      EV Battery Systems Able to Kick-Start Large Power Plants

      Transmission system operator TenneT and Daimler subsidiary Mercedes-Benz Energy have joined forces in a development partnership to see whether EV batteries could stabilize large grids. The result: Automobile battery storage systems can indeed make a significant contribution to grid stabilization and system reconstruction. The researchers have shown that automobile battery storage systems “can help to compensate for the loss of conventional energy generation,” should the electrical grid fail for some reason. By kick-starting the energy grid with the additional stationary energy storage, fluctuations can be dampened and frequency deviations covered.
