Habitat Energy is now optimising Gresham House’s 22MWh Lockleaze battery in the Dynamic Containment and wholesale markets. This is the fourth battery of Gresham House to move to Habitat’s platform, totalling over 122MWh.
With this latest agreement Habitat Energy has 225MWh of battery storage contracted. The year has also seen it enter the Balancing Mechanism via the Virtual Lead Party route, deliver what is claims is the greatest volume of Reserve from Storage in the market during National Grid ESO’s latest trial of this new product, and deliver the greatest volume of Dynamic Containment in the market since its launch.
Andrew Luers, co-founder and CEO of Habitat Energy said, “We are very pleased to be continuing and deepening our relationship with Gresham House and appreciate the confidence they have put in us to deliver value from their asset portfolio. Together we have been able to make great strides in the UK energy storage sector and showcase the value these very flexible assets can deliver.”
Ben Guest, managing director, Gresham House New Energy said, “It’s good to extend our relationship with Habitat Energy to our Lockleaze project. We divide our storage projects between a range of optimisation partners and – as this move shows – are comfortable moving to the best partner for our assets.”
Habitat Energy provides an optimisation and trading platform for grid-scale battery storage, with full route-to-market capability for wholesale and balancing markets in the UK. It operates with partners across Europe and the US and recently expanded into the Australian market, optimising a government-backed co-located Vanadium Flow battery energy storage (2MW – 8MWh AC) and Solar Photovoltaic farm (6MWp DC), integrated behind a DC-coupled inverter.
