Largest Battery in Europe

July, 2018

After eight months of construction, the Dutch energy supplier Eneco and Mitsubishi Corporation opened the largest battery in Europe on May 31, 2018. Located in Jardelund, Schleswig-Holstein, the “EnspireME” battery will supply reserve capacity to the European electricity grid to guarantee its 50-hertz frequency. With a capacity of 48 MW and around 10,000 lithium-ion batteries, it can store power for some 5,300 German households for a 24-hour period.
