Project milestone as lithium-ion and lead battery hybrid ESS is delivered to UK port

Wed, 08/19/2020 - 14:37 -- Paul Crompton

A hybrid lithium-ion and lead-acid battery has been delivered to Portsmouth International Port as part of the Port Energy Systems Optimisation (PESO) project.

The 100kW battery will be used to charge electric cars and peak shifting services as the port demonstrates how it can operate as a smart energy network.

The ESS is the only one being used for the pilot project, but if successful the port may order more ‘large scale ones’.

The system, which uses use a hybrid energy storage system supplied by GS Yuasa, is due to come into operation in early 2021.

The batteries are manufactured at GS Yuasa’s Ebbw Vale factory in Wales where final assembly and integration of the entire system takes place. The system’s lithium batteries come from Japan. 

The PESO project is being led by Marine South East supported by Portsmouth International Port alongside Swanbarton and Energy Systems Catapult.

The funding to develop and build the prototype system is coming from Innovate UK's 'Prospering from the Energy Revolution' fund.
