Essen, Germany — German energy conglomerate E.ON said Tuesday it partners with Quinbrook on a large battery storage project.

The project is set to be located at the site of a former coal-fired power station in Uskmouth, South Wales. Each of the two storage facilities will boast a remarkable capacity of 230 megawatt-hours and an output of 115 megawatts. As per the agreement disclosed today, E.ON has acquired one of the two storage units currently under construction, thereby securing 50 percent of the project’s future storage capacity.

Marking E.ON’s first venture into battery storage systems of this magnitude, the project is a notable advancement in the company’s commitment to sustainable energy solutions.

The storage facility, expected to begin providing balancing energy from the first quarter of 2025, will also play a significant role in the wholesale market.

The capacity of these systems is equivalent to the energy needs of approximately 35 million smartphones, highlighting the scale and impact of this initiative. The collaboration between E.ON and Quinbrook represents a strategic step in bolstering the UK’s energy infrastructure and highlights the increasing importance of innovative energy storage solutions in managing and supporting the energy grid.
