The 50MW portfolio is now fully operational and includes a 40 MW facility in Glassenbury in Kent which features 3,640 battery modules with an installed energy capacity of 27.65MWh, and a 10 MW installation in Cleator in Cumbria,which consists of 900 battery modules with an installed energy capacity of 6.97MWh.

Together they represent the largest portfolio of utility-scale battery energy storage systems connected to the UK grid. The Cleator and Glassenbury sites secured two contracts with National Grid in August 2016 for battery energy storage systems to provide Enhanced Frequency Response (EFR) to the UK system operator.
