Argonaut Power (AP) and Northumbrian Water (NW) have entered a partnership to pilot the use of large-scale battery storage at a number of the water utility’s sites across Suffolk, Essex, and the UK’s North East.

Utilising technology from also-UK-based Connected Energy, ‘second life’ lithium-ion batteries from Renault electric vehicles will be installed at the sites to provide behind the meter storage and thereby ‘manage energy loads and reduce electricity spend.’

AP will manage the operation of the battery systems, fully fund the investment costs, and thereby benefit by taking a share of the total income achieved.
