Solar stands to be a “new backbone” of the power sector as it cements its status as the world’s “dominant new build generation technology”, Vattenfall’s head of solar and battery storage has said.
Vattenfall is to make a play for dominance in the UK’s electric vehicle charging market with the launch of its open access InCharge concept next month.
Vattenfall has brought online its 22MW battery project co-located with the Pen y Cymoedd onshore wind farm in Wales, becoming the latest company to start delivering sub-second frequency response to National Grid.
Vattenfall is bringing customisable power purchase agreements (PPAs) to business customers in Britain as part of a “new approach” to corporate energy sourcing.
A new record for wind generation was set in the UK last weekend against the backdrop of an increasingly competitive subsidy-free race in Europe.
Vattenfall has announced plans to invest up to €100 million in developing solar plants over the next two years.
