PSW partners with Ellevio Energy Solution for grid-scale battery storage

One of Sweden’s largest utility companies Ellevio Energy Solutions AB, part of Ellevio AB, has selected PSW Power & Automation`s BQ-G grid-scale battery to provide Fast Frequency Reserve (FFR), a control technology that can handle the fluctuations in the Nordic grid and enable very fast response times (<700ms).

Sweden’s new electricity generation comes from wind power; however, electricity generated from renewables can be highly variable. To solve this grid imbalance PSW Power & Automation has developed a solution that provides stability in the power grid.

PSW`s BQ-G is a modular energy storage system that can, in addition to providing fast response, be used for other grid services and/or energy trading.

“We are honoured to be the trusted supplier to Ellevio Energy Solutions AB. We see this BQ-G solution, with a capacity of 1,1MWh, as the beginning of a long-lasting collaboration and together we will bring high quality electrical solutions to several segments,” says Eirik Sørensen, General Manager in PSW Power & Automation.

Sweden expects to more than double its electricity consumption over the next 25 years and has set itself ambitious goals by reaching net-zero emissions by 2045.

“A key part in our Ellevio Energy Solutions business and overall value proposition is that we together with a few trusted strategic partners, as PSW, can deliver complex and tailored customer solutions in safe, cost efficient and customer centric way”, says Kristofer Fröjd SVP Strategy & Business Development at Ellevio.

PSW Power & Automation is already established in Sweden with deliveries such as energy storage solutions, megawatt charging and shore power to this market.
