    Engie buys another 50-MW Scottish battery project

    March 28, 2023 - SeeNews Renewables


      March 28 (Renewables Now) - France’s Engie SA (EPA:ENGI) has acquired a 50-MW ready-for-construction battery energy storage project in Scotland’s South Lanarkshire council area, the power utility said on Tuesday.

      The scheme was purchased from developers EcoDev, Sirius Renewable Energy, and Ethical Power Connections for an undisclosed sum.

      The Broxburn facility will be installed about 30 miles (48 km) away from the 50-MW Cathkin battery scheme near East Kilbride, which Engie bought in November last year. Both systems are planned to connect to the 33-kV network at the same time. According to the statement, the Broxburn site is planned to be put on stream in the second half of 2024.

      The two battery systems will be run alongside Engie’s 2.1 GW of pumped storage facilities in North Wales, the company noted.

      The latest purchase is aligned with Engie’s goal to boost its flexible generation capacity and have 10 GW of battery storage systems installed globally by 2030, mainly in Europe and the US. The plan is underpinned by a 50% increase in the group’s planned sustainable growth investments in 2023-2025.
