In 2018, the company announced plans to build out a 1GW portfolio of energy storage and gas peaker projects across the UK after securing initial funding of £200 million from an offshore fund of institutional investment.

Having now been acquired by Masdar, a UAE-stated owned renewable energy company, it is expected that Arlington will continue its expansion into the UK market and develop a stronger portfolio of renewable energy projects. This will enable the development, construction, operational management and financing of BESS projects under one Masdar-Arlington platform. 

The acquisition comes at a time when investors are becoming increasingly interested in battery storage as projects become more profitable and cost-effective, according to industry experts.
