Penso Power extending Minety battery storage project to 150MW

Limejump is pleased to see today’s announcement from Penso Power that it is extending its 100MW storage project by a further 50MW.   The Minety project, 12 miles northwest of Swindon (Wiltshire) is Europe’s largest battery storage development.

The development of Minety  project has been enabled by commercial agreements with Limejump and Shell Energy Europe.  Announced last month, Shell has an offtake agreement on the original 100MW project, the largest of its kind globally to date, whilst the batteries will be optimised and dispatched by Limejump.
