Replaces carbon-intensive gas on the UK energy network
Fithie Energy Park
Sustainable energy for everyone
The UK’s energy system is increasingly powered by renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar. These are intermittent sources of energy, and therefore it is more and more important that we develop flexible energy parks to store energy.
Fithie Energy Park will store surplus electricity when consumer demand is low, and release it back on to the National Grid when demand is high. This helps balance the grid network and make the most of these renewable energy sources. At the moment, most of this balancing is done by importing power from abroad or burning carbon-intensive gas. Fithie Energy Park would therefore provide a safe, sustainable solution using an inherently safe, non carbon emitting technology.
