Mack stated that the team is “particularly excited” to begin constructing the co-located BESS highlighting that it is a “key enabling technology that will help accelerate the transition”.

He added: “The deployment of storage alongside our solar assets is an efficient use of limited grid capacity and will support the UK’s efforts to tackle climate change.”
