Canadian Solar said e-STORAGE signed an EPC agreement with Engie for construction of the projects, each with a capacity of 56.5 megawatts. Both sites, one located in Cathkiin and the other in Broxburn, Scotland, will use e-STORAGE’s SolBank technology, a containerized system of lithium-iron-phosphate cells.
“Serving alongside Engie’s 2.1 GW [gigawatts] of existing U.K. pumped storage assets at Dinorwig and Ffestiniog, these projects will build upon Engie’s position as a leader in power flexibility in the U.K.,” Aidan Connolly, head of Engie Battery Storage UK, said in the release. “Engie is targeting 10 GW of global battery storage by 2030 to help facilitate the energy transition, and these two Scottish projects are another step on this journey.”
Combined, the projects are expected to support more than 40,000 homes when they are connected to Scotland’s 33-kilovolt distribution network in early 2025.
