500 kWh Lithium-Ion battery for German utility grid

500 kWh Lithium-Ion battery for German utility grid

August, 2016

The above picture represents the lithium-Ion battery system that will be used in Germany to manage peak shaving, frequency regulation for utility grid.

An extended version of 1MWh will allow primary reserve service in an European country.

The battery is based on PowerRack Systems with BMSMatrix® technology inside. BMSMatrix® is smart battery management systems, with high flexibility and scalability features. This technology is able to manage batteries from 2.5kWh up to more than one MWh, from 48V to 1024VDC.

PowerTech Systems joins Netfficient consortium


July, 2015


PowerTech Systems is proud to announce its active participation in Netfficient project within H2020 program. It was established and funded by the European Community.

Netfficient consortium

The project “Energy and economic efficiency for today’s smart communities through integrated multi storage technologies” has been favorably evaluated. the European Commission ranked it #1 out of 58 with an excellent score both for scientific and socio-economic impacts. The project is a Horizon 2020 innovation action involving 13 European partners. This, among enterprises and research centers, led by Ayesa Advanced Technologies (Spain).

Lithium-Ion energy storage systems design

As part of this participation, PowerTech Systems will design local, medium and large scale Lithium-Ion energy storage systems. As, energy storage is the backbone of Netfficient project, several scenarios will be realized:

  • Medium voltage Lithium-Ion battery for Peak Shaving management
  • Lithium-Ion energy storage for 40 self sufficient homes
  • Energy storage for large scale building
  • Energy storage for street lighting
  • Advanced system management and communication with smart-grid core system

In total, PowerTech Systems will be responsible for deploying Lithium ion battery systems. Indeed it represents approximately two MegaWatt hour on the German island of Borkum.
