Energy Storage: Consulting. Planning. Project supervision.

Stationary large scale batteries are a reality in the German and international market, which allow to design the energy supply more economical and ecological. The engineering service Innovation for Energy Storage Sternkopf offers you development, planning and consulting for stationary batteries. Among my references that contain over 40 MW of installed stationary battery storage, I was the responsible systems engineer for Europe’s first commercial multi-megawatt storage system. As a freelance engineer, my services are guaranteed to be independent, technology agnostic and neutral regarding manufacturers.

There is a custom-tailored offer for every customer group. Are you:

  • A plant operator or project developer (or want to evaluate, whether the operation of a large scale battery is economical for you)
  • System integrator or planning office

My support for your company is independent, flexible and most of all: qualified. After finishing my masters degree in electrical power systems engineering at the RWTH Aachen University (specialisation in energy storage technology at the ISEA institute), I worked as a project and systems engineer for over three years at Younicos, a storage system pioneer.

Since 2015, I offer this combination of practical experience, theoretical knowledge and motivation under the name Innovation for Energy Storage Sternkopf as a flexible service. I’d be glad to offer it to your company, too!
