Trina Storage is to provide batteries for four UK sites operated by Low Carbon. Together, the batteries will offer 190 MWh of total storage capacity, bringing new arbitrage and other ancillary capabilities to each plant.
Each project is able to provide its rated power output continuously for two hours. The projects will each be co-located with a solar power plant.
The Trina Storage Elementa 0.5P cabinets will be installed at Low Carbon’s Meadow, Sandon Brook, Fern Brook and Birch Solar Farms. The solar farms all use Trina Solar PV modules.
Justin Thesiger, Managing Director of Global Supply Chain at Low Carbon said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Trina Storage to deliver these projects.” He added, “We have high ambitions for our UK sites and see great potential in using storage for arbitrage and the provision of grid services. Our collaboration with Trina Storage, and Trina Solar more widely, will help us to maximise the potential of our sites and accelerate the energy transition.”
