Battery Energy Storage Systems Projects

Low Carbon develops both co-located and standalone energy storage assets, to unlock the full potential of intermittent wind and solar.

Our development process

Low Carbon manages the entire process.

1. Land assessment: we work with landowners to evaluate the suitability for battery storage and follow with land and environment surveys

2. Grid connection: with your approval, we apply for a zero obligation grid connection on your land

3. Planning: once the land agreement is secured with the owner, we will undertake a full Environmental Impact Assessment and apply for planning

4. Construction: with planning completed and a grid connection confirmed, Low Carbon will initiate the construction of the battery storage site

5. Operation and Asset Management: once the site has been successfully commissioned, the battery storage site becomes fully operational. All asset management duties are carried out by Low Carbon

6. Local community: we will engage and work with your community and other local stakeholders to deliver the maximum benefit to your area

Facts about Battery Storage

  • Lithium-ion batteries, used in phones and electric vehicles, are currently the dominant grid-scale storage technology
  • Battery storage technology has a key part to play in ensuring homes and businesses can be powered by green energy, even when the sun isn’t shining or the wind has stopped blowing.
  • Battery storage is dispatched every second to keep the supply and demand on the energy grid in balance, preventing imbalance and blackouts.
  • The emergence of battery energy storage facilities offers a gradual replacement of fossil-fuel power plants during peak energy demand.
