Energy storage for the power grid

In the LeMoStore joint project, scientific and industrial cooperation partners under the leadership of KIT are developing a grid-integrated solution for a stable power supply with renewable energies.

Flexibly combining different energy storage technologies and connecting the battery modules to the power grid via a grid-friendly inverter - this is the concept of the LeMoStore project. In the newly launched joint project, the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) is cooperating with partners from science and industry. LeMoStore aims at a maximum service life of the battery modules and a stable power supply with a high share of renewable energies. The German Federal Ministry of Economics is funding LeMoStore with around 1.7 million euros.
