    Harmony Energy energises 98-MW/196-MWh battery in UK

    November 21, 2022 - SeeNews Renewables


      November 21 (Renewables Now) - Harmony Energy Income Trust plc (LON:HEIT) said on Monday it has switched on the 98-MW/196-MWh Pillswood energy storage project near Hull in East Yorkshire, which ranks as Europe’s largest battery in terms of MWh.

      The project was developed by Harmony Energy Ltd, while Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) was in charge of construction. The system uses Tesla Megapack technology.

      The battery was originally scheduled to go online in two phases in December 2022 and March 2023, but as previously announced the schedule was sped up.

      “All stakeholders have recognised the importance of achieving energisation for this project ahead of winter [...],” remarked Peter Kavanagh, director of Harmony Energy Advisors Ltd.

      The project is located next to National Grid's Creyke Beck substation which will become the connection point for the A and B phases of the 3.6-GW Dogger Bank offshore wind farm, whose first phase is due to start operations in the summer of 2023.

      The battery will provide balancing services to the grid, helping to reduce wind farm curtailments.

      This is the first project of Harmony Energy Income Trust’s portfolio to start operations. The energy storage investor has five more battery systems under construction that will come onstream over the period till October 2023 and three pipeline projects. The acquisition of the pipeline projects will bring the company’s portfolio to nine projects totalling about 500 MW/1 GWh.
