Clearstone sells two UK storage projects to Foresight

May 25, 2023

UK renewable developer Clearstone Energy has sold two battery energy storage system (BESS) projects in southern England to Foresight Energy Infrastructure Partners. 

The projects are: Sundon BESS, a 49.5MW project north of London that will connect with National Grid’s Energy Park initiative; and Warley BESS, a 57MW project in Essex. Both sites have grid connection dates in 2024. 

The projects will be built on land owned by National Grid that is close to substations on its national high voltage transmission network. The National Grid Energy Park programme aims to work with developers to speed up the process of adding battery storage to the transmission network.
