Switzerland-based energy company MET Group will install a 4-MW/8-MWh Tesla Megapack battery at the Dunamenti power plant in Szazhalombatta, Hungary.
The company announced this recently, saying it will be the first to deploy a Megapack battery in the country. The project will be implemented next summer and is expected to pave the way for more efficient system integration of renewable energy producers.
“The future is carbon-free, meaning even the gas-fired power plants providing network flexibility have to be carbon-free as much as possible. The experimental project, based on energy storage, will be a prototype for industrial-quantity applications,” said Peter Horvath, CEO of Dunamenti Power Plant.
