Renewables developer Trianel Energieprojekte GmbH & Co. KG (TEP) has begun the deployment of 60 MWp of solar power across Germany as part of four projects that include the installation of a battery at each site.
The four energy storage facilities will have a combined capacity of 40 MWh, municipal utility Trianel said on Friday.
The hybrid systems are being built in the federal states of Saxony-Anhalt, Baden-Wuerttemberg and Brandenburg.
The 12-MW Luebars II solar park in Saxony-Anhalt has been already completed and will supply 4,000 households with green electricity. A battery of 8 MWh will be installed at the site in August.
The construction of the 19-MWp Gammertingen solar park in Baden-Wuerttemberg is set to begin in July. The commissioning of the solar park and the storage facility is planned for February 2024.
In Brandenburg, Trianel will break the ground on the 13-MWp Letschin solar farm and a 9-MWh battery storage system in June.
Preparations for construction are in full swing for the fourth project, which will include a 16-MWp solar plant at the Goehlsdorf site in Brandenburg. With the building permit now obtained, construction work is scheduled to commence in July.
Trianel secured the four projects in Germany’s innovation tenders.
