Integrating Battery Storage to Secure Europe's Renewable Economy

04 Jun 2019

cyberGRID and Ngen have combined their forces to achieve strides in the next generation of energy storage and demand response. The ambitious plan will bring the Austrian/Slovenian region into the spotlight of European energy system technologies by advancing the technical know-how and commercial success each company brings to the partnership with its products.

The partnership will entail the development of technological solutions to promote the interoperability of batteries and other energy assets to increase the availability and efficient use of flexibilities. Enhanced interoperability is key for enabling non-discriminatory grid access for energy storage, thereby supporting the expansion of battery deployments and charging systems. In the changing power market, this cooperation will help facilitate the next phase of renewable energy integration, energy storage optimization, system and market flexibility and advanced demand response.

“We are excited to enter this pioneering partnership. Our plan demonstrates how much more we can anticipate to see in the near future of technological development in order to ease the process of the energy transition,”  says Marko Svetina, Managing Director at cyberGRID, and Roman Bernard, Managing Director at Ngen.
