Shakespeare Martineau LLP has recently advised Renewable Energy Systems Limited (RES) on their involvement as an engineering procurement and construction contractor and system services operator for the 25MW Tynemouth battery storage project in the UK.

RES will engineer, procure and construct a RESolve® Energy Storage System using its UK based engineering and construction teams, and operate the project from its 24-hour control centre in Glasgow. , an energy partner at Shakespeare Martineau LLP who led legal work on the deal for RES commented:

“Being involved with one of the world’s leading battery storage providers and contractors has been a real pleasure, in particular on a project that will help deliver innovation to the energy sector. The provision of Enhanced Frequency Response from battery storage is new to the UK energy arena and having the opportunity to work with RES on an initiative that is aiming to create a more flexible system has been hugely rewarding. We’re looking forward to seeing the benefit that battery storage can bring to the industry in the future.”
