Enel has started operations at the 25MW Tynemouth battery energy storage system in Newcastle, north-east England.

The project is supported by a four-year Enhanced Frequency Response contract with National Grid.

Enel bought the Tynemouth facility from Element Power last year, with the latter supporting the Italian company with its final delivery. 

The €20m project will be remotely managed from Enel's global thermal generation monitoring room in Italy. 

Enel head of global thermal generation Enrico Viale said: “The commissioning of Tynemouth is an important milestone for Enel since it is the group’s first utility-scale, stand-alone battery energy storage system, showing the potential of this promising solution in addressing the challenges of the energy transition.”

Element Power Europe grid manager Guy Nicholson said: “We are delighted to have assisted Enel in delivering one of the UK's first battery storage projects providing ancillary value-added services to the grid.”
