Powin, Pulse Partnering to Deploy 110-MWh Battery Storage in Scotland

While Powin will provide its Stack750 energy storage system with integrated StackOS software, Pulse will oversee asset delivery and manage operations across the project lifecycle.

Powin has signed an agreement with Pulse Clean Energy to deploy a 50 MW/110 MWh BESS on project Overhill in Scotland, UK.

While Powin will provide its Stack750 energy storage system with integrated StackOS software, Pulse will oversee asset delivery and manage operations across the project lifecycle. The project is scheduled to be commercially operational by mid-2025.

The Overhill project will be capable of storing surplus renewable generation during periods of high production for release back into the grid during periods of lower production or high system demand. It will provide services to maintain balance within the power grid for more renewables to be connected securely to the UK energy system.

“We look forward to collaborating with Powin to advance clean energy solutions which leverage our collective expertise and capability,” said Trevor Wills, CEO of Pulse. “We believe in a more affordable, sustainable, and secure future - enabled by partnerships which deliver solutions that will reduce system costs, decrease emissions, and improve grid resiliency.”

The UK government aims for its power sector to achieve net zero by 2035. The UK will require nearly 40 GWh of BESS to help integrate renewable energy by 2030 for improved stability and security of the electricity system.
