    RWE to build 35-MW Dutch battery to help integrate offshore wind

    September 21, 2023 - SeeNews Renewables


      September 21 (Renewables Now) - RWE AG (ETR:RWE) has made an investment decision to install a 35-MW/41-MWh battery at its biomass plant in Eemshaven in the Netherlands.

      The German energy group said on Thursday it will invest EUR 24 million (USD 25.7m) in the project, which is part of creating a portfolio of innovative demand assets intended to better integrate the generation of the OranjeWind offshore wind project.

      In 2022, RWE won the right to build the wind farm with a system integration concept that combines the wind facility with green hydrogen production and other solutions like battery storage. The company recently agreed a grid connection for the offshore wind project with a capacity of almost 800 MW.

      Construction of the battery will start late this year, with the system to supply control energy from 2025. It will be virtually coupled with RWE power plants in the Netherlands.

      RWE noted that with the increasing share of renewables, demand for flexible battery storage is also increasing. The company targets building over 3 GW of batteries by 2030.
