Sembcorp Energy UK has secured a contract for 150MW of two-hour duration battery storage.
The company secured the contract in the provisional results of the T-4 2025/26 Capacity Market auction.
It has been reported that the company has won a 15-year contract for the 150MW/300 megawatt-hour battery in the auction. The project is slated to come into operation by 2023.
"The 150MW tranche is part of a planned total 360MW battery energy storage system announced in December 2021," a local report mentioned.
Besides, the firm will have a total battery capacity of 420MWh in the UK in addition to the existing 120MWh battery pipeline.
It has been estimated that batteries can supply power to the national grid which can provide a secure and stable energy system.
Sembcorp Industries UK and Middle East chief executive Andy Koss commented, “SEUK’s battery portfolio expansion will help ensure the resilience of the electricity network that will enable the continued growth of renewables and help the UK decarbonise.”
