Innovative large-scale energy storage will play an important role in decarbonising industry, power, heat and transport.

This competition is looking for innovative, replicable solutions which could provide a market competitive alternative to conventional commercial large scale energy storage technologies, for example, pumped-hydro or batteries (such as lithium ion, lead acid or sodium-sulfur).

A range of electrical energy storage technologies are within scope, with a target minimum output power of 30 MW or minimum capacity of 50 MWh. Power-to-X technologies (e.g., power-to-gas) with a target minimum input power of 5 MW are also in scope.

Up to £20 million will be available from 2019 to 2021. The competition will support up to 3 demonstration projects with build completion by March 2021 and operational testing to be completed by December 2021.

Projects should be at a Technology Readiness Level of 6 or above, which could result in lower capital or operating costs to the traditional storage technologies, or improved capacity, sustainability and response rates at a comparable cost.
