EDF Store & Forecast completes its first energy optimization project for an industrial client in Germany
Enlisted by EDF Renewables for its expertise in energy optimization, EDF Store & Forecast recently provided local energy management solutions (EMS) for two industrial sites with the same end user. This constitutes its first project for an industrial customer in Germany.
The two sites are located in Germany; one in Rostock in the north and the other in Heidenau, Saxony. For this project, EDF Store & Forecast kitted out each site with an Energy Management System (EMS) managing a 100 kW–300 kWh battery.
As an additional storage capacity, each battery is managed by its EMS. It controls the discharge of the battery when client consumption peaks, helping reduce pressure on the German electrical grid.
These industrial batteries help the end user to control their electricity bill. By increasing the flexibility of the electrical system, it can also cope with grid congestion, specifically that caused by an increase in the integration of renewable energy sources.
The completed project is EDF Store & Forecast’s first one on German soil. The company demonstrates its ability to adapt to regulatory, pricing, and technical constraints in new markets.
