The facility is located on a two-hectare site adjacent to a 132kV substation and will consist of 28 battery container units, offering flexibility services to National Grid that support the UK’s transition to renewable energy. 

The installation will have a lifespan of 40 years, after which time it will be returned to its natural state. Significant ecological enhancements will be made to the site, including the planting of trees, hedges and wildflowers, the creation of additional scrubland, and improvements to an existing pond, along with the addition of a further three new ponds. 

“We’re delighted to receive approval for the Brentwood site” said Mark Futyan, Anesco CEO. “Energy storage has a vital role to play in the UK’s evolving energy network. It provides the flexibility needed to support the switch to renewable power, offering a solution to the intermittency this can mean for the grid. Biodiversity is something we focus heavily on at Anesco and the site will benefit from a number of improvements, including substantial landscaping and planting, to create habitats for some of the most at-risk species. In addition, we’re providing information boards for educational purposes and will be working closely with the local community to provide additional benefits throughout the lifetime of the development.”

Anesco has more than 430 MW of new solar and storage projects in planning or at the ready to build stage, with a total pipeline exceeding 2 GW, while its O&M team is managing more than 1.1GW of renewable energy assets.
