Brentwood is home to new 10MW battery facility

Gore Street Energy Storage Fund’s new 10MW battery has gone into operation using Origami’s smart grid technology. The battery is in Brentwood, Essex.

SSE Business Energy is the licensed supplier and power offtaker for the battery, which uses batteries supplied by Japanese engineering giant NEC.

Alex O’Cinneide, chief executive of Gore Street Capital, the energy storage fund’s investment adviser, commented: “We are delighted that Lower Road, our 10MW project in Brentwood, is now operational and directly contributing to our company’s revenue.”

Peter Bance, chief executive, Origami, said: “New battery projects provide much needed flexibility, which is critical if we are to make a success of renewables. Our technology enables asset owners to generate value from a number of different energy markets. This is one example of how Origami’s intelligent technology enables our customers to generate optimal financial returns across a range of dynamically changing opportunities.
