Carrington, UK

The Carrington facility is a 50 MW cryogenic energy storage plant with a minimum of 250MWh that will help the UK achieve its decarbonization goals. It received a £10 million pound grant from the UK’s Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy as part of a Storage at Scale Competition.

The facility is located at Trafford Energy Park, just outside Manchester and will be one of Europe’s largest energy storage systems. It will supply clean, reliable, and cost-efficient long-duration energy storage and essential grid services.

Work at the site is underway. It will use existing substation and transmission infrastructure, with its income derived from several markets.

Pilsworth Grid Scale Demonstrator Plant

In addition to providing energy storage, the cryogenic energy storage plant converts low-grade waste heat from the GE Jenbacher landfill gas engines to power.

Operation started in April 2018 at Pilsworth Landfill facility in Bury, Greater Manchester. The plant demonstrates how cryogenic energy storage can provide balancing services, including Short Term Operating Reserve (STOR) and supporting the grid during winter peaks.

Developed in partnership with recycling and renewable energy company, Viridor, the project is backed by UK government funding of £8 million.
