Swiss-based MET Group said that it will install a 4 MW Tesla Megapack battery at its gas-fired Dunamenti power plant.

Thus, the company will be the first to deploy a Megapack battery in Hungary. The project will be implemented next summer and is expected to pave the way for more efficient system integration of renewable energy producers.

CEO of power plant Dunamenti Peter Horvath said that the future is carbon-free, meaning even the gas-fired power plants providing network flexibility have to be carbon-free as much as possible. The experimental project, based on energy storage, will be a prototype for industrial-quantity applications.

Dunamenti is the largest gas-fired power plant in Hungary, with installed capacity of 794 MW.
