Energy storage solutions

Our vision is a world that runs entirely on green energy. In order to get there, we need to fundamentally change the way we power the world; from black to green energy.

Our green transformation

Over the past decade, we’ve transformed from an energy company based on coal and oil to a global leader in renewable energy. We’ve divested our upstream oil and gas business and decided to stop all use of coal.

 

We believe that energy storage will play a pivotal role in a world that runs entirely on green energy. Energy storage is the catalyst between production and consumers that will enable the complete transformation of power production from fossil fuels to renewable energy.

Battery Energy Storage Systems (BESS) providing grid services

 

Because battery storage systems are very fast to respond and can be easily controlled they’ll play an important role in providing services that support of the stability of the electricity network. The demand for these services is likely to grow in the UK as the country is expected to retire large parts of its carbon-based generation fleet and introduce more renewables generation.

Our UK projects

We have two operational projects in the UK, both in the Liverpool area.

Project HIVE

Project HIVE is a 2MW battery, that is joined to Burbo Bank offshore wind farm. It operates alongside the wind farm’s generation to either provide more or less electricity to the grid when needed.

Carnegie Road

Carnegie Road is our newest project and our first commercial stand-alone battery energy storage system. The 20 megawatt (MW) battery, located in Liverpool, consists of three battery containers, as well as the associated Power Conversion system all supplied by NEC. Read the press release or hear from Bridgit Hartland-Johnson, Lead Origination and Investment Manager in the below video, to find out more about the project.
