Design and implementation of a Battery Energy Storage System of 1MWh of capacity in Cape Verde
Cape Verde is undertaking a pilot project on batteries energy storage for Renewable Integration.
Mercados – Aries International participated in the Project performing the following services:

  • System and Grid Modelling and dynamic studies of the distribution network of Cape Verde.
  • Identification of integration and operation constrains.
  • Determination of the maximum renewable energy sources integration capacity.
  • Short and long term enhancement requirements.
  • Battery sizing assessment based on RES installed capacity, characteristics and historical production variation analysis.
  • Technical specification development and procurement of a Grid-connected Battery Pilot in the island to deal with RES variations, system quality, and to minimize the RES curtailments (Multi-application battery).
  • Management and Supervision of the battery pilot implementation and commissioning
