Deutsche Telekom plans to become climate-neutral by 2040. As part of this plan, the company has commissioned the first large-scale battery storage units for the integration of renewable energy through PASM. This initiative places the company at the forefront of the telecommunications industry, actively contributing to Germany’s energy transition.

The battery energy storage system supplied by Pixii has 1 MW of conversion capacity and 6 MWh of storage capacity. The solution is based on Pixii’s proven PowerShaper product family. It is installed indoors at the central office and datacenter site in Münster.

Pixii is also working with PASM on further installations

In total, PASM plans to install battery energy storage systems with a total capacity of more than 300 MWh. This capacity will be used for peak shaving, arbitrage and to maximize the use of renewable energy, as well as to participate in energy markets to contribute to the stability of the German electricity network.
