    Dutch Giga Storage taps Belgian market with 1,200-MWh battery plan

    September 29, 2023 - SeeNews Renewables


      September 29 (Renewables Now) - Netherlands-based energy storage developer Giga Storage intends to install a 1,200-MWh battery system in Belgium, near the Dutch border, in what it will be its first project beyond its home country.

      The company unveiled its plan for the large-scale project on Wednesday without giving details about the proposed investment.

      The battery energy storage facility is set to be built in Kinrooi municipality, in the Belgian province of Limburg located just across the border from the Dutch town of Weert. The system will be hooked to the high-voltage grid and help stabilise the electricity network.

      The project has been presented to the local community at an information session, with the next step being to submit an environmental permit application.

      Commenting on the project Giga Storage’s CEO Ruud Nijs said: "This project is of a similar scale to our Dutch project in Delfzijll. However, developments in Belgium are progressing faster since batteries in Belgium are largely exempt from transmission network costs.”

      Giga Storage’s plan is to have 3 GW of battery energy storage capacity in Belgium by the end of the decade. Under the local regulations, battery parks are free of transmission network charges for 10 years and are not required to pay excise duties.
