Shell Energy Europe agrees supply deal from UK battery storage project

LONDON: Shell Energy Europe Limited, the energy marketing and trading division of Royal Dutch Shell has agreed a multi-year supply deal for power from a battery storage project in southwest England, the company said on Monday.

The 100-megawatt (MW) power storage project is backed by China Huaneng Group and Chinese sovereign wealth fund CNIC, and is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.

The two 50-MW batteries will enable Shell Energy Europe and its subsidiary Limejump to use renewable power in the area, the firm said.

When fully charged, a 100-MW battery could hold 100 megawatt hours of electricity, enough to power about 10,000 homes for a day before being recharged.
