Rolls-Royce reported it expanded the recently acquired, Berlin-based Qinous GmbH into a Microgrid Competence Center. Previously, Rolls-Royce renamed the company Rolls-Royce Solutions
Berlin GmbH.

As a center, it will see more group investment in its distributed energy systems business.

Rolls-Royce said the center is making a major contribution to decarbonizing energy systems. “It ranges from simple storage solutions to complex microgrids that intelligently combine battery storage with renewable energies, and with diesel or gas gensets,” Andreas Schell, CEO, power systems division, Rolls-Royce, said. “With Quinous, we are expanding our microgrid expertise and combining the dynamics of a startup with the security and reliability of a large corporate group.”
