The two 50 kW / 400 kWh batteries mark the company’s first deployments in Europe, setting the stage for active market development on the continent.
The EW energy storage systems will be shipped to BASF, the world’s leading chemical company, which also recently made a significant investment in ESS. “We are pleased to receive orders from companies like BASF, and to establish our footprint in the European market,” said Craig Evans, founder and CEO of ESS Inc. “The purchase of these systems shows the industry’s confidence in our technology and our business. We look forward to continued collaboration with BASF, and to serving other major clients in the exciting European market.”
“Taking delivery of two ESS Energy Warehouse systems will create a working relationship that will enable us to gain first-hand experience with the technology,” said Olaf Rogge, Head of Sales and Marketing Energy Storage, BASF New Business. “We look forward to collaborating on energy storage applications and learnings in the future.”
