Anglian Water has bought an energy storage device to help it make the most of onsite solar technologies. The largest water company in England and Wales by geographic area will use a 60kW vanadium redox flow redT machine to store power from a 450kWp solar system at one of its water treatment facilities. The firm says it will slash the site’s reliance on the grid and help reduce the firm’s £77 million energy bill, which is one of the company’s largest operational costs. The device, which can provide at least five hours of continuous energy, will also enable real-time balancing services, allowing Anglian Water to sell power back to the grid and halve yearly site electricity costs by 2040.
