Description of the goods or services required
LEM005c ITT for 1MW, 1MWh Battery for a wind farm at Carland Cross, Mid Cornwall
Centrica plc's Cornwall Local Energy Market project (LEM) is an EU-funded initiative involving the development of a virtual energy marketplace. The trial provides homes and businesses with the technology and a software platform to buy and sell energy and flexibility to both the supply networks and the wholesale energy market. The project's overarching aim is to demonstrate that the electricity distribution network can facilitate an increased penetration of renewable / low carbon electricity generation by invoking novel strategies including flexibility.
The LEM project will enable energy asset flexibility in the most constrained areas on the distribution network in Cornwall. To this end the project is installing low carbon energy generation assets, such as natural gas CHP, renewable energy generation, storage, private wire networks, and demand-side response technologies into selected industrial and commercial premises in Cornwall.
The scope of this Invitation to Tender (ITT) is to procure a Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) to be located at, and connected to, the Scottish Power Renewables (SPR), Carland Cross Wind Farm in Cornwall. The scope includes the design of the BESS as well as execution of transport, off-loading, installation, commissioning, testing and sign off/certification. The final BESS will demonstrate the co-location of renewable technologies, being sited on an operational wind farm and with a proposed PV array in development on site.
