CNets subsidiary Checkwatt provides the energy management system (EMS) for a 1MWh battery storage in Varberg. The system handles communication and control of the battery storage on site. This Container sized unit is the first step of a larger battery warehouse that is planned to be operational by 2023. CheckWatt’s cooperation partner Solkompaniet delivers and installs the main battery. A platform from Ntricity handles trades with Svenska Kraftnät.
Varberg Energi wants to develop and offer new services to customers. The battery warehouse is an investment to complement the existing energy system to strengthen the power balance and grid stability in general and to make the energy system more flexible and sustainable.
