The 50MW project in Ibrox, Glasgow was granted planning permission in March earlier this year, able to transfer 33kv to Govan SP Energy Networks for households and businesses to use at times of peak demand or when renewable generation is cheaper. Construction is set to begin early in the New Year, and the project is expected to energize in March 2025.

South of the border, the energy generation specialists will be starting construction this side of Christmas at a 11MW site at Coryton Energy Park in Essex. The battery storage site is expected to be fully operational in the fall of 2024.

Commenting on the new sites, Ian Gadsby, Managing Director at YLEM Energy, said, "It is fantastic to be ready to begin construction on two strategically important BESS sites. As the UK continues to decarbonize, BESS sites will play an important role in storing renewable energy for those days where it may not be as windy or sunny to meet our energy needs.

"The construction of these two sites not only reflects our dedication to meeting the growing demand for sustainable energy solutions but reinforces our commitment to offering businesses and communities sustainable solutions for their energy needs. We look forward to continuing to contribute to a greener, more sustainable future and growing the UK's renewable energy landscape."
