Eden Project to deploy and demonstrate battery storage

The Eden Project, Cornwall's top green visitor attraction, is planning to power a cleaner future for itself  with five 'fridge-sized' battery storage units to match their energy demand with renewable supply, and deliver cost savings.

Eden project copyRenewable energy providers, Good Energy, has teamed-up with the Eden Project to deliver the solution. This is the first venture by Good Energy into the battery storage market and marks a new strategic direction for the company.

Eden's new battery, due to be installed in summer 2018, will be a combination of five x 50kW battery units and a control centre. Eden plans to create a new exhibit to show its visitors how the battery works and the environmental and economic benefits it will provide.

"We're delighted to partner with our friends at the Eden Project to help them become the first commercial site of its kind, to harness renewables through battery storage.

Eden Project BF 02 copy"Our unique proposition makes battery storage commercially viable for the first time at this scale, and is a major breakthrough in reducing reliance on the National Grid and reaching our shared goal of a 100% renewable UK,
" said Dr Randall Bowen, Director of Business Services at Good Energy.

Peter Wroe, Finance Director at Eden Project, said: "Eden is an educational charity so we are pleased to be showcasing this battery storage technology, building on our work with Good Energy on the groundbreaking Selectricity project. This is part of Eden's ongoing efforts to demonstrate innovative and sustainable solutions to energy issues."

Eden is already powered by local renewable energy via the Selectricity scheme, in which Good Energy is a partner. Selectricity enables businesses to choose the renewable generators who provide their energy.
