AIM-listed firm, which specialises in energy storage infrastructure solutions, announced on Monday that it had secured planning permission for its first UK grid-scale project. The planning permission has been granted at the Cowley substation site -- the proposed location for the project.
“Energy Superhub Oxford” project, or “ESO”, which is valued at an overall £41 million, involves the installation of the world’s first transmission-connected lithium ion and redox-flow hybrid battery. The project will showcase a range of cutting edge technologies, from electric vehicle charging to low carbon heating to support Oxford City Council’s journey to zero carbon emissions.
Neil O'Brien, Executive Chairman at redT acknowledged the significance of the UK project in its showcasing of valuable energy solutions, commenting:
“This is the first UK grid-scale project for redT and will be the largest deployment of vanadium redox flow technology in the UK to date."
The ESO project has progressed as global interest towards reducing emissions and improving public health continues to grow, with governments focusing their efforts increasingly towards sustainability goals. In particular, the project reflects the surge of lithium-ion batteries - a market expected to bring in $60 billion by 2024.
RedT have been working alongside multiple parties to deliver the energy project after annoucing their intial involvement in April this year - and with this next development in place, considered an “important milestone”, the project has been pushed forward appropriately into its next phase.
Mr O'Brien further added, "With planning approval now in place, we're looking forward to moving to the next phase on the Energy Superhub Oxford project alongside our consortium partners.”
