Leclanché to develop battery storage solution for Fastned fast charging stations

Swiss battery-maker Leclanché will develop a battery storage solution for Fastned’s charging stations, starting with a pilot at two locations.

Fastned operates a network of 63 fast charging stations in the Netherlands, and is in the process of expanding to London and Germany. Fastned’s highway charging stations have up to eight fast chargers, and its city stations have up to four.

Leclanché’s large-format lithium-ion batteries will act as a buffer between the electric grid and the multiple vehicles being charged, allowing Fastned to reduce strain on the grid, avoid peak demand charges, and store energy from its solar roofs.

“Leclanché has been leading innovation in energy storage for many years, and is the ideal partner for us to develop a battery storage service for our rapidly growing network,” said Fastned CEO Michiel Langezaal. “The pilot project will showcase the technology and provide the data to support financing the rollout of Leclanché’s batteries throughout our network.”
