Limejump win ‘Utility Scale Storage Project of the Year’ accolade

Press Release

Limejump, the entech platform, today celebrates its success at this year’s Solar & Storage Live Awards which took place in Birmingham last night. Both our end-to-end engineering approach and our innovative optimisation of Europe’s largest battery (Minety, Wiltshire) stole the show and crowned Limejump as the winners of this very prestigious award.

Limejump’s Engineering team flourished when given the opportunity to integrate controls and provide ‘first of its kind’ optimisation services for the 100MW Minety battery. The team successfully, in collaboration with our tech team and project partners, onboarded Minety into National Grid’s Dynamic Containment (DC), thus making it the single biggest asset to date. Minety has only been in operation for a short amount of time but has already delivered on behalf of its owner, Penso, and supported the grid with much needed flexibility in real time. Limejump is very excited about the future of intelligent battery optimisation and looks forward to continuing to innovate in this space.

Our Head of Engineering, Fraser Wood, commented:

“Limejump is on a mission to optimise a 100% renewable energy future, and in order to achieve that, we need to onboard and intelligently control both renewable generation assets and flexible energy storage assets. Leading the incredibly innovative and hardworking team that optimised and integrated Europe’s first ever 100MW battery, was an honor.” He added ‘Being recognized by the Solar & Storage Live Awards is the cherry on the cake, an accolade that the team and I are very proud of.”

About Minety

In September 2020, Shell, Limejump and Penso Power signed a contract to trade the power output from the largest battery storage asset in Europe, with a capacity of 100 MW.

Limejump and Penso Power collaborated for over a year to secure this game changing project. Limejump’s experience  and commercial acumen, backed by Shell’s creditworthiness by guaranteeing a minimum revenue from the battery, encouraged investors to commit and support the project in Mintey, Wiltshire. Minety went live in July 2021 as is already supporting the grid with much needed flexibility. Limejump’s Engineering team has been instrumental in the energisation of the Minety battery. The team has designed and implemented a system by which Limejump can integrate, and remotely dispatch stored energy when the grid requests it…within 1 second.  This was achieved by installing our control panels on site, plugged directly into the battery’s local controllers.
