Pipeline

The utility scale battery market is relatively nascent worldwide, and the Adviser has been able to identify attractive opportunities in markets including the UK, Ireland, North America and North-West Europe. The Adviser is among the first entrants into the market by being one of the first commercial players to be involved with the installation and commissioning of a project in England through the facility at Boulby. As a result, the Adviser has developed a market leading approach to investing in battery storage projects in the UK market and has built up a significant and wide-ranging contact base within the energy storage industry.

 

Lithium-ion Batteries

Although the projects comprising the Seed Portfolio utilise lithium-ion batteries and much of the pipeline of investments identified by the Company are also expected to utilise lithium-ion batteries, the Company is generally agnostic about which technology it utilises in its energy storage projects. The Company does not presently see any energy storage technology which is a viable alternative to lithium-ion batteries. However, there are a number of technologies which are being researched which if successfully commercialised, could prove over time more favourable and the Company will closely monitor such developing technologies.
