The Forschungszentrum Jülich (FZJ IEK-3) has been collecting the data of large-scale battery storage systems (LSS) in Germany since 2012. It contains location, installed capacity, installed power, investment, battery technology, commissioning date, operational status, area of application, and further information on the different LSS projects. We conducted our research through the evaluation of many press releases, prequalification results for ancillary services and bilateral contact to project planners and owners. The database is constantly updated. It contains both realized and planned BSS. The database is not exhaustive, as not all realized projects have publicly available information that can be included in it. Furthermore, storage systems outside of Germany, which are operating at least partly on the German market, are not included in the database. The project-specific sources are also included in the database to make the extended search for any information easier. The database was published together with our paper "The Development of Stationary Battery Storage Systems in Germany – A Market Review".
