Waregem’s company puts the largest battery park in our country into use

    The battery installation has a capacity of 100 megawatts. That is comparable to 20,000 home batteries. It is the largest installation in our country, an investment of no less than 25 million euros.

    Saving energy

    The batteries store excess power to release it again when there is a lack of energy. “This morning there was a shortage of wind and we were at prices of 640 euros. Later there was an excess of sun and the price dropped to 140 euros. The difference can be covered by this battery,” explains CEO Michel Verschueren.

    The intention is to be able to start using the battery effectively in December.
