Powering a future of renewable energy

A first-of-its kind energy storage project in the United Kingdom

Wärtsilä continues to play an important role in improving the UK’s grid by installing a 200 MW / 400 MWh energy storage system (ESS). The system will be owned by Zenobē, an international electric vehicle fleet and battery storage specialist, and will be one of the largest in the country to-date. The project will also be one of the first in the world to deliver stability services using a transmission-connected battery, which will support the country’s transition to a zero-carbon energy network by preparing the grid for an increased supply of renewables.

The transmission-connected battery provides important stabilisation for the grid, which has traditionally been supplied by fossil fuel-powered generators.
