Basildon is a 28MW/56MWh Battery Energy Storage System located in Essex, England, to the east of London. Construction is due to commence in early 2024 and the battery is expected to be operational in Q4 2024.

Once complete, the battery will provide vital flexibility to enable more renewable generation and increase the resilience of the UK electricity network. 

To meet net zero by 2050, the UK Government has committed to decarbonise the electricity system by 2035. Battery storage is a critical enabler of this transition, helping to store and shift renewable generation to times of day when it is most needed, while helping to balance electricity supply and demand second-by-second.
