olls-Royce has delivered six of a total of eight mtu EnergyPacks to Vispiron, the southern German provider of sustainable mobility and energy solutions. The battery storage systems have largely been commissioned in solar parks in Bavaria and Thuringia in Germany and are used for so-called intraday trading – the short-term purchase and sale of electricity delivered on the same day. Intraday trading is particularly important for absorbing unpredictable changes in electricity production and demand caused by the volatile feed-in of renewable energy sources such as solar and wind.
“With regard to increasingly volatile electricity markets, battery storage can be used to profitably market storage capacity while having a stabilizing effect on our power grids,”
said Florian Schönberger, CTO of Vispiron Energy GmbH & Co. KG.
One of the decisive factors for Vispiron to cooperate with the Rolls-Royce Power Systems was that the mtu EnergyPacks are fully integrable, modular systems, which are available with power ratings from 60 kVA to 2000 kVA and storage capacities from 70 kWh to 2200 kWh.
