Renewable Power Capital (RPC) and Elmya Energy have agreed to develop 4GW of battery energy storage systems (BESS) along with co-located solar photovoltaic (PV) assets in the UK under a new JV.

Elmya Energy will offer its existing pipeline of 2.5GW to the JV.

The pipeline includes 1.5GW of transmission-connected projects and 200MW of distribution-connected projects. The pipeline also includes 800MW of early-stage projects.

The first projects are expected to reach the ready-to-build stage in 2025 and 2026. 

Together, the companies intend to develop a 4GW pipeline of large-scale transmission and distribution assets across England and Scotland.

Elmya Energy is a Spanish developer and engineering, procurement and construction contractor. Its UK team has expertise in the development, design and engineering of BESS and co-located solar PV projects.
