TRIMET’s “virtual battery” will be part of KlimaExpo.NRW

Jan 13, 2017 | Since its invention in 1886, the aluminum production process has been based on a constant supply of energy. With the “virtual battery,” TRIMET Aluminium SE has overcome this dogma for the first time, making the energy-intensive electrolysis process more flexible. This enables a huge power store to be created, facilitating the integration of electricity into the power grid generated sporadically from renewable energy sources. For this exemplary commitment to climate protection, Viktor Haase, Head of Division, Cross-sectoral Environmental Matters and Sustainable Development in the Ministry for Climate Protection, Environment, Agriculture, Conservation, and Consumer Protection of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (MKULNV), officially included the project in KlimaExpo.NRW today on behalf of NRW Minister for Climate Protection Johannes Remmel.
