Field builds and operates large batteries which store energy to help create a greener, more stable electricity grid.

We’d like to build one of these batteries, Field Corriemoillie, on land north of the A832 and north-east of Corriemoillie Substation, IV23 2PY.

Providing up to 200 MW of electricity to create a greener & more stable grid.

Why do we need big batteries?

To reach net zero, increase energy security and help reduce energy bills, we need to store renewable energy and improve the electricity grid’s stability and reliability.

Our batteries are designed to fill gaps in the UK’s electricity supply by charging up when renewable energy is being produced (such as on windy or sunny days) and discharging energy back into the grid when needed (e.g. when the wind isn’t blowing, the sun isn’t shining, or we aren’t able to import energy from elsewhere). This ensures plenty of energy is available for people to make their morning cuppa, even on a calm, overcast winter’s day.

These batteries work a lot like the batteries you use at home, only instead of using our batteries to power a torch or TV remote, we operate large, ‘grid scale’ batteries. This means we can rely more on renewable energy and less on expensive fossil fuels to provide electricity to thousands of homes and businesses.

Batteries are also very good at keeping the grid stable, by maintaining a constant and predictable supply of electricity to the grid, at the right frequency.

Changes in the supply and demand of electricity on the network create changes in this electrical frequency. This needs to be closely monitored, as if frequency is too high or too low, the network cannot operate properly. Field Corriemoillie will help to keep this frequency at the right level, which in turn helps reduce the chances of network disruptions or blackouts.
