Renewable Energy Systems (RES) is to provide 20MW of frequency response to the national transmission network from battery storage for the first time in the UK. RES has signed a four-year contract with National Grid to use battery storage systems to help National Grid perform its system balancing role.

It is expected to be fully operational within 18 months.
