The Pivot Power-Norwich – Battery Energy Storage System is a 50,000kW energy storage project located in Norwich, England, UK.
The electro-chemical battery energy storage project uses lithium-ion as its storage technology. The project was announced in 2018 and will be commissioned in 2021.
The Pivot Power-Norwich – Battery Energy Storage System 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 of Pivot Power-Norwich – Battery Energy Storage System.
Pivot Power has won planning permission to build a £25m grid-scale battery and rapid EV charging station in Norwich. The 50 MW battery is one of 45 planned to go live at sites at electricity sub stations across the UK under a £1.6bn programme. The site at Norwich is the third to receive planning permission following Southampton and Carlisle.
Pivot power developing a national network of Energy Superhubs. These combine grid-scale batteries with high volume power connections to create rapid electric vehicle (EV) charging networks, powered by low carbon energy. Pivot have chosen sites that are close to National Grid substations, major road networks and nearby towns and cities. At each location Pivot plan to build a 50 MW battery connected to the high-voltage transmission network.
