Site overview

As the UK’s energy requirements continue to grow, storage technologies and projects will help to ensure that energy is always available where it is needed. Low Carbon is a leading player in the UK energy storage market and is building a portfolio of Low Carbon Battery Parks™. The Glassenbury battery storage park, a 40MW storage project in Kent, was successfully awarded contracts in the National Grid’s Enhanced Frequency Response (EFR) tender process and the Capacity Market Auction during 2016. The Low Carbon Battery Parks™ at Cleator and Glassenbury will be the UK’s largest portfolio of operational battery storage sites when they are connected to the National Grid in 2017.
