Origami, a leading technology developer for energy companies, has announced the latest grid-scale battery storage project to use its smart technology is now operational. The 10MW battery, Lower Road, located in Brentwood, Essex, will be managed using Origami’s platform to help balance the national grid and provide additional capacity at times of need.
The 10MW capacity battery project is owned by Gore Street Energy Storage Fund plc (GSF), London’s first listed energy storage fund investing in income-producing assets in the UK and internationally. The energy storage facility, which uses batteries supplied by NEC, the Japanese engineering giant, is now grid-connected, operational and generating regular income for Gore Street Energy Storage Fund. SSE Business Energy is the licenced supplier and power offtaker for the battery.
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.
“We are pleased to support Gore Street Energy Storage Fund in bringing one of Britain’s largest battery projects live using the Origami technology platform,” said Peter Bance, Chief Executive, Origami. “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. We look forward to working with Gore Street Energy Storage Fund on future energy storage projects and accessing new value opportunities using its batteries.”
