EDF Energy and technology partner Upside Energy will trade the power from Anesco’s 16MW Clayhill solar-storage farm.
Terms of the deal include EDF providing a floor price for the storage aspect, and the site’s output will be bid into wholesale markets as well as contracted to grid operators.
EDF said it will now bring more of Anesco’s assets into its PowerShift demand-side response platform.
Anesco has completed 100MW of battery projects to date and aims to have 380MW on line by the end of next year.
