Energy nest - hybrid power plant with control system from CIIRC  has started its operation


The Decci Group is commissioning a hybrid energy source with the largest battery storage in the Czech Republic – Energy nest with a total capacity of 30 MW in the village of Vraňany in the Mělník region.  The plant combines innovative technologies with a custom-developed control system that can stabilize the transmission system. The modern energy source can respond flexibly to surpluses or shortages in the grid, and outside of service activation is in standby mode with a zero emission footprint and no inefficient use of fuel. Energy nest is thus not only a flexible and innovative but also an environmentally friendly energy source.

The control system of the power plant was custom-developed by two groups from the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics CTU, namely the Energetics group, led by Ondřej Mamuła, and the Optimization group, led by Přemysl Šůcha. Not only staff members, but also students of the PhD programme were actively involved in the development. The project is the result of a collaboration between the academy and industry in the field of innovative energy.

Work on the project was co-financed with the state support of the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic within the Theta Program (project no. TK04020051).
