A bakery already does not behave like most other grid customers due to its early operating hours, but sometimes that’s not enough to have the grid operator reward its differentness. With a battery storage system installed, the Musswessels bakery is able – even with varying high-load time windows – to react flexibly, to realize atypical network useage without having to set their sights low.
Electricity prices are rising almost continuously and represent one of the main cost factors in the production process for many companies. For optimized electricity procurement and the resulting higher profitability for the commercial customer, we have installed a battery storage system at the Rhede site. Musswessels is a large bakery supplying more than 75 bakery stores and consuming 700 MWh of electricity per year.
The battery storage is installed through a sub-distribution of a technical room of the bakery. In terms of network type, the battery storage is connected in parallel with the supply network. It is connected in parallel to the supply network without the need for significant conversion measures. The system enables atypical grid usage by discharging during periods of high grid utilization and recharging when the supply grid experiences lower loads. This grid-serving behavior facilitates the integration of renewable generation plants and is incentivized by the grid operator through substantial cost reductions. The customer’s production process can continue to operate without restrictions.
Scalability – By using different cabinet sizes, the system can be used flexibly. In addition, several storage cabinets can be coupled so that the overall system can be expanded in a modular way.
