A megawatt-scale energy storage system will be rented out to power a gold mine in Western Australia by Aggreko, the mobile power solutions company which bought up energy storage provider Younicos last year.
Increasingly, solar energy and behind-the-meter battery storage assets are being deployed on an ‘as-a-service’ basis and system integrator Younicos has decided to replicate the strategy for microgrids.
UK-based power, heating and cooling equipment manufacturer Aggreko is investing £33 million in research and development.
The launch of an energy storage ‘as-a-service’ model by lithium battery pioneer Younicos is a “truly mobile offer” the company has said, based around renting assets to clients over two- to four-year contracts.
Energy storage provider and system integrator Younicos has been bought out by Aggreko, a power generation equipment and energy controls supplier.
