Balancing the Grid

Meeting the UK’s energy needs

Pivot Power is installing the UK’s largest battery storage network, helping to future-proof our energy system, improve resilience and enable renewables to meet an even greater share of the country’s energy needs.  At 2 GW across 45 sites, Pivot Power’s battery portfolio represents a huge increase in battery capacity for the UK market – enough electricity to supply 235,000 average homes for a day.

When the transmission grid is experiencing exceptionally high demand or when there is an unexpected outage somewhere, Pivot Power storage will be able to release energy in less than a second to meet that demand.  Conversely, when the system is generating a surplus of energy – for example when gales are blowing – Pivot Power’s batteries can consume and store excess energy that would otherwise be wasted.
