ESO in cooperation with Ignitis is testing battery storage solutions for connecting new prosumers to the ESO grid.
Batteries will be used to increase allowed feed-in power for prosumers. During the pilot project test of selected battery/inverter manufacturers will be performed. With a successful application of battery storage together with connected PV, DSO would not need to refurbish the existing power grid. Main responsibilities in the project: Ignitis will be responsible for battery selection and installation, ESO - preparation of technical connection request specification, data analysis of the results.
The pilot results will provide information on how and what specifications should be selected when considering new prosumers connections, what alternatives can be provided from the DSO side to the new PV connection.
