The Energy Superhub Oxford – Hybrid Battery Energy Storage System I is a 48,000kW energy storage project located in Oxford, England, UK. The rated storage capacity of the project is 50,000kWh.
The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2019 and will be commissioned in 2021.
The Energy Superhub Oxford – Hybrid Battery Energy Storage System I is being developed by Pivot Power.
The key applications of the project are demand response, grid support services and ev charging.
Pivot Power is the developer. Invinity Energy Systems is the technology provider for the project.
Pivot will lead a consortium of companies which will develop a £41 million (US$53.89 million) ‘SuperHub’ in Oxford, England, incorporating grid-scale batteries, high speed EV chargers and hundred of ground source heat pumps for local homes. The consortium partners are Oxford City Council, Pivot Power, Habitat Energy, Kensa Contracting, redT energy and the University of Oxford. Habitat Energy will be providing the intelligence to optimise the trading of the battery storage in the power markets. Kensa Contracting will install 300 UK designed and manufactured innovative low-carbon ground source heat pump systems. The University of Oxford’s Environmental Change Institute and Department of Engineering Science will assess the impacts of the project and advise on how they can be replicated, both across the country and abroad. Invinity is delivering a 2 MW/5 MWh battery.
