Alfen has been selected by Centrica Business Solutions, a UK energy and services company, as a preferred partner for the supply of sub–10 MW battery energy storage solutions. With this three-year framework agreement, Alfen is expanding its collaboration with Centrica after the recent framework agreement to supply charge points for Centrica and its subsidiary British Gas.
Centrica Business Solutions is continuing to develop energy storage services that exploit the value of batteries for companies looking to ensure on-site resilience, to leverage revenues from ancillary services and to make on-site production more sustainable.
Energy storage systems can be used to optimise energy management, for instance by balancing energy supply and demand or absorbing peak demand.
Yves Vercammen, country manager for Alfen Belgium, commented: “Our collaboration with Centrica Business Solutions started in Belgium. Through this framework agreement, we are now taking the next step by jointly developing the energy storage market across Europe.”
