-free and silent alternative for diesel generators at events in cities, festivals, construction sites and the maritime sector. In Alfen we have found a strong partner that is capable of supporting us with our innovative solutions. This positions us well to benefit from a rapidly growing demand for our green power solutions.”
Andreas Plenk, Business Unit Director Energy Storage at Alfen, says: “We are very proud with this new order from Greener. With our transportable storage system that has been specifically developed for temporary locations, Greener can offer a unique emission-free solution to their customers and contribute to a better environment. The scale they are now bringing to the market can make a true difference and make noisy and polluting diesel generators something of the past.”
The new storage systems will be delivered prior to the festival season of 2020.
