Penso Power expands Europe’s largest battery storage scheme

(Climate Action, 24 Mar 2020) Penso Power adds 50MW to Europe’s largest battery storage scheme, bringing to total poject size to 150MW.

Battery storage company Penso Power, has secured land rights, planning permission and a grid connection offer to extend the Minety 100MW project by a further 50MW. 

Penso Power focuses on grid-scale battery storage and employs an innovative revenue model to offer superior risk-adjusted returns to investors. The company has a near term project pipeline of over 250MW with ambitions to deploy considerably more than 1GW.

The Minety project, located in Wiltshire, is Europe's largest battery storage development. Work started onsite in December 2019 and it is expected that Minety will enter operation towards the end of 2020. The additional 50MW capacity is to be built on adjacent land, and will enter operation in 2021.

The development of Penso Power's Minety project has been enabled by commercial agreements with Shell Energy Europe and the energy tech company Limejump.
