Three months after start of construction, the topping-out ceremony for the 10 MW battery storage facility in Bordesholm was celebrated on September 12th. The excellent collaboration between RES (Renewable Energy Systems Ltd) and the utility VBB has made a significant contribution to the smooth construction progress in reaching thisimportant project milestone. The modern and highly efficient battery storage system will provide grid stabilisation and back-up power – fed from 100% renewable energy to the community when there is grid disruption or upstream grid failure.
During the traditional topping-out ceremony Frank Günther, Managing Director of VBB said, "My thanks to all those who have worked on this construction. We are considerably closer to our vision of an independent and regenerative future of electricity supply in Germany - andultimately worldwide. We have the local energy production and distribution in our hands. With this battery project, we will give an insight into the future of a digital and innovative energy world, which ensures an efficient and stable power supply with renewable energy alone."
Energy storage systems are the key technology of the future
Thanks to innovative and intelligent controls developed in-house at RES, battery storage is much more efficient than traditional system services using conventional coal or nuclear energy. The battery can respond within milliseconds to ensure the balance between production and consumption. "For the widespread use of renewable energy, the energy market and energy-intensive companies need a reliable technology that guarantees the security of supply and providesflexibility at the same time. Therefore, energy storage units will play a major role in our electricity network", emphasises Matthias Leuthold, Head of Energy Storage for RES in Germany. "This project particularly distinguishes the testing of the black start capability and the possibility of operating as a local island grid", adds Leuthold.
The emergence of the battery storage in Bordesholm
So far, the foundations, the solid construction, the carpentry and roof of the 450 m² building have been erected. The electrical installation for the lithium-ion storage facility, with a capacity of 15 megawatt hours, will now follow. For this purpose, a total of more than one kilometre of 20kV medium-voltage cable, as well as over three kilometres of 1kV cable will be laid. Another highlight of the construction phase is the installation of the 180 battery racks with a weight of 750 kg each – this is the heart of the entire battery storage system and the commissioning is planned for the beginning of next year.

20MW Broxburn energy contributes to £200m National Grid saving
The modernisation of Scotland’s energy network has taken a giant leap forward with the official opening of the country’s first utility-scale battery facility - a crucial element to maximise the use of renewables.
Seen as a key enabler in the transition towards a cleaner energy future, the commissioning of the 20MW battery storage facility in West Lothian represents a milestone in helping Scotland meet its decarbonisation goals.
Built and managed by RES and owned by The Renewables Infrastructure Group (TRIG), the Broxburn Energy Storage facility provides services to National Grid. It charges when there is excess capacity – or ‘too much’ power – on the Grid. This energy will be saved for periods of peak demand, helping balance the National Grid network.
These types of enhanced frequency response projects are anticipated to save the National Grid £200m, which in turn means lower costs to the end consumer.
Scotland’s Minister for Trade, Investment and Innovation, Ivan McKee, will tour the Broxburn Energy Storage project today.
He said: “I am very pleased to have the chance to open the Broxburn Energy Storage project today, which is Scotland’s first sub-second response energy storage project. A welcome addition to Scotland’s low carbon energy system, projects such as this one can increase system flexibility and create opportunities for the further decarbonisation of Scotland’s economy.”
As well as being the largest battery storage facility in Scotland, it is also the fastest – being able to respond in times of national need in mere milliseconds.
Rachel Ruffle, RES’ Managing Director, said: “Energy storage can play a large role in supporting the transition to a secure, low carbon, low cost energy system. The use of energy storage will allow for a greater penetration of renewables and can avoid costly grid upgrades – leading to cost benefits for all consumers.
“We believe that this project will play an important role in demonstrating this and will encourage policy makers and regulators to accelerate the removal of barriers to wider deployment of energy storage in the UK.”
Richard Crawford, Director, Infrastructure at InfraRed Capital Partners, investment manager for TRIG, said: “This is an exciting day for us. Broxburn is our first investment in battery storage and also one of the UK’s first utility scale batteries. As the installed base of renewables generation continues to increase, energy storage infrastructure projects like Broxburn are becoming increasingly important in balancing intermittent generation and in turn delivering a better service and cost to consumers.”
Livingston based NRS Group were the main civils contractor during the £1.5m construction phase. The facility is managed 24-hours a day using RES’ RESolve operating system from the company’s Control Centre in Glasgow.

Renewable Energy Systems (RES), a leader in the development, engineering, and construction of wind, solar, transmission, and energy storage projects in the Americas is pleased to announce the company has been selected by CPS Energy to construct an innovative solar and energy storage project to be located at 9800 W. Commerce in San Antonio, Texas. RES was selected through a competitive request for proposal (RFP) and has been awarded the engineering, procurement, construction, and maintenance of the facilities. Construction will begin in October 2018 with commercial operation in May 2019.
The CPS Energy solar and energy storage systems consist of 5 MWAC of distributed solar capacity co-located with a 10 MW/10 MWh RESolve lithium-ion Battery Energy Storage System (BESS). This project takes an innovative approach in combining distributed solar generation with strategically sized and configured electrochemical energy storage, with both technologies interconnected at distribution voltage on a common feeder. Once operational, the system will allow for peak mid-day solar production to be stored and injected onto the grid in late afternoon and early evening, resulting in reduced reliance of fossil fuel generators to meet peak demand during these periods. This represents a scalable approach to meeting peak system electrical demand with lower emissions and increased flexibility. The project is among the first co-located solar and storage projects interconnected at the distribution level within the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT), and represents the 21st energy storage project for RES globally.
“RES is excited to partner with CPS Energy to construct a solar and energy storage project,” says Tom Duckett, RES Executive Vice President. “Having 3 GW of wind and 238 MW of solar already constructed or under construction in the state, this will mark RES’ first energy storage project in Texas and will utilize RES’ industry leading energy storage control platform, RESolve.”
“This is an important project that brings together solar and energy storage whose combination is a key enabler to achieve a zero emissions portfolio,” said Cris Eugster, CPS Energy Chief Operating Officer, “The project aligns with our Flexible Path strategy and gives us the opportunity to learn how to integrate these new technologies into our electric grid.”
As a leader in developing alternative energy and battery technologies, Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) will host the solar and energy storage systems on its 1,200-acre campus and help showcase the site as an example of energy innovation. “As beneficial as the site will be to the city’s energy future, SwRI will also benefit by leveraging the facility to become even more active in the grid-scale energy storage industry, and to work with battery suppliers and component manufacturers,” said Daniel Stewart, Vice President of the SwRI Powertrain Engineering Division.
Groundbreaking activities for the location in the highly visible Highway 151 corridor are tentatively scheduled for the fall of this year with commercial operation commencing by summer of 2019.
