MET Group picks Tesla Megapack for battery energy storage project
MET Group is set to become the first to install a Megapack battery in Hungary next summer, as part of the innovation project being implemented at the gas-fired Dunamenti Power Plant, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
Similarly to MET Group, actors in the energy sector are reporting increasingly ambitious sustainability measures worldwide, and power plants producing renewable energy are being installed at an increasingly fast rate. As production is weather-dependent and therefore unpredictable, equipment that provides flexibility and energy-saving solutions plays a key role in balancing supply and demand.
The close to 4 MW (maximum performance) and 8 MWh (storage capacity) Tesla Megapack has a two-hour duration time. As a result, this provides a possibility for more efficient system integration of renewable energy producers.
The contracted investment project will be one of the key elements of MET Groups’s R&D project launched in April 2021, the press release notes. The experimental project, based on energy storage, will be a prototype for industrial-quantity applications.
