Feeder Road will be a 20MW battery storage project, storing electricity when energy is abundant and exceeding demand, exporting it back to the grid during peak usage times when carbon intensity on the grid is traditionally highest. The project can provide one to two hours of electricity, or 20-40MWh, to the National Grid or the local distribution network.
Feeder Road can also provide frequency response services to the National Grid. Traditionally these services have been provided by fossil fuel generators. But as the UK moves towards net zero, sustainable methods of providing these services, such as battery storage, must be used.
The project is currently in the final stages of commissioning.
