One of the UK’s biggest battery energy storage facilities to date has gone into operation in southeast England.
British Solar Renewables (BSR) said the 49.99-megawatt Stocking Pelham lithium-ion BESS, near Bishop’s Stortford, is connected to a nearby 400kV substation via a 132kV grid connection.
Lebanon is reportedly issued a call for developers to build a series of battery energy storage systems in the country as part of a solar power project.
The Lebanese Centre for Energy Conservation (LCEC) has called for expressions of interest to develop 300MW of grid-connected photovoltaic projects with battery storage.
UK-based BESS developer and operator Kiwi Power has launched its biggest behind the meter battery to date— a 4MW Tesla Powerpack in Wales.
Kiwi said the 4.8MWh lithium-ion battery started providing firm frequency response (FFR) to the National Grid this month from the Parc Stormy renewable technologies site operated by Cenin Renewables near Bridgend.
