Alfen has been selected by Centrica Business Solutions as a preferred partner for the supply of sub 10MW battery energy storage solutions. This three-year framework agreement further expands Alfen’s collaboration with Centrica after the recent framework agreement to supply charge points for Centrica and its subsidiary British Gas.
Energy storage systems can be used to optimise energy management. For instance, they can balance energy supply and demand to keep the power grid stable. Additionally, the energy storage system can absorb peak demand and can also make autonomous electricity grids possible in combination with solar and / or wind energy. The energy storage systems are being used by a variety of clients such as utilities, energy traders, EV fast charging service providers and industrials.
Yves Vercammen, country manager Alfen Belgium, adds, “Our collaboration with Centrica Business Solutions started in Belgium. Through this framework agreement, we are now taking the next step by jointly developing the energy storage market across Europe. We are proud to partner with a renowned party such as Centrica and to join hands to realise value-add and innovative service propositions for Centrica’s customers based on our versatile energy storage solutions.”
