Rosatom might build energy storage production in Belarus

MOSCOW. Feb 14 (Interfax) - Rosatom State Corporation might establish an assembly plant for energy storage systems in Minsk, the Strana Rosatom corporate publication said on Telegram.

"The Belarusian Energy Ministry and the Renera industry integrator will prepare a roadmap that will include joint projects in the field of energy storage systems. Promising industries include energy, industry, and electric transport," the report says.

Russian batteries are already used in Belarus in electric transport, and the country is also interested in their implementation in the energy industry, the publication says.

Renera is a Rosatom industry integrator which implements project roadmaps to create energy storage facilities. Thus, last fall, the company began construction of a plant for the production of lithium-ion cells and batteries in the Kaliningrad region at the site of the shelved Baltiyskaya nuclear power plant. Launch is planned in the fall of 2025. In December, they opened the production of lithium-ion storage devices on the territory of the Moscow Polymetal Plant.
