Flow battery provider redT will deliver a 1.08MWh energy storage project to support the distributed energy system in Cornwall and potentially take part in Centrica’s developing virtual energy marketplace. The storage technology company has signed an agreement with The Olde House, a working farm and holiday retreat situated in North Cornwall, to supply six of its energy storage solutions originally destined for a Scottish wind project. The installed batteries will be coupled alongside two grid-connected solar arrays with a combined capacity of 350kWp and will be used to timeshift excess solar generation during the day for use during peak times when electricity from the grid is most expensive. This is expected to save The Olde House up to 50% on grid imports during peak times.
