“LONDON and TORONTO, Jan. 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ – Amp Energy, a global Energy Transition Platform, and renewable energy developer, today announces Europe’s two biggest battery storage facilities with its 800 MW battery portfolio in central Scotland (the “Scottish Green Battery Complex”). The portfolio is due to be operational in April 2024 and will be comprised of two 400 MW battery facilities, each providing 800 MWhrs of energy storage capacity.
Following consultations with stakeholders and local councils the two sites received planning consent from the Scottish Government Energy Consents Unit on the 5th January 2022.
The 400 MW batteries will be the two largest grid-connected battery storage facilities in Europe.
Amp X, Amp’s proprietary AI-powered digital energy platform, will be used to optimize dispatch of power from the batteries to the electricity grid.
The projects will provide reliable grid stability services and power management across the central belt of Scotland including Glasgow and Edinburgh.
By storing and managing the dispatch of renewable energy generated from Scottish windfarms, the projects are future-proofing the UK’s electricity infrastructure at a fraction of the cost of expensive transmission upgrades.
