New Zenobe site in Capenhurst

29 June 2021

One of the largest batteries in Europe is to be placed near Ellesmere Port.

Zenobe, the UK’s leading independent owner and operator of battery storage, has selected EDF as the company’s trading and optimisation partner for the new 100MW battery.

The battery will be located at Capenhurst and will be the largest transmission-connected battery storage project in Europe.

The announcement of this partnership follows several months of cooperation between the two teams working on the project.

Zenobe and EDF are among the main players in this sector; Zenobe currently has 175MW of operational grid-scale battery capacity and is on track to have 1GW of battery storage by 2026; EDF has now contracted 490MW battery storage under optimisation.

The long-term agreement will see EDF optimise the battery through its trading platform. It will mean EDF opening access to a variety of revenue streams for this asset.
