Some worry that as Germany moves towards a total of 33 gigawatts of solar power, the grid might behave more unpredictably. Energy storage then, should be Germany’s superhero.
Germany’s Federal Environment Ministry has a reported grant fund of $65 million, and is due to be launched and the terms introduced on 1 May. The funding is for energy storage systems that will be used with distributed solar installations, given that Germany would have installed a further 775 megawatts of solar in the first quarter of 2013.
If you want to know more about this and other topics directly from end users of energy storage technologies join us at one of these annual events: The Energy Storage World Forum (Grid Scale Applications), or The Residential Energy Storage Forum, or one of our Training Courses.
