 Blackburn Meadows Battery

Our customer

National Grid is a British transmission system operator (TSO). Its new service “Enhanced Frequency Response” deals with volatile fluctuations in the grid. 

We install one of the first commercial batteries for the UK grid and thus contribute to securing power supply for the industrial and commercial sector as well as households.

Our solution

In a highly competitive tender with almost 250 tender options, E.ON was able to secure 1 out of only 8 contracts

E.ON will install a lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 10 MW to provide enhanced frequency response

The power of the battery corresponds to the power of ~100 family cars

The system is planned to be operational by the start of 2018
