The battery storage project in Doberlug-Kirchhain has a capacity of 6.9 MW with a gross storage capacity of 7.6 MWh. Battery cells from LG Chem are used. The battery storage system is used to provide system services (in particular primary control power), as well as to generate revenue from optimization on the spot market and from avoided network charges (§ 18 StromNEV) and is connected to the grid of Mitteldeutsche Netzgesellschaft Strom mbH. The battery storage system will be completed and commissioned in 2022.
The owner and operator of the facility is Pelion Green Future (Pelion), an independent investment holding company that aims to actively shape the energy transition. Pelion operates along the entire energy value chain. In doing so, the investment focus is divided into three areas: Pelion invests in fast-growing publicly traded independent power producers (IPPs), establishes joint ventures with experienced developers and asset managers that develop, own and operate green infrastructure, and makes strategic investments in technology companies that help optimize and manage energy infrastructure and distribution.
"Pelion sees great opportunities in the German storage market. Technological advances in battery cells as well as potential for cost reduction through market scaling open up an attractive business case. These factors are reinforced by Germany's legally binding commitment to achieve net zero by 2045," says Jan Krüger, Managing Director of Pelion.
On Obton's way to the first battery investments, the dedicated Kyon Energy team impressed me in several ways: The projects were perfectly developed, the data room for the project review perfectly organized. The thoroughness of the work also stood out in the due diligence process - no question was left unanswered. Kyon Energy is a pleasure to work with. "
The energy transition is one of the greatest challenges of our time. In this context, the expansion of storage capacities is a cornerstone for an energy supply from renewable and independent energy sources. Kyon Energy creates exactly these capacities and stabilizes and relieves the power grid in the process."
