A battery project south of the Danish-German border is now subject to harsh criticism from a professor, who believes that heat pumps should be used instead, reports Danish industry media Ingeniøren.
The project by Dutch energy company Eneco and Japanese battery supplier Mitsubishi Corporation comprises a battery of 48 MW next to a transformer station. The idea is that the battery will be used when there are fluctuations in the production of renewable energy, while it will be charged with electricity from a nearby wind farm when prices are low. Brian Vad Mathiesen, Professor specialized in energy planning at Denmark's Aalborg University, tells Ingeniøren that he finds the solution to be a relic of the past as the cost would be transferred to electricity consumers.
