Uskmouth Sustainable Energy Park

Status

In Development

SAE is the owner of the land, grid connection, infrastructure and existing power station at the Uskmouth site in Newport, South Wales. SAE is working to transition the Uskmouth site into a sustainable energy park, which as a first step includes plans to deliver a Battery Energy Storage System (“BESS”).

The Uskmouth site has a 230MW grid connection coupled with significant land and infrastructure that make it a prime location for the delivery of a large-scale, commercially attractive, BESS facility. The widespread integration of BESS into transmission and distribution systems is widely recognised as a key enabler of increased and more rapid integration of intermittent renewable energy into the UK electricity supply.
