Work Starts at U.K.’s Top Storage Project Using Tesla Batteries

  • Batteries could help prevent price spikes like those on Monday
  • The facility will provide 99 megawatts of power for two hours

Construction started on the Britain’s biggest energy storage project, a technology that will be vital to boost supplies when there’s little sun or wind. 

The facility in southeast England will store energy from renewable sources to be used during peak hours, using Tesla Inc.’s Megapack lithium-ion batteries. The U.K. is in dire need of the technology to help prevent price spikes such as those earlier this week.
