Anesco has completed its largest utility-scale battery storage site to date, a 20MW/20MWh project near Manchester.

The Lascar site comprises 16 1.25MW/1.25MWh lithium ion containers and has been installed on brownfield land. 

Anesco has funded, designed and installed the site, and the firm will continue to oversee its operation and maintenance through its in-house O&M division. 

Its financing is also underpinned through the site’s participation in a number of different revenue streams, including wholesale trading, the Capacity Market and National Grid’s balancing services markets. 

Now completed, Lascar takes Anesco’s battery storage portfolio to 147MW, the company said. 

Steve Shine, executive chairman at Anesco, said the firm was delighted to see another project through from planning to deployment.

“Our full service capabilities and unique understanding for how to derive commercial value from renewable assets is something that continues to find favour with investors and customers. 

“Our ability to not only model revenue but to show genuine results being achieved by existing assets, remains a key differentiator within the market and is something our customers highly value,” he said.
