Network Infrastructure

We’re helping grid operators accelerate the uptake of renewable energy affordably and reliably.

We develop, finance, build and operate large-scale battery storage systems.

We’re helping grid operators move to a fully renewable electricity system affordably and reliably. By enabling them to overcome challenges in balancing supply and demand, power stability and constraints, we’re ensuring network demand and consumer cost expectations are met.

Powering the transition away from fossil fuels

Our grid-connected batteries and services are powering the transition away from fossil fuels and towards net zero. By 2025, we are on track to manage 1GW of battery power.

 

Our 100MW Capenhurst project  is the first to have a commercial contract for reactive power services and is the largest battery directly connected to the transmission network in Europe. It is predicted to save over 1m tonnes of CO2 in just 15 years.

 

Amplifying the grid’s capabilities

Our batteries have been the first to provide fast reserve, to be used for reactive power and to manage grid constraints on the transmission network.

 

Our bespoke solutions range from ancillary, balancing and wholesale trading, to providing inertia, short circuit level, and voltage management.

 

We also provide non-wire alternative solutions that reduce or eliminate expensive network reinforcement costs. These are specific solutions that are essential to a decarbonised electricity system.

Delivering savings to the consumer

Our end-to-end solutions cut the need for expensive or time-consuming grid upgrades, facilitating a reliable and affordable electricity network.

 

We design, build, finance, maintain and decommission all our projects. And by partnering with financial institutions, we gain access to more competitive financing.

 

The combined result is that the end consumer gets a lower bill. And the proof is in our track record – we have  multiple large-scale projects that validate this.

Batteries provide a range of different services to power networks, including maintaining grid stability, managing frequency, voltage, and short circuit level.

 

Renewable energy is intermittent which means that at any time there is a risk of generating too much or too little in relation to demand. This is where batteries come in – storing energy when there is an oversupply and releasing it when there is not enough.
