Corre Energy inks deal with Eneco to develop energy storage project in Germany

Corre Energy has entered into partnership with Eneco to develop Compressed Air Energy Storage (CAES) project in Germany.


The duo has already inked an agreement for offtake, co-development and co-investment of the Ahaus project.


According to the companies, Eneco will acquire a 50% interest in the project including both development capital and construction equity. This is Eneco’s second agreement with Corre Energy.


In the first phase, the “project will use the first two of the site’s four existing salt caverns to deploy Corre Energy’s multiday CAES solution to deliver 220MW of compression capacity and 320MW of generation capacity,” the company said.


It has been informed that the construction of all four caverns is underway.


Earlier, Corre Energy had inked a collaboration and agreed to use equipment of Siemens Energy. Now, Eneco will secure the entire storage capacity under a long-term offtake agreement for the first phase project.


Keith McGrane, chief executive of Corre Energy, was quoted in a statement, "This landmark agreement combines offtake, development and co-investment arrangements to propel our first German project while showcasing the latest demand for our CAES solution.”


He further stated, "By locking in long-term investment partnerships such as in Germany, we are accelerating the commercial development of our portfolio underpinned by long-term offtake arrangements.”


Similarly, Kees-Jan Rameau, chief operating officer for integrated energy of Eneco, remarked, "Energy storage is essential for the sustainable energy system of the future.  We see a bright future for these storage solutions and this second project with Corre Energy helps us get closer to the goals in our One Planet Plan: to be climate neutral in 2035, together with our customers."
