A growing battery energy storage system (BESS) at Wilton International highlights Sembcorp’s leading role in the UK’s transition to a Net Zero future.
In Teesside, Sembcorp Energy UK is primarily known for managing Wilton International and supplying energy and utilities to their customers on the site. But this is just one part of Sembcorp’s UK activities. In fact, the company is a leading UK-wide provider of sustainable energy solutions, supporting the country's transition to Net Zero. Battery storage is one of Sembcorp’s core services - the company has a current operational portfolio of 120MWh across five sites in England. Batteries represent a critical technology in the UK’s energy transition. While renewable energy sources such as wind or solar are sustainable, they are also intermittent - the wind doesn’t blow all the time, the sun doesn’t always shine, or at least not necessarily at times of peak electricity demand.
