BayWa to develop battery energy storage system in UK

BayWa is all set to develop a battery energy storage system (BESS) in the UK.

The 57MW/171 megawatt-hour Meadow Farm project has received permit for its planning application.

The project will be built in partnership with Grüne Energien Solar, which will be located in north-east England.

According to the company, the project is expected to support the deployment of renewable generation onto the grid and contribute to country’s greener economy.

BayWa r.e. UK managing director John Milligan was quoted in a statement, “BESS facilities like Meadow Farm allow flexibility within the national electricity transmission, complementing renewable energy generation profiles.

Meanwhile, Head of storage EMEA at BayWa r.e. Julian Gerstner remarked, “We are thrilled to bring our storage capabilities to the next level with our largest standalone storage project in the UK to date and one of our biggest in Europe.”

As per a local report, “The development of large BESS projects – either connected with renewable energy plants or as stand-alone – demonstrates the full potential of green energy, bringing grid flexibility and stability, as well as contributing significantly to the acceleration of the energy transition.”
