Practical Experiences gained in Battery Energy Solutions Systems during PPRE-Studies

Sameer Sharma (PPRE 18/20) from India together with Tarikua Mekashaw (PPRE 17/19), Ana Fonseca (PPRE 17/19), Apoorv Pareek (PPRE 16/18) and also Muhammad Adnan (EMRE 2018-19), did his internship + master’s thesis with RWE Battery solutions GmbH (Ex. BELECTRIC GmbH) in Dresden, one of the most beautiful and touristic cities of Germany. Right after finishing their thesis projects both, Sameer and Muhammad, got permanent employments at RWE Battery Solutions GmbH.

There has been a wonderful collaboration between PPRE and BELECTRIC GmbH over the past few years. Hans Holtorf’s visit to Dresden and one-on-one meeting with supervisors at BELECTRIC has resulted in a strengthening of relationships between BELECTRIC’s staff and PPRE.
RWE Battery solutions GmbH (formerly known as BELECTRIC GmbH) is a daughter company of the German multinational energy and utility group RWE AG. It provides standalone and PV-coupled battery energy storage solutions to UK, Europe, Americas and Australia. It generates and trades electricity in Asia-Pacific, Europe and the United States.
