Battery & Hybrid Energy Systems

Hybrid Energy Projects Stand-Alone Batteries Best Practice Examples Contact

ABO Energy develops and constructs stand-alone battery storage systems as well as hybrid energy systems that link battery storage with wind and/or solar plants. Batteries are an important building block of the energy transition, as they stabilise electricity grids and enable a faster expansion of renewable energies.

Hybrid- and

Flexible storage systems optimally complement renewable energy systems. In times of high electricity production (especially from renewable energies), they charge electricity and feed it back into the grid at times of high demand.

Pioneer for Battery Energy Storage

ABO Energy takes over all steps of project development and construction of battery energy storage systems (BESS) and works closely with landowners, municipalities, grid operators and renowned battery manufacturers. In Germany, ABO Energy is an industry leader in the so-called innovation tenders for hybrid projects awarded by the Federal Network Agency.

Hybrid Projects Combine Different Technologies

ABO Energy combines wind, solar and battery storage systems at one location. The generation profiles of wind and solar energy, for example, complement each other very well: In this way, the fluctuating electricity generation from renewable energies is stabilised and becomes more base-load capable. An additional battery storage system can decouple the timing of electricity generation from the feed-in to the grid. In this way, hybrid projects smooth out fluctuations in renewable energy generation and stabilise the electricity grid. ABO Energy is working at various locations around the world to implement hybrid energy projects.


Stand-Alone Batteries

ABO Energy has already developed and constructed several stand-alone batteries. Large battery storage units at grid nodes fulfil important functions in today's electricity grids: They charge electrical energy when there is a power surplus in the grid and feed it in when there is a shortage. For electricity grid operators, battery storage systems can also provide important electrical services for frequency and voltage maintenance. In this way, battery storage stabilises the electricity grid and makes an important contribution to supply and system security.
