The Dorking Battery Energy Storage System is a 6,000kW energy storage project located in Dorking, England, UK.
The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2017 and was commissioned in 2018.
The Dorking Battery Energy Storage System was developed by Grid Battery Storage and Siemens.
The key applications of the project are frequency regulation and grid support services.
Grid Battery Storage and Siemens have delivered the battery energy storage project.
This project is a part of partnership agreement between Siemens and Grid Battery Storage Limited (GBSL) to develop four energy storage projects totaling 22 MW for UK’s National Grid. GBSL will use Siemens SieStorage Lithium-ion battery energy storage solutions, and the projects will be financed by Siemens Financial Services in the UK. The partnership is designed to maximise the benefits from battery storage and to introduce new storage technology as it emerges.
