V-Storage focuses on innovation in the area of energy storage and e-mobility. The company was founded by VDL Groep and Scholt Energy Services. V-Storage reuses battery packs from electric buses in utility-scale energy storage systems. Strategically discharging the batteries leads to cost savings and by using the energy storage system to trade electricity extra revenue can be generated. Next to this the batteries can serve reserve capacity to support the electricity grid.
The first energy storage system of V-Storage – on the site of VDL ETG in Eindhoven – is commissioned in May 2017. V-Storage can supply similar energy storage systems for interested parties and can also take the electricity trading into account during operation.
