About this event

This talk will discuss the construction of one of the world’s largest battery storage facilities at the site of the former Roosecote power station in Barrow.  Construction of the 49MW facility is part of a £180m investment programme into new flexible power plants across the country.  Once complete, the facility will be capable of responding to fluctuations in demand in under a second, holding enough power to meet the needs of around 50,000 homes.

Speaker: Chris Read, Roosecotte Project Leader, Centrica

Organised by: The IET and the KEDS


The talk will start at 19:15.
