Norfolk to get utility-scale battery

In January Shell’s New Energies division announced its partnership with renewable energy company Anesco on a 1.25MW/1.25MWh utility-scale battery project at the Bacton gas terminal in Norfolk.

Anesco is to provide the design, procurement, installation, commissioning and maintenance of the system, which is expected to be energised this summer. Shell has not revealed plans as to how the battery will be operated, nor the reason for its placement near the gas terminal, but it shows Shell’s progress towards flexibility projects.

Anesco Executive Chairman Steve Shine said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Shell New Energies on this exciting new project in the storage sector. It marks another significant milestone for us at Anesco. We have fully complied with Shell’s high standards of quality and safety and that is a massive compliment to the Anesco team”.
