Alfen supplied an energy storage system (BESS) to TrønderEnergi, one of the biggest grid operators in Norway. The BESS has a capacity of 548kWh and can be deployed for different cases.
The battery energy storage system was placed at an agricultural company. It offers peak shaving and off-grid services for the current energy system consisting of a wind turbine and solar panels.
Other 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 harbours to provide clean onshore electricity for boats.
