Grand opening of Alfen’s mega energy storage system in Czech Republic

17/12/2017

At solar farm Prakšice, Solar Global and Alfen opened the first battery energy storage system (BESS) in Czech Republic. The battery system has a capacity of 1.2 MWh and will be used to balance the fluctuating supply of solar energy with demand patterns. The energy storage system was officially taken into use by the Dutch ambassador Mr. Klompenhouwer.

Solar Global develops and services solar photovoltaic (PV) farms and rooftop PV installations, and currently has some 100 MW capacity under service. "The battery system will accumulate energy from the sun to be available when there is a lack of power in the grid and electricity needs to be released." says Vítězslav Skopal, the main shareholder and founder of the Solar Global Group.
