Battery storage power plants

Battery storage power plants store energy with batteries on an electrochemical basis. In contrast to other storage power plants, such as pumped storage power plants with outputs up to more than 1,000 MW, battery storage power plants achieve between several kW and a few MW. The largest realised systems achieve capacities up to 36 MW. Like all storage power plants, they are primarily used for covering peak loads in grids and, when there is insufficient balancing capacity, for stabilising grids.
