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.

Description

The EDF West Burton Battery Energy Storage System was developed by EDF Energy Renewables. The project is owned by EDF Energy Renewables (100%), a subsidiary of EDF Renewables.

The key applications of the project are frequency regulation, renewables capacity firming and renewables energy time shift.

Contractors involved

EDF Energy Renewables and Nidec ASI have delivered the battery energy storage project.

Additional information

West Burton is a project built by EDF Renewables that is co-located with the West Burton B combined-cycle gas plant in Nottinghamshire county. The lithium-ion battery (49 MW–24.5 MWh) is made up of 20 industrial containers, each with 2.45 MW of battery capacity provided by Nidec. This is the largest battery storage project in Europe. The EMS installed by EDF Store & Forecast controls the operation of the storage project.
