Integration of district-level electrical storage (600 kWh) into solar plant and electric vehicle (EV) charging system
An innovative district-level electrical storage system has been integrated into the existing solar plant and EV charging network as part of mySMARTLife. The facility consists of about 15,000 lithium-ion battery cells, which can temporarily store the electricity generated by the solar power plants in Suvilahti (340 kWp) and in Kivikko (850 kWp) operated by the energy company Helen. The rated power output is 1.2 MWs and its energy capacity 600 kWh. New business models and energy products are being developed and promoted. Multiuser applications will be demonstrated in reserve power, peak power shaving, and energy time shifting as well as voltage support.
