PF Nexus recognises 10 of the biggest BESS developers in Europe

Battery energy storage systems (BESS) developments are becoming increasingly commonplace in Europe as countries need to store their renewable energy.

According to BloombergNEF, Europe is on track to exceed 300 GWh of storage capacity by 2030. This is no surprise since BESS developments allow for renewable energy to be integrated into the grid and supplement a country’s energy demand.

BESS developments stabilise a country’s energy infrastructure. For instance, Europe’s first commercial BESS development, Schwerin Battery Park, in Germany was able to restore power to a grid in the midst of an unexpected blackout.

Moreover, Ørsted developed a BESS project, the Carnegie Road Battery Storage Project, in the UK with a storage capacity of 20 MW. The renewable energy leader emphasised the importance of BESS and how it can leverage their other renewable projects to achieve balance in a country’s energy system.

Major players in European BESS development include Scatec, SSE Renewables, Gresham House, and RP Global. BESS development is the next step to securing sustainable infrastructure. These BESS developers are dedicated to innovating more opportunities to mitigate climate change and achieve decarbonisation goals.
