Advanced lead batteries support clean and green energy supply for millions in Germany

Advanced lead batteries support clean and green energy supply for millions in Germany

More than two million people in Europe are using secure electricity from renewables supported by advanced lead battery energy storage technology.

Narada Power Source, a leading player in energy storage globally and a member of the Consortium for Battery Innovation is pioneering a number of innovative lead battery energy storage projects worldwide.

With the inauguration of a 25 MWh frequency power regulation project in Germany last year supporting the power grid, Narada’s lead-carbon battery technology helps provide secure electricity for more than 2 million people in the country.

The Consortium for Battery Innovation works with members such as Narada to develop research and funding for innovative renewable energy storage projects. Further example of such projects can be found here.

Narada is supporting innovative programmes in Europe and China with large energy storage projects. In Wuxi, Narada’s innovative lead-carbon technology powers the largest battery energy storage system (BESS) for a consumer project in the world. They provide peak load shifting and demand response services for an industrial zone, allowing economic progress to flourish whilst combined with clean energy.

In Zhenjiang, Narada supports the largest containerized commercial BESS for a consumer project in China. By relieving the pressure on power supply in the summer and the peak load of the grid, Narada enables this system to provide 20MW of power and an energy capacity of 160 MWh.

In addition, through their membership of the Consortium, which promotes innovation and funding to develop the next generation of advanced lead batteries for applications such as energy storage, Narada’s current research project aims to optimise the performance of lead batteries for applications such as frequency regulation.

The results of this exciting work will be presented at the Consortium for Battery Innovation workshop scheduled for 5-6 March in Shanghai, China.
