Installation of Belgian’s first neighbourhood battery
Elaborate studies were and still are conducted in Belgium with regards to the technical and economic feasibility of neighourhood batteries in our low and medium voltage grid. The effective first implementation was missing. However, in field experience is key to gain understanding in the effective behaviour and interaction with the surrounding system(s) and additionally initiate the needed changes in the enabling framework. Hence the goal was set: in 2014 Th!nk E included the actual implementation of a neighbourhood battery in a proposal for the H2020 EU-project STORY and spring 2018 that part of the work was ready to be kicked off. The focus was on implementing the battery on a weak electricity line.
