Here we go now!

On September 16 WEMAG and Younicos will commission Europe's first commercial Battery Power Plant

Welcome to a new chapter in the transition to a renewables-based energy economy: On September 16 - after just twelve months of construction and a four month trial run - we are officially taking Europe's first commercial battery power plant online. With a rated power of 5 megawatts and a capacity of 5 megawatt hours, the intelligent unit in Schwerin will stabilize the grid frequency in windy West Mecklenburg.

In a first for Europe, our fully automated and intelligent battery park will be operated commercially. It will earn its keep by providing so-called primary control power - while also freeing space on the grid for more wind and solar energy.
