50MW battery system first to export to UK grid

A lithium-ion battery storage site in Oxford has become the first tertiary connection to export energy directly to the UK's national electrical grid. This has been hailed as a "huge achievement" by National Grid.

Tertiary connections provide a way of connecting directly to National Grid’s high voltage transmission network, with each connection providing up to 57MW demand or generation capability, according to Energy Storage News.

Mikey Clark, CTO/COO at Pivot Power said, “We’re hugely honoured that National Grid have chosen to recognise the work we have done at Cowley to create the UK’s first transmission-connected battery. It’s taken a phenomenal effort from everyone in the Pivot Power team and we couldn’t be more proud of what we’ve achieved together.”
