Sale of energy storage project in UK


United KingdomRES has announced the sale of the Roaring Hill Energy Storage Project to TagEnergy, a clean electricity firm driving the transition to renewables by investing in competitive generating and storage assets to compete directly and actively in the energy market.

Roaring Hill is made up of 18 battery enclosures and was approved by Fife Council in two stages. The sophisticated and highly efficient battery energy storage system will help the network by balancing supply and demand.

Battery energy storage is a critical technology for increasing network flexibility and assisting in the decarbonization of the UK’s electrical grid by 2035. RES is a global pioneer in energy storage projects, having completed 272MW/371MWh projects in Europe and North America. Energy storage systems’ grid stability eventually helps the development of renewable energy, facilitating the energy transition.

Lucy Whitford, MD for Development and Construction at RES, said: “We are pleased to be working with TagEnergy, and look forward to supporting them as they deliver the project. This latest energy storage project will help support the network as we transition to net zero and underlines the position of RES as a reliable, economic and safe choice for energy storage customers in the UK.”
