West Burton: EDF Group’s 49 MW mega-battery helps to balance the electricity grid in the United Kingdom
On Friday 22th June, EDF Renewables announced the commissioning of a 49 MW battery at the West Burton B site in the United Kingdom to provide frequency regulation across the electricity grid. In this project, on behalf of Nidec, EDF Store & Forecast provided the energy management system (EMS) that autonomously controls the battery to optimize performance and meet all technical requirements set by National Grid.
EDF Store & Forecast has achieved its first major reference in North America with the successful connection of its energy smart management system PEGASE EMS on a 20MW battery plant. Realized in partnership with EDF Renewable Energy and EDF R&D, this project aims to support the local Regional Transmission Organisation and provide Ancillary Services.
