Russia’s Rosatom has established an industry integrator in the energy storage business area, to be known as RENERA, based on Fuel Company Tvel’s Cathode Materials enterprise. The main product will be lithium-ion traction batteries for electric transport, as well as stationary systems for energy storage (products for emergency and uninterrupted power supply), storage systems for renewable energy sources, and load smoothing.
The name of the company, RENERA (an acronym for Rosatom - Energy Storage Solutions) “symbolises a new era in energy-high-tech solutions that contribute to the development of the industry in terms of decarbonisation, environmental friendliness, energy efficiency and digitalisation,” Tvel said.
The portfolio includes more than 120 ongoing and completed projects for the supply of lithium-ion energy storage devices (contracts previously concluded through Cathode Materials, NPO Centrotech, and the Novosibirsk Chemical Concentrates Plant). The contracts were for the modernisation of logistics electric transport, equipping of operational direct current systems and uninterruptible power supplies with lithium-ion energy storage devices.
“Our company offers customers a comprehensive solution: from feasibility study and design to installation of equipment and post-warranty service. We are ready to fulfil the individual requirements of customers in terms of technical parameters, and also offer flexible conditions and formats of cooperation. We are already carrying out deliveries under the lease scheme, we also intend to start leasing deliveries and offer a life cycle agreement," said RENERA General Director Emin Askerov.
“Having our own R&D centre allows us to develop, along with typical systems, complex solutions for individual customer requirements. The team accompanies the project from R&D to production, provides service. The integrator has dozens of completed projects; solutions with a unit capacity of up to 1MW are under development,” said Tvel.
