2000 home batteries help keep the Belgian electricity system in balance

Riemst, 12 September 2022 – More than 2000 families in Flanders help to maintain the balance in the Belgian electricity grid, via their home battery. 

The charging pattern of their home battery is used to maximise the solar energy generated and to offer it on Elia’s balancing market. That is good not only for a stable electricity grid, but also for consumers who are rewarded for their flexibility, without having to sacrifice any comfort. The technology from Smart E Grid/Opteco has already brought together about 2000 home batteries in one single project. They form what is currently one of the largest battery-powered virtual power plants.
