Fortum’s vision is to be the forerunner in clean energy. It has a number of key objectives for the BATCAVE R&D project. Primarily, it wants to investigate and evaluate how the effective storage of electricity can help it stay on top of changes in electricity markets as they evolve to accommodate more decentralized and intermittent resources. It is also exploring how to best utilize the battery as part of its energy business, starting with offering frequency controlled power reserves (FCR-N) to Fingrid, Finland’s transmission system operator. Finally, the BATCAVE project will act as an extension of Fortum’s pioneering experiments in which it is building a virtual power plant (VPP) based on demand flexibility.
