Plant type: Aluminium electrolysis
Products: Control reserve (FCR, aFRR, mFRR), intraday optimisation
TRIMET’s aluminium electrolysis can vary the power they obtain from the grid at short notice by up to 25 %, functioning as “virtual batteries” in the Entelios Demand Response Programme. As part of the 360° strategy we provide the complete range of flexibility commercialisation (FCR, aFRR, mFRR, Intraday).

A pioneering role in the flexibility market: with the amendment to the regulation on Interruptible Loads (AbLaV) in 2016, Entelios was the first company in Germany to succeed in obtaining pre-qualification for ensuring grid stability with a paper machine. Since 2017 Entelios is using paper machines on a large scale for commercialising within the Interruptible Loads programme. This proves that even in highly sensitive production fields, there are opportunities to use existing flexibility to both benefit the system and bring in revenue.
In addition, Entelios has been working for years to develop flexibility concepts for all loads and power generating installations at paper production locations.
Locations: Gundelfingen & Oberhausen
Plant type: Nitrogen liquefaction cycle
Product: Interruptible loads
Pre-qualification and commercialization of two nitrogen liquefaction cycles on the sites Gundelfingen and Oberhausen since beginning/mid of 2018 in the regulation of interruptible loads. The nitrogen liquefaction process can be shutdown at short notice if required in order to secure the grid stability.
Plant type: Gas and steam power plant
Product: Asset Backed Trading
Since end of 2017 BASF makes use of the possibility to optimise the generation portfolio of its gas and steam power plant on the intraday market via Asset Backed Trading – from the nomination to the schedule execution. The fully automated process of the proprietary developed automated Algo-Trader uses the significant price volatilities in the Intraday market of the EPEX-Spot to further maximize the revenues.
Plant type: Quick start gas turbine
Product: Asset Backed Trading – „All-or-Nothing “
Next to the optimisation of the generation portfolio of its gas and steam power plant Infraleuna launched in 2019 together with Entelios the automated commercialisation of a quick start gas turbine on the Intraday market with the so called “All-or-Nothing” feature. Due to the operation characteristics of the gas turbine this feature guarantees the request of the unit’s complete capacity.
Plant type: Industrial storage consisting of Second-Use e-car batteries
Products: FCR, reactive power compensation, Peak shaving
Pre-qualification and commercialisation of an industrial storage whose battery system is equipped with Second-Use e-car batteries form the automobile manufacturer Daimler. Next to the delivery of PCR on the control reserve market it is possible for the municipal utilities of Trostberg to use the battery system for reactive power compensation as well as peak shaving.
Plant type: Lithium-ion battery pool
Pre-qualification and commercialization of a large-scale battery system via Entelios in the Frequency Containment Reserve (FCR), the most demanding control reserve product. The Li-ion battery pool with a capacity of 6.4 MW is due to its fast response time and delivery accuracy particularly suitable for the balancing of grid fluctuations. Hence with the commercialisation in the FCR the battery pool is permanently contributing to the stabilization of the German power grid.
