Audi takes 1.9 MWh battery storage into operation

Recommended Posts

Audi has opened a stationary battery storage facility on the Euref campus in Berlin. It uses used lithium-ion batteries from development vehicles and offers an output of 1.9 megawatt hours.

 

 

With around 110 square meters of storage with second-life batteries on the Euref campus, Audi is working with The Mobility House to test grid integration of the future. The capacity of 1.9 megawatt hours of storage would be enough to supply the entire office and science campus with electricity for just under two hours. 

The battery storage should also serve as a buffer for fast charging stations in the immediate vicinity, can charge at the electric cars with up to 175 kilowatts. The storage unit compensates for grid fluctuations through intelligent integration into the power grid and can absorb surplus electricity from wind power and photovoltaic systems or the campus's own cogeneration plant.

The high proportion of renewable energy with unstable power generation in the Berlin area is well suited to the development of intelligent charging control. In a pilot project with wind farms in Brandenburg and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the project partners want to show how surplus electricity can be cached on the Euref campus.
