PGE Group launched the first energy storage facility in Poland using Tesla Powerpack to ensure the reliability of the local distribution network. The project was the start of a long-term energy storage program for the PGE Group, as stated in their new strategy.
The power plant, with a capacity of about 2.1 MW/4.2 MWh, was designed to ensure the reliability of the local distribution network in Rzepedz. The container stationary energy storage was created as part of a project for innovative network services that improve the quality and reliability of power supply, implemented by PGE Polska Grupa Energetyczna in cooperation with PGE Dystrybucja, using Tesla's advanced Powerpack energy storage devices.

The Rzepedz energy storage facility is PGE Group's first investment in Central and Eastern Europe to use Tesla's energy storage solutions in the local power grid. Tesla's Powerpack will provide flexible operation of the power grid and increase renewable energy connectivity, the company said. In line with the new strategy, the group plans to build at least 800 MW of new energy storage units by 2030. Investing in Rzepedz is the first step towards achieving this goal. Further projects are already in the planning stage.
The company has submitted an application for clarification of the technical conditions for connecting to the network of the electricity storage facility in Żarnowiec with a capacity of 205 MW/820 MWh. What energy storage solutions will be used for this project is still unknown.
