Electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure company Pivot Power has ordered two 50MW battery storage arrays to be located in Oxford and Kent respectively. The company, which was acquired by EDF’s renewables arm last November, is aiming to develop a portfolio of 2GW of grid-scale energy storage arrays within the next decade. The batteries will be used to facilitate rapid EV charging, both in the form of co-located EV charging points and supporting local grids to cope with increasing electricity demand as more EV infrastructure comes online. Wärtsilä, the multinational battery manufacturer and service provider, is providing the batteries to Pivot Power and will provide services to them for ten years.
