Spare parts store for electric vehicle batteries connects to the grid.

Partners Daimler AG – via its wholly owned subsidiary Mercedes-Benz Energy GmbH – and enercity (Stadtwerke Hannover AG) have commissioned one of the largest battery storage systems in Europe after about a one-year construction phase. The innovative storage system serves a particular purpose: it is a “living spare parts store” for electromotive battery systems. A total of 3,240 battery modules have been reserved for the third-generation smart electric-drive vehicle fleet. 1,800 of these have been combined into a stationary storage system at enercity’s Herrenhausen site and prequalified by the competent transmission system operator (TSO) TenneT for providing primary operating reserves (POR). The system is currently providing 5 MW of power to the energy market. Completion of the whole system with a total storage capacity of 17.4 MWh is planned for the first quarter of 2018.
