Energy storage specialist Anesco has teamed up with clean tech start-up Limejump to deliver 185MW of energy storage capacity into the UK’s capacity market this summer. The new units, which will be brought online by the end of 2018, will be used to help stabilise the grid and maximise the use of renewable power by storing it until energy is needed.

Anesco has revealed plans to build 185MW of battery storage by the end of 2018, creating the largest battery portfolio in the UK. The energy company intends to enter the portfolio for prequalification in the capacity market over the summer ahead of the next auction in December.”As well as aiding grid stability, energy storage can help maximise the use of renewable power being generated, while breeding a more resilient local grid.” The new projects will add to Anesco’s existing 18.9MW battery portfolio, which was recently joined by the firm’s twentieth utility scale battery unit. They will be used to help balance the grid and maintain its stability as more intermittent renewable generation comes online.
