UK energy storage company Anesco has completed work on a 20 MW battery storage project in the North West taking the company’s storage portfolio to 147 MW.
Constructed on a brownfield site in Lascar near Manchester, the installation comprises 16 1.25 MW/1.25 MWh lithium ion containers.
The project has been funded, designed and installed by Anesco and is being monitored by the company’s operation and maintenance service, which will ensure the batteries continue to perform at their optimum efficiency.
The development is benefiting from multiple revenue streams, including the wholesale market, capacity market and National Grid’s balancing services, which seek to secure the security and quality of the UK’s power supply.
Established in Reading in 2010, Anesco has developed 102 solar farms to date, while its renewables operation and maintenance arm has nearly 1 GW of renewable energy under management. Anesco was the first developer to achieve subsidy free solar and remains the only one to retrofit batteries to existing solar sites, while retaining their associated incentives.
