£20 million Scottish renewable energy storage unit for Broxburn will be first in UK


As you know, we’re increasingly producing too much energy from our wind farms and marine turbines:

‘Scotland Sets [Another] New Wind Power Record’

‘Wind farms powered 4 million Scottish homes last month’ and there are only 2.4 million ‘households’ in Scotland

When this happens, storage is the problem in matching demand to the fluctuations in supply. However, a new large-scale battery storage facility, the first in the UK, is to be built in Broxburn by the Trig company.

The Broxburn facility will story 20MW which is off course only a fraction of our daily needs of around 1 million MW but may herald the start of a trend.  Trig, as-a-whole, will have 774MW across Europe.
