Alfen selected by TronderEnergi to deliver energy storage system in Norway
Alfen is selected by TrønderEnergi, one of the largest utility and grid operators in Norway, to deliver a battery energy storage system (BESS). The BESS has a capacity of 548 kWh and can be deployed for different use cases. Initially, the BESS will be located at an agricultural business, providing peakshaving and off-grid services for the existing energy system of a wind turbine and solar PV.
Other use cases that will be explored in the future are combining the BESS with charging infrastructure for electric vehicles, back-up power for islands, grid balancing in rural areas and using the BESS in harbors to provide clean onshore power for boats.
Bernhard Kvaal, Senior Project Manager at TrønderEnergi comments: “We selected Alfen because of their proven technology and vast experience across storage applications as well as their local presence in the Nordics.”
Stephanie Schockaert, Sales Manager Energy Storage at Alfen adds: “We are proud to be serving this innovative company that seeks to deploy our storage system throughout various applications. We are also proud to deliver our first storage system in the Nordics after the acquisition of Elkamo in Finland last year.”
