Fossil-fuel giant Shell has further extended its reach into the energy storage sector with the acquisition of virtual battery systems operating firm, Limejump.
The purchase by Shell’s New Energies division comes hot on the heels of the multinational’s acquisition of all of the shares in German battery storage firm Sonnen, as reported in last week’s BEST Battery Briefing.
Limejump is a UK-based energy storage management company that describes itself as “the first energy company to trade an aggregated unit and the first to trade batteries in the UK balancing mechanism market”.
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.
