JLEN Environmental Assets Group has commenced commercial operations at its West Gourdie 50MW battery energy storage system (BESS).

Situated in Dundee, Scotland, the grid battery will provide critical balancing support to the GB electricity network, reducing system imbalance and volatility.

The construction of the project was undertaken by EPC Contractor Anesco, with management oversight from the Foresight Group construction team and DNV-GL, the appointed owners engineer.

The BESS will be operated by Flexitricity with Green Nation set to provide asset management services, while Anesco will provide operations and maintenance services

Investment manager for JLEN Chris Tanner said: “Seeing JLEN's first battery storage investment become operational is a significant milestone for the company.

“Battery energy storage projects play a vital role in advancing the decarbonisation agenda by reducing system imbalance, enhancing the grid's ability to harness a greater level of intermittent renewables.

“Investments such as these provide attractive returns over time, we are therefore pleased to have provided JLEN investors with exposure to this exciting asset class and look forward to advancing our other battery storage assets to commercial operations, in order to create further capital growth for our shareholders."
