Statkraft has been awarded the contract for a solar-battery project in Zerbst in Germany’s Saxony-Anhalt region. The 47MW solar park will be co-located with a 16MW battery to provide short-term flexibility to the energy system. Statkraft won the project as part of the Federal Network Agency’s innovation tender.
The federal authority had tendered a total of 400MW of output for the innovation tender in May 2023. Statkraft’s project is on the site of a former gravel pit. “The construction of co-location facilities using solar energy and battery storage is part of our ambitious growth targets in Germany,” said Claus Urbanke, Head of German wind, solar and storage development at Statkraft. Statkraft has already started the tendering process for selected plant components ahead of operation in mid-2025.
