New 100 MW large battery storage project from Kyon Energy in North Rhine-Westphalia

- New large-scale battery storage project in Dahlem, NRW approved
- Project provides 100 MW storage capacity and 200 MWh storage capacity for the German power grid
- Implementation planned by the end of 2026

Munich, March 04, 2024. Kyon Energy continues to expand storage capacities in Germany. The Munich-based project development company for large battery storage systems has received approval for another storage project, this time in North Rhine-Westphalia. The planned storage plant will be built in Dahlem and provide a storage capacity of 100 megawatts and a storage capacity of at least 200 megawatt hours. In the past four months, Kyon Energy has already announced the implementation of new storage projects with a total of 237.5 MW/507 MWh in Germany. Construction of the new plant in Dahlem is planned to start in the third quarter of 2025, with commissioning to follow by the end of 2026. With this project, Kyon Energy is setting another milestone in strengthening the energy storage infrastructure in this country.

For Dahlem Mayor Jan Lembach, in addition to the 21 existing wind turbines, the battery storage system is another element for the long-term supply of renewable energy: “We are thus setting standards in the region and NRW and have already more than fulfilled our mandate as a small municipality in the energy transition,” he says.

“Large battery storage systems are key players in the transformation of our energy infrastructure. They massively expand the potential for sustainable energy generation and are crucial for grid stability and accelerating the energy transition,” says Florian Antwerpen, one of the managing directors of Kyon Energy.

Battery storage systems are an essential part of the energy revolution — they absorb excess energy from the power grid and feed it back into the system as needed. Once completed, the storage facility in Dahlem will also make a significant contribution to stabilizing and making the local power grid more flexible and promote the supply of electricity from renewable energy sources.
