Europe's Largest Battery-Storage Project Becomes Operational in the UK

Europe's largest battery-storage project was officially opened by the Department for Energy and Climate Change at Leighton Buzzard in Bedfordshire, England. S&C Electric Europe, Samsung SDI and Younicos collaborated to deploy the technology onto a United Kingdom Power Networks substation. The fully automated 6MW/10MWh smarter network storage (SNS) project will assess the role of energy storage in cost-effectively supporting the UK's Carbon Plan, and will save more than $9.4 million on traditional network-reinforcement methods. S&C Electric Europe is the lead supplier to the $29.2 million project. Berlin-based Younicos contributed custom-built intelligent software architecture and components.
