Circular battery connected to large Solar Farm 🔋
Octave commissioned a battery cabinet with a storage capacity of 75 kWh on July 19th. The system was entirely designed by Octave and built with battery modules that were originally used in a Porsche Taycan. The modules still hold sufficient usable capacity to deliver excellent performance in this stationary energy storage application.
The battery energy storage system is installed at Terranova Solar - a former gypsum landfill transformed in one of the largest solar farms of the Benelux with an installed capacity of 15MWp. Octave’s battery will create value by increasing the self-consumption of the site, performing reactive power control and taking advantage of arbitrage opportunities with dynamic market prices.
The project was made possible by a number of partners: Bebat and Brussel Leefmilieu contributed to the financing of the design and build of the system while the STEPS programme from Interreg EU with partners Terranova Solar, Flux 50 and POM Oost-Vlaanderen facilitated the implementation of the system.
