In the latest expansion of its battery storage capacity, Axpo will build a 20MW/20MWh facility in Sweden to deliver services to the grid in 2024, it was announced today. Axpo acquired the project from developers RES, a global renewable energy company, and Scandinavian Capacity Reserve (SCR). The lithium-ion based facility will be built in Landskrona and connected to the grid by local energy company Landskrona Energi.
Axpo will build a 20MW/20MWh lithium-ion based battery storage facility in the south of Sweden, which will become operational in 2024. The project was developed by RES and SCR and acquired by Axpo on 9 March 2023.
The new battery energy storage system will be used in the Landskrona region to provide ancillary services to help balance the grid and will be connected by local energy supplier Landskrona Energi. Following the sale, RES will support Axpo with the provision of construction management, asset management and operation and maintenance services.
Axpo Group Head of Batteries & Hybrid Systems, Frank Amend, said, “We are looking forward to realising this project in Sweden with RES and working with Landskrona Energi. Axpo aims to develop a substantial volume of storage capacity in Europe by 2030, and this project is an important step in our journey.”
