FRV to develop 15-MWh energy storage project in UK

FRV's energy storage planned pipeline

December 4 (Renewables Now) - Spain-based Fotowatio Renewable Ventures (FRV), part of Abdul Latif Jameel Energy, today said it is developing a 15-MWh lithium-ion battery storage system in the UK.

The project, FRV's first, will be carried out in partnership with local developer Harmony Energy as part of the former's long-term investment plan to develop energy storage worldwide. It will be located at Holes Bay in Dorset, with construction set to commence in January 2020 and commissioning expected within three months.

The Holes Bay project will be connected to the Southern Electric Power distribution network, providing flexibility to the grid.

Currently, Harmony Energy has over 500 MW of construction-ready battery energy storage assets, with an additional 300 MW of projects pre-qualified into the UK Capacity Market thanks to the backing of FRV, CEO Peter Kavanagh noted.
