Anesco-Shell partnership for UK battery storage project

Mon, 01/14/2019 - 00:00 -- John Shepherd

Energy storage developer Anesco is to partner the investment arm of multinational Shell in a UK battery storage project.

Anesco said it will work with Shell New Energies in developing the 1.25-megawatt lithium-ion project at the Bacton gas terminal site on the Norfolk coast.

Anesco will provide the design, procurement, installation, commissioning and maintenance of the utility scale system.

Shell New Energies invests in new and fast-growing segments of the energy industry, on a battery storage project at the Bacton gas terminal site.

Anesco said last year it was on track to “quadruple its operational battery portfolio” in the UK by 2020.

Chinese lithium-ion battery giant BYD is Anesco’s current supplier. But an Anesco spokesperson told BEST Battery Briefing previously the company remains “technology agnostic”— and is “always keeping fully aware of latest technology”.

Last year, Shell New Energies signed a cooperation agreement with Germany-based battery storage firm Sonnen to focus on “enhanced electric vehicle charging solutions and the provision of grid services”.
