Independent connections provider g2 Energy has completed the grid connection works on a new 29MW battery storage facility in Kent, taking its UK battery storage works past the 100MW mark. Its latest connection works, on behalf of battery storage developer BESS, started in October 2017 and finished four months later, ensuring that the facility could be operated during two TRIAD periods of the 2017/18 winter.

More than 100 driven concrete piles were required to serve as foundations as a result.
